Adaptive cycling on the Chicago Lakefront Trail
While July is known for its hot weather in Chicago, June shines with sunny days, making it the perfect month to fully enjoy the Lakefront Trail. Take advantage of this time to explore the winding 18-mile path that runs alongside the shores of majestic Lake Michigan on the city’s east side. The views are simply spectacular. These separated trails for pedestrians and cyclists come alive every day with a symphony of activity. Everyone finds their place here, from those heading to work with determination to adventurous tourists. It is possible to navigate these trails in a wheelchair or handbike.
