Milwaukee Avenue & Elston Avenue

CYCLE CHICAGO, ROAD RIDE, MILWAUKEE AVENUE & ELSTON AVENUE This is one of Chicago's gritty urban rides that show how industrial districts in Chicago are developing into residential and shopping areas. Bikes make up a significant part of Milwaukee Avenue’s new identity. Nowhere in the city (except on the Lakefront) will you see more bikes. By one recent count, one-third of passing vehicles at Milwaukee and North avenues during rush hour were bicycles. This stretch of bike heaven offers not only safety in numbers but inspiration for the potential of urban biking. FOOD AND DRINK An enormous number of eateries and drinking establishments. ACCESS By bus take the CTA Blue Line and bike two blocks southeast to start. Several CTA buses will get you there, in particular #56 Milwaukee, #65 Grand and #8 Halsted. By car, exit Interstate 90/94 at Ohio, turn right on Des Plaines Street and drive three blocks south.
