City Cycling USA: Chicago

Greg Borzo

A practical and entertaining guide to Chicago for cycling enthusiasts

This handy compact guide tells you all you need to know about seeing Chicago on two wheels. With chapters dedicated to various sights and neighborhoods—Wicker Park, Lakefront Path South, West Side, Lincoln Park, and Downtown—City Cycling USA: Chicago dispels the myth that the Windy City can’t be toured by bike.

Each area is mapped out in detail and includes recommendations for cafes, bars, galleries, museums, shops, and parks that are worth a visit. Cyclists can follow a set itinerary or pick and choose as they wish. For cycling enthusiasts, the section on Racing and Training gives some context to Chicago’s cycling heritage and offers ideas for longer and more scenic routes in the countryside.
