L.A.T.E. Ride

L.A.T.E. Ride 2001

You still have a week or so to register for this year’s L.A.T.E. Ride without the $5 last-minute penalty (though, since the money goes to the Friends of the Parks I don’t even begrudge them that when I have signed up late). The ride is Saturday night, July 10 to Sunday morning, July 11.

The LATE Ride (I’m going to dispense with those egregious periods from now on) is my favorite of Chicago’s mass biking events. Bike the Drive is fun to do once (we’re biking on Lake Shore Drive! whee!) but in the end it’s just a back-and-forth along a straight road. The LATE Ride is 22-miles around the whole northside, in the middle of the night. Zooming through Greektown with 10,000 riders at 2:00 am, surprising all the drunks, is worth the whole ride. And then there’s Lincoln Ave and Foster. And, free bananas!

    I’ve always wanted to ride this. I was a volunteer a few years back and it’s quite the scene. Any other metbloggers thinking about taking this one on?
