Written for cyclists of all stripes, Best Bike Rides Chicago presents a diverse array of scenic tours in and around one of America’s prime urban destinations—from easy excursions for the Sunday cyclist to challenging treks for the veteran. Author and cyclist Ted Villaire describes thirty-four rides in and around the Windy City.
This guide indeed has plenty to choose from. Chicago and its environs offer gentle terrain, the lakeshore, an abundance of bike paths, and unique neighborhoods and communities to explore. Farther out—whether you’re in the collar counties, Indiana, Michigan, or Wisconsin—you’ll find scores of parks with rivers, lakes, woodlands, wetlands, and restored prairie . . . not to mention quiet farm roads, charming towns, and unforgettable restaurants and shops.
