The second stage of the 8th Annual Tour Da Chicago alleycat bike race was held last Sunday morning. Photographer Arielle Bielak has been taking an incredible number of pictures (including a few of yours truly) and posting them to her site, Bikelust.org. If you woke up to find your boyfriend/girlfriend/roommate and their bike inexplicably gone, chances are you'll see 'em here.
