Last weekend I enjoyed a three hour bike ride along the lake. For the first time I went further south, discovering the lake path from downtown to Hyde Park. The scenery, fresh air, and interesting landmarks along the way lifted the weight from the week off my shoulders. I intend to go back once a week and take a photo to capture the season change as it goes through all shades of green to yellow. Here are the seven bike trails around Chicago to enjoy. Go out there and be a kid again. Life is better on two wheels!
