New Chicagoland bike map released
Chicagoland bicyclists now have the most up-to-date riding and route information, thanks to the release of the new, fifth edition of the Chicagoland Bike Map. The map is the result of many volunteers around the region bicycling, surveying, and documenting new and old trails, existing road conditions, and the surrounding areas. In addition, a series of public meetings gathered input from cyclists and residents to ensure the accuracy and comprehensiveness of the map.
The new edition, produced by the Active Transportation Alliance, features:
- Expanded coverage -- north to Lake Geneva, south to the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie in Will County, and southwest to Grundy County
- More connections, trails, and on-street bike facilities and routes
- Icons for all the bicycle and bike repair shops in the region
- Preserved open spaces, rail transit lines and stations, and historic sites
Copies of the map are available online for $10.
