I was able to cover 3 popular bikepaths while cycling around Chicago and the Northshore suburbs this week. The bike paths include the 35 mile Rt Chicago lakefront, the 34.6 mile Rt Northbranch and the Chicago & Skokie Channel Park bike path that runs along McCormick Ave in Skokie and continues south to Kedzie & Lawrence in Chicago, this is a 12 mile Rt. I also biked up Sheridan Rd from Evanston to Glencoe and connected to the Northbranch bikepath to return to Chicago.
All of these a less than 5 miles from my home on the North side of Chicago. Cold weather and wind kept the masses at home and riding was great.
