I was just curious about what time most of the bike commuters are out there. Usually my ride to work is pretty deserted but I was up and out a couple of hours earlier than normal this morning and I was surprised by the increase in cyclists out there.
It seems there is a legitimate cycling rush hour, what time do you think that is?
I typically leave Skokie at 5am and then leave the UIC (medical district) for the return trip around 4-4:30pm.
7:40-8:15 and 4:30-5:05 Buena and Sheridan to State and Erie.
I try to be in the Loop at 8:30, when I'm a little earlier or latter I see a lot more cyclists. It seems like there's a group of 8:00 people and a group of 9:00 people.
I typically leave the Loop around 6:00 or 6:30 and don't see many other cyclists. When I leave around 5:00 I see more.
From Wicker Park to Loop 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. and reverse 4:30 p.m. to 5:00. A fair number of cyclists at both times
Ukrainian Village via lakeview to the south side of the loop between 7-8 and 5-6
I leave home no later than 6:30 AM to be in the loop by 7. It's my first winter commuting and I have been pleasantly surprised to see at least 2 or 3 riders every morning on my way down Clark from Uptown.
Leave Berwyn @ 8:30 a.m.
Leave North Park @ 6:00 p.m.
Any time before 11am to go east on Washington through the West Side. Any time after 6pm to return along Grand/Armitage.
Logan Square -> River North around 8 am; reverse around 6 pm.
bucktown to river north. I'm on the road by 6:20am, ride back at 4:00. I usually see 1 or two other bikes in the morning, many more in the afternoon
Bucktown to the Loop between 8:45 - 9:15 and home between 4:45 and 5:15. Fair number of cyclists both ways but heavier in the evening. If I leave even 10 minutes earlier in the morning there is a lot more people on the road.
I bike east on Diversey to the path, then down to 11th and back up to Michigan and Harrison.
I usually leave home around 8:30-45, and get to work around 9-9:15. I leave work around 5-5:30 most days.
