Kick off your Chicago summer with a car-free bike ride down world-famous Lake Shore Drive May 30, 2010 for the ninth annual MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive. Registration is now open at www.bikethedrive.org.
The event is a fundraiser for the Active Transportation Alliance, Chicagoland’s voice for better biking, walking and transit.
