Biking the Drive

Today, I participated in Chicago's 8th annual Bike the Drive where, for a brief five hours between 5 and 10AM, Lake Shore Drive is closed to traffic and folks from all over Chicago can see the city from one of it's most famous thoroughfares. Here's some pics:

The start: head North or South? (We went North)

Looking back at Chicago from the Fullerton overpass.

The new Trump Tower from the Chicago River overpass.

Resting in the part after the ride.

And of course: breakfast! (Pancakes and yogurt)

Famous people were interviewed, like this little guy.

One of the better helmets I saw

It was a great time. Be sure to do it next year.


More pics at the Chicago Tribune.
