How about a party on a bike? Imagine a 25-mile leisure ride (no hills, just a little bit on the bridges) through the city we love, Chinatown, Greek Town, the north side, grassy parks, and the incredible lakefront paths (never open at night except at our event). Cap it off with a sunrise over Lake Michigan.
It's Chicago's L.A.T.E. ride (Long After Twilight Ends!) Make sure to sign up, we usually have 9,000 participants at this fundraiser for Friends of the Parks. Thanks to CBS2 Chicago for their sponsorship.
Here's the plan. Come out Saturday night, June 30, to Buckingham Fountain for fun starting before midnight...then technically the ride starts on Sunday, July 1 at 1 a.m.
Forget the bike lanes, you'll be riding right down the middle of Chicago streets for the tour of a lifetime. Sign up at www.lateride.org. Your money goes to a great cause and the goody bag is awesome. See you after dark!
