Establish a trail circuit to permit a long recreational or fitness bike ride in Chicago.

Strategy 1.2.4 Details

Chapter 1Bikeway Network: "Bikeways" are streets and trails specifically designed for bicycle travel. Bikeways help bicyclists feel comfortable riding, whether on streets with heavy motor-vehicle traffic or on off-street trails. Surveys consistently indicate that providing bikeways is the most effective way to encourage bicycling.
Objective 2Establish new trails, improve existing trails, and improve access to trails.

Strategy 4

Establish a trail circuit to permit a long recreational or fitness bike ride in Chicago.

Enable cyclists to have a long bike ride without having to leave the city, by connecting existing trails and, where necessary, using streets. Connect to trails in adjacent municipalities.

Peformance MeasureEstablish a minimum 50-mile Chicago trail circuit by 2008; relocate the street routes to new trails as they are completed.
