Chicago Bike Guide

By Steven Vance

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The Chicago Bike Guide is the best way to navigate Chicago's vast network of bikeways and cool destinations.

* Get trip directions
* Find available Divvy bikes and docks
* Read what other cyclists are posting on The Chainlink, Tumblr, Instagram, Flickr, and Twitter
* Get notices of important events, news, and street conditions

You can design your own route, get a suggested route, or discover new ways to get from A to B on streets with bikeways or on trails. Find the nearest Divvy bike sharing station.

Get directions from your location to any of the embedded points of interest, trailheads, recommended burrito joints, and train and bus stations (Amtrak, Greyhound, and Megabus). With a link to ETAChicago, see when buses and trains are arriving at your current location or any of the points of interest, including at all train and bus stations. Find any point of interest, venue, or restaurant with Foursquare.

The map shows you all area off-street trails, every type of bike lane, streets with sharrows, and the slow service drives lining each boulevard. Trails included are:

-Burnham Greenway
-Des Plaines River Trail
-Illinois Prairie Path
-Chicago Lakefront Trail
-Evanston Lakefront Trail
-Major Taylor Trail
-North Branch Trail
-North Shore Channel Trail
-Sauganash Trail

Customer Reviews

Not all that

What this app got right is the ability to turn off features such as the Divy locations. I like being able to see where CTA locations are.

What is wrong is everything else, from the main screen when the app opens to how it functions. There is so much clutter; who needs another weather app and all the other stuff at the bottom of the screen? The main reason I bought this app is to know which streets have bike lanes, to be able to pull them up at a moments notice when I’m out and about. The map font is too small, the colors don’t make it easier to read and the refresh rate is slow.

The measure of an app is whether you will use it in the real world. I’ve already removed it from my device.
