Chicago L.A.T.E. Ride: July 11/12

Posted by Jim Moffitt on June 10, 2009

Join 9,000 bicyclists for Chicago’s ONLY after-midnight ride. I hate to sound like an advertisement but I want to spread the word that this is the most enjoyable group ride I’ve found. The immense amount of bicyclists takes on its own Aura; their collective momentum along Chicago’s skyscraper lined streets seems to pull you along practically un-assisted. The home stretch along the lakefront trail at sunrise is absolutely spectacular. Come join us, nurture your bicycling soul….

    The LATE ride has been special to my husband and I ever since we stumbled over it a few years ago. We’ve done it three or four years now and it’s special every time. Riding through the city during the night is amazing, the crowd is fun, the bikes and decorations on the bikes are a hoot, and the atmosphere in the neighborhoods as you pass through is festive. You stop traffic when you’re in a group this large, and the idling cars can’t believe what they’re seeing at 3 o’clock in the morning. You need to do this once in your life if you love cycling.

    Sounds like an awesome experience! I wanna do it but I can’t believe they charge $40 for it. The nerve!
