I live smack in the middle of downtown Chicago. I don't have a car.
My problem- how do I ride and get my mileage? I would love to get in my 30- 50 miles per day, but I have no idea of where to go to get it. I could ride up and down the lakefront, but I HATE the lakefront. There are so many STUPID walkers and recreational riders and dogs and kids, that it seems more dangerous to ride on the bike path then to ride in the streets.
I am looking for some low cost alternatives here. Any ideas?
