Friends of the Parks’ L.A.T.E. Ride

Join up to 9,000 bicyclists on Saturday night/Sunday morning July 10/11 2010 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. 

Pedal for Parks!
Friends of the Parks’ L.A.T.E. Ride is Chicago's biggest charity bicycle ride! Proceeds from the event benefit Friends of the Parks, a 34-year-old not-for-profit parks advocacy group whose mission is to protect and improve Chicago's parks and forest preserves in Cook County. Since 1975, Friends of the Parks has served as the city's strongest independent advocate for improved parks and park programs, for the creation of new parks, and for better management of Chicago's recreational resources. Friends of the Parks hosts an annual Earth Day citywide parks clean-up, an Adopt-a-Park program, community service days, a neighborhood greening initiative, and park tours. We've hosted our after-midnight ride, our biggest fundraiser, since 1989. Your generous support makes our work possible!
