It's good, but not great.

I'm always happy to see more bike lanes added in Chicago, but I can't help but wonder what's being done to upkeep the lanes. The 18th street path to lakefront is always busy with bikers, and the potholes and incredibly dangerous!

I am happy to be a Chicago biker, potholes or no!

Chicago => Milwaukee

Hey Cullen,

There's a couple routes up to Milwaukee from Chicago:

1) Bike paths
There's a series of bike paths from Chicago all the way up to about 10 miles south of Milwaukee. You just need to navigate up to the Robert McClory path (http://www.traillink.com/trail/robert-mcclory-bike-path-(formerly-north-shore-bike-path).aspx), then when you hit Kenosha that'll turn into the Pike Bike trail.

Here's some additional info: http://wibikeroutes.net/Milwaukee-Chicago_files/Milwaukee-Chicago.html

Searching "Chicago to Milwaukee" and choosing the bicycle icon via Google Maps will get you the route too.

I rode this with friends two summers ago up and back and it was a nice route.

2) Follow the lake
I know it sounds simple, but you can follow Sheridan Road all the way up to Wisconsin, then from there just follow the Lake Michigan "Circle Tour" signs.

I rode this last summer by myself and preferred it over the bicycle paths. With that said, I've got a road bike and put in a good amount of miles so if you're hesitant about option #2 just take the paths up.

Good luck!

Milwaukee to Chicago by bike?

I've always been interested in finding a bike route from Milwaukee to Chicago.

This article makes me MORE curious. I must explore my southern neighbor by bike soon.
