I have about an 8 mile bike ride to work, I usually take a street called Kedzie which has a shared bike lane then get up on the North Shore Channel Trail. It’s an okay ride and I thought I would share some pictures.
Shared bike lane means both sides of the lane aren’t marked off and you have to trust the cars. It’s not too bad.
^How its marked.
Then you get to the trail. This is the river it goes by – it’s super disgusting though. Most of the rivers that run through Chicago are man made so something just isn’t right about them, very polluted.
Once I get to the trail I usually take off my helmet so that I cool off before I get to work, I don’t like walking in all red and sweaty. The trail goes through the Chicago Park districts then it crosses into the suburbs Lincolnwood, then Skokie.
When the trail hits Lincolnwood and Skokie it’s known as the sculpture park also due to the sculptures that line the path. It’s a nice path and brings me right by work
