Our Sponsors

Many thanks to our title sponsor Northwestern Medicine, and to our other great sponsors shown below.

Northwestern Medicine

Northwestern Medicine is proud to serve as the principal sponsor and title healthcare sponsor for the July 22, 2017, Northwestern Medicine Lake Bluff Criterium & Block Party. We are thrilled to bring this premier event to our community for the sixth year and invite our neighbors to join us for family fun and world-class cycling.

The Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital team will provide first aid to cyclists as needed. Bicycling is a fun sport that suits all ages and we hope this event inspires community residents to be active and live a healthy lifestyle.

As a proud member of this community, our goal is to keep you healthy through prevention and wellness, advanced technologies and access to world-class care, all close to where you live and work. Whether it’s an everyday checkup or a more complex visit with a specialist, Lake Forest Hospital is providing better solutions for every patient.

The official pace car of the Lake Bluff Criterium is provided by Knauz Automotive Group. The all-electric BMW i3 with innovative eDrive technology is built with Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP), just like many of the high-end bikes racing in the Lake Bluff Criterium. It boasts speed, responsiveness, and is emission-free, making it the ideal choice to lead the pack of professional cyclists.
