bike the drive chicago 2014.
A Memorial Day Weekend tradition, started by Mayor Richard M. Daley in 2004, an avid biker himself, Lake Shore Drive is closed for cyclists. From 5:30a to 10:15a you can ride north to Bryn Mawr then go south to the Museum of Science and Industry as many times as you want, a loop of 30 miles. This is a fun(d)-raising event costing $62 dollars. But with online registration already closed on the morning of the event, and an expected 20,000 riders, getting a free pass is not too strictly enforced.
