Bike Trails of Hyde Park

The 63rd St. Beach from Casino Pier

Over the years, the bike paths along the lake front have been steadily improving, and by the summer of 2005, there are miles of trails to follow and underpasses for the Drive. Here are some of my favorite routes and trail views. I love my bike!

From the Point, you can get a great view of Chicago's skyline.
