Chicago’s first protected bike lane on Kinzie St. increased ridership by 55 percent without increasing traffic congestion for cars.

January events on the Lakefront Trail

Happy new year to all! May your 2018 be filled with walks, runs and rides along the Lakefront Trail.

The Active Transportation Alliance compiles a list of events happening each month along the Lakefront Trail.

See what’s going on in the month of January so you can better plan your walking, biking or running route. As winter weather consumes our city, there are fewer events to watch out for.

For regular updates about the Lakefront Trail, follow our Lakefront Trail Twitter page and the #chiLFT hashtag.

NOTE: For updates on the Lakefront Trail separation construction, visit the Chicago Park District’s page. Temporarily, all path users are asked to share the newly separated bike trail between Fullerton Parkway and North Avenue. Reminder, please use caution and slow down in work zones.
