Philadelphia went live yesterday as well.
 
A dark photo of my L-estBS
 
...and Chicago's biker (yes, this kind of biker) bar
 
I found this while virtually driving around looking for a StreetView shot of "The Bean":
Millennium Park, Chicago
 
And one on the lakefront path in Chicago. (I like my first one better, but I had to put one up from the path.)
 
OK. One More. This is a bike shop with an actual bike rider in front of it. Now back to work.

Burnham Harbor, Chicago. This looks even better in "full screen". In the background is Northerly Island, which used to be Meig's Field airport. This area of Chicago is just a little north of the convention center where, one hopes, Interbike might be held some day.
 
In front of the Shedd Aquarium, Chicago with a nice view of the skyline.
I guess what this proves is that Chicago is a great town for bikes or that I'm obsessive about this contest.
 
The Battle of Chicagos continues with another LFP shot.
 
Ok Dingbat, you hang out in your hood and take the Lakefront Path and I'll work my hood and travel Sheridan Road (damn, Google hit the suburbs!)
 
I can't take credit for finding this --it came from the Chicago fixed gear forum--but it deserves to win!
 
Timothy, what's the location you're talking about? Is it the bike theft thing from Pittsburgh that Urban Velo mentioned?
 
Morrison, CO. Here is a cyclist heading west towards Morrison. A cyclists playground here along the front range.
