By Benjy Lipsman in News on Jun 30, 2004 6:38PM

You still have time to register for Chicago's 16th annual L.A.T.E. Ride, which takes place Sat. July 10th/Sun. July 11th. Join 10,000 cyclists for a 25 mile ride through Greek Town, the Loop, Old Town, Lincoln Park and along Chicago's lakefront path. The ride itself begins at 1:30am in Grant Park and finishes up around dawn at Buckingham Fountain.

You can register online or in person during the remaining packet pick-ups:

    Monday, July 5 from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
    Deerbrook Mall (Waukegan and Lake-Cook Road), Deerfield

    Tuesday, July 6 from 5:00 - 9:00 p.m.
    1015 E. Golf Rd, Schaumburg

    Wednesday, July 7 from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
    The James R. Thompson Center
    100 W. Randolph (street level), Chicago

The cost is $40 in advance, or $45 night of the ride.

Chicagoist rode in the L.A.T.E. Ride two years ago and plans to ride again this year, because we enjoy startling the drunks on Lincoln at 3am as much as we enjoy watching the sunrise while riding along the lakefront.
