While not of the bacon, lettuce and tomato kind, the BLT aka The Boulevard Lakefront Tour is brought to you by the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation. From the site: "Join us for the 16th Annual Boulevard Lakefront Tour! One of Chicago's favorite bike rides, the BLT explores our great city's 'emerald necklace' the parks, boulevards and historic places on the South and West Sides." It goes down this Sunday, September 12th and registration is still open. Your choice of 10 mile or 35 mile ride. How many people did this last year? Over 2,200.
