"Yep, this is the best available route out of a basket of few and terrible choices. As a northwest suburban resident, Franklin has been what I've used to cross the nearly impenetrable I-294/Des Plaines River barrier into the city. I've only…"

"You can't take your bike with you on the Blue Line from 7-9 AM, but as a reverse commuter you can put your bike on Metra outbound. And without your bike, you're limited to what you can walk to during lunch (enjoy McDonalds lol) "

Wolf-Pup replied to Wolf-Pup's discussion (relatively) Safe cycling route to Elk Grove Village?
"Folks thank you for the advice. I might try this out another day. But I even consulted with Wostyntje and he doesn't seem to keen on biking out that way during rush hour. He did mention the Itasca station but with the extra time it would…"

"Franklin West of Mannheim is only one lane each way with a very narrow shoulder until you get to Bensenville. Traffic is light, but much of it is trucks since this is an industrial area. Drivers seem to behave OK. This is a better option on…"

Jared replied to Wolf-Pup's discussion (relatively) Safe cycling route to Elk Grove Village?
"it looks like there is a Franklin Ave which runs near the Metra tracks starting in Franklin Park.  You would need to take Diversey or Belmont out to Cumberland to catch it.  Seems better than Irving Park Rd or Touhy which is what Google is…"

Shawn Evans replied to Wolf-Pup's discussion (relatively) Safe cycling route to Elk Grove Village?
"There isn't any good way to get there by bike, due to all of the traffic around O'Hare. The best way is to ride to the Western Ave station of Metra (420 N Artesian) and take the Milwaukee West train at 7:21 AM, arrive in Itasca at 7:53 AM,…"

"Take the train to Wood Dale.  Shouldn't be too bad of a ride there.  Looks like you can mostly use side streets."
