"Starting last week or so, those buffered lanes extend west of Halsted past UIC!   Not that it matters much.  Eastbound Harrison has to be the most often parked-in bike lane in the city."

Map of Downtown Bike Lanes, Divvy - Is This Accurate?

I don't know all of the downtown streets as well as many of you daily downtown commuters and I am hoping to figure out how accurate the map is...Are there any bike lanes missing from the city bike map of downtown? It was created in 2016 so if anything new was added afterwards, it won't be on this map. Also, any other considerations? Construction, etc. that would impact riding around the Loop on a bike? Thanks!!…See More
