What: Join me in the "L.A.T.E. Ride"

When: Saturday, July 10,[masked]:00 PM

Buckingham Fountain
500 S Columbus Dr
Chicago, IL 60604

This is NOT a race! Cycle at your own pace.

Early Bird Registration rate until midnight on April 30 $40.00

Saturday night/Sunday morning July 10/11, 2010

Join me and up to 9,000 bicyclists on Saturday night/Sunday morning July 10/11 for Friends of the Parks? L.A.T.E. Ride. Enjoy a 25-mile ride through Chicago's neighborhoods and along the lakefront. Cycle past skyscrapers, hear shout of "Opaah!" in Greek Town, cruise through the North Side, wave to onlookers, and watch the sun rise over Lake Michigan. Plus, you?ll enjoy music before the ride, sponsor booths to explore, refreshments before the ride and at the rest stop, and great food and beverages after your trek through the city.


Since our first-ever ride in 1989, participants have gathered at Buckingham Fountain about midnight and the ride itself has kicked off at 1:30 a.m. We are looking into starting the 2010 ride a bit earlier (maybe an 11pm or midnight start).

Because the final schedule has not yet been confirmed, we can?t give you an exact timeframe.

Your registration for The L.A.T.E. Ride includes:

A short-sleeved 100% cotton L.A.T.E. Ride T-shirt (FREE for all riders who sign up by July 9th!)
Pocket-size Rider Guide with official route map
Goody Bag filled with coupons, sample stuff and mandatory Rider Number (see below)
Prizes for Best Lit Bike and Best Decorated Helmet
Bicycle support, if needed, provided by Village Cycle Center
Support from police officers and volunteer Course Marshals
Rest stop with water, refreshments and snacks
First-aid support, if needed.
Refreshments after the ride at Buckingham Fountain
