This Saturday night into Sunday, July 9-10, join 8,000 cyclists riding on behalf of Chicago parks during the L.A.T.E. Ride.

Breeze through downtown, mosey through the North Side neighborhoods and then gaze at the stars along the Lakefront Trail.

Enjoy live music before the ride and refreshments at the rest stop and at sunrise. Proceeds benefit Friends of the Parks, Chicago's voice for better parks and playgrounds.

Pre-registration is $45 and includes a free T-shirt and refreshments; on-site registration is also $45 (T-shirt extra). Save $5 when registering online with discount code ATA5E7.
