City cycling is an under-rated vacation activity. Cycling is not often considered when thinking about the next vacation yet there are some terrific cycle trips to be had. Cycling trips don’t always have to be out in gorgeous countryside, up hill and down dale; city cycling trips are a great way to get about some fascinating places and see all the key sights of your destination. Plus, you get the added benefit of getting some good healthy exercise as well as having a good time. The USA has some marvelous destinations and here is my pick of 7 American Cities for a Great Cycle Trip:
1. Chicago, IL
With 141 miles of marked lanes on Chicago’s roads, a cycling trip is a great way to see the Windy City. There’s also 12,000 public bike racks in this bike-friendly metropolis meaning you can leisurely make your way from sight to site and park your bake somewhere safe when you want to visit a particular attraction. Try the classic ride between the parks along Lake Michigan’s shores or tackle the 32-mile Fox River Trail.
