Time of year
to explore the beautiful skyline of Chicago it is a must for every visitor to rent a bike abd follow the trail. Nice views, aa lot of places to rest and enjoy the lake and the the city skyline.
started at the north end by evanston,meandered thru Northwestern campus,then onto street traffic & neighborhoods. Once on lakefront path well maintained & worth the trek.
Can make the city accessible for bikes and pedestrian traffic. Great way to step away from the bustle of the loop or to walk up to the North Shore.
To say that it's crowded, especially on weekends, is an understatement. Bike riding is simply too dangerous. Even with the new paths, people just step out in front of you. If you use, use the south end of it that isn't so crowded.
Bike it, run, walk or jog. Lay around on the grass. Locals or tourists. Great views. Overpriced food stands along the way.
