Lake Shore Drive is closed again this weekend, and a lot more of it than the 3 1/2 miles that shut down for the NATO Summit nearly a week ago. But this time, you might still be able to get on the lakeside highway if you have a bike.
The Annual Bike the Drive is this weekend, and you can still register to ride — online, at packet pickup on Saturday, or on the day of the event.
Bike the Drive begins at Jackson and Columbus Drive at 5:30 a.m. Sunday, and heads north on Lake Shore Drive at Bryn Mawr Avenue and back south again to 57th Street before returning downtown.
