First, please ignore the one star reviews that say "it isn't clear I have to return the bike in 30 minutes". It's right there on the machine when you dip your card in, so there' s no "scam" going on, just folks who don't take...More

Loved the concept of this! Being able to cycle from place to place and return your bike so no worrying about locking it to anything. This was great as visiting from the UK means we obviously couldn't bring our own bikes! The bikes were heavy...More

The $9.95 day pass is a good deal, but be prepared to switch bikes every half hour...not a second more. As a frustrated reviewer noted, you will be billed. However, quite fun to ride along the lake, get to the museums and the Navy Pier,...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
