9,000 riders take to Chicago’s streets by night

Late-night ride attracts thousands

At 1:30 Sunday morning, 9,000 cyclists set out on Chicago’s annual Long After Twilight Ends (LATE) ride, a 25-mile circuit ride that starts and ends at Buckingham Fountain, and takes in northside neighborhoods and the Chicago Lakefront Path.

Here’s the only Flickr photo I could find; anyone seen any others?

Update: Here’s the L.A.T.E. Ride’s official site, and here’s a post from someone who rode this year’s.

Also see Do the Seattle to Portland (STP) ride and Portland Anyone?

kellie While John and Kelli pedal those miles, I’ll be racing with the boys in the Skagit Flats in a Kermesse style race, which is a fast circuit.

Seattle to Portland Blogging

Seattle to Portland, the biggest cycling event of the year in the Pacific Northwest is this weekend and we’ve got STP bloggers on board. They’ll start posting soon and I’ll introduce them over the weekend.

Levi Leipheimer’s Ride to Redemption

With Landis in yellow, as exciting as that is, I wanted to note that Leipheimer’s ride was equally impressive. All that the tour is was expressed in his ride yesterday. Redeeming oneself after a bad day, gritting your teeth, and riding into glory is done in races everywhere. All the greats have done it and even the not so great. Be it in the tour, your local team ride, or event, getting dropped and coming back another day is part of cycling and fuels this sport.

I agree with Julich who thinks that Leipheimer can top 5 and we may even see 2 Americans on the podium this year.
