"Once you get south of the Lincoln Park Boat Club (so. of Fullerton), switch to the limestone path closer to the lagoon. The paved path there is terrible. When you get near the south end of the lagoon, I think this is the best route to get back to…"

"Barricades were up this morning. At the Diversey bridge (btw, exiting at Barry is much better) and at the North Ave Beach tunnel. Looks like they want people to use the tunnel at NAB, rather than the sidewalk alongside LaSalle. They had a barricade…"

"Crushed limestone I think. Easy to ride on, even with thin tires. YMMV in the rain though"

"I took the detour today even thought they hadn't blocked it off yet. Its not bad at all. Coming from the north, I exited through the Barry underpass and took both paved and gravel paths to North Ave. The paved path south of the Fullerton…"
JeffB replied to Yasmeen's discussion What Are Your Favorite Chicago-Area Bike Lanes, Paths & Routes?
"Lights at Diversey, Belmont, Addison and Grace/Lincoln. Four way stops at other intersections. North of Grace, Leavitt is another good alternative to Damen, as long as you're heading north. Otherwise, use Ravenswood."

"I've never felt that way. Maybe I've just inured myself to it, but other than the recent spots of construction its not bad. A good alternative north of Diversey is Wolcott. Relatively wide neighborhood street. I used to use it more often…"

"For my Ravenswood to Loop commute, I like to take Leland as the route to the LFP. You have to turn on Sheridan and finish up on Wilson, but its relatively low traffic and calm. I remember hearing something about making it a greenway, but I think its…"

JeffB replied to Andy J (9.2 miles)'s discussion Advice Please: McDonald's Cycle Center to Lakefront Path
"I like this route too. Just make sure to test your rental's brakes before taking the hill on Field Blvd too fast. Its one short, steep block down and then a hard right turn. The parking garage entrance is just after your first left. I usually…"

JeffB replied to Stephen P.'s discussion Can cars use a bike lane to parallel park?
"No idea on the law, by my opinion would be Yes they can use the bike lane for the maneuver. It should be a temporary obstruction. I think it falls under the category of Share the Road, which goes both ways."
