Casting off its usual negative disposition of gloom and depression for one night only, the Lenexa Optimist Club presents the 13th-Annual Lenexa Midnight Bike Ride and offers a choice of two routes, which begin in Old Town Lenexa at Santa Fe Trail and Pflumm. Contrary to counterculture hippie rides, this city-sanctioned ride will feature a bike-safety and headlight check from 10:30 to 11 p.m., and Lenexa police will control traffic. You can pick up late registration packets today at Sports Authority (12014 West 95th Street, Lenexa, 913-599-5627). For more information, including a route map, see midnight bikeride.org.
