This weekend I bringing five people to do Bike The Drive. I have come every year since the second one, and really enjoy the ride, and of course Chicago. We also want to ride Saturday and Monday. Can anyone give me some good lunch/dinner spots North we can get to from LFP? We don't mind bike lanes either. Also north/south streets with bike lanes. I think Clark, but it has been a year. Can't wait to visit!See More
