Lake Shore Drive is closed to drivers Sunday morning, to make way for the annual MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive event.
The route opened up at 5:30 a.m., and all cyclists had to enter at Columbus and Jackson drives. Cyclists are allowed to go 30 miles from Bryn Mawr Avenue to the north and 57th Street to the south.
The event benefits the Active Transportation Alliance, who strives “to make biking, walking and public transportation easier and safer throughout the region.”
All bicycles must be off Lake Shore Drive by 10:15 a.m.
