CHICAGO — Motorists should avoid Lake Shore Drive Sunday morning as it'll be taken over by the Active Transportation Alliance for the 14th annual MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive.
From 5:30-10:30 a.m., Lake Shore Drive will be closed from Hollywood Avenue south to 59th Street. Cars still will be allowed to access the Museum Campus using 18th Street and to access Navy Pier using Illinois Street, according to the alliance.
Those interested in the once-a-year 30-mile round trip — and all its fantastic views — can still sign up here. The cost to ride is $47 for adults, $16 for children under 18 and $63 for adults signing up Sunday.
The event begins at 5:30 a.m. and organizers suggest riders begin no later to 7 a.m. to fully enjoy the event. All riders will be given a rider number, helmet number and wristband that must be worn during the event. Light snacks and water will be available at the three rest stops.
Don't have your own bike? Divvy bikes are allowed and organizers have arranged for discounted bike rentals from three places listed here.
All registered participants can start at the following locations:
• Columbus Drive and Jackson Drive
• Bryn Mawr Rest Stop
• Museum of Science and Industry Rest Stop
• Fullerton Check Point
• Oakwood Check Point
The event will end with a post-ride festival at Butler Field in Grant Park with live music, breakfast and contests.
