Did You Know?
Bus riders account for more than 20 percent of people using Lake Shore Drive every day while taking up a fraction of the space that cars do.
Choosing a route
The best biking route is often very different from the best driving route. Follow these tips to plan out a safer, more effective route for bicycling.
- Plan your route using a bicycle map of your community, if available.
- Ride on streets with bike lanes and enough room to ride outside of the “door zone” when riding alongside parallel parked cars.
- Consider riding on residential streets when starting out, even if they take you a bit out of the way.
- Cross major streets at traffic signals.
