Need South Bend to Chicago
« on: April 30, 2009, 09:52:53 am »
Am planning a trip around Lake Michigan.  How do we get from South Bend to Chicago.  Safety is the main concern, want to avoid both traffic and crime danger.  Would consider public transportation if bikes are carried, if there is no other way.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You could contact the IN and IL state bike/ped coordinators to see if they have any suggestions. I know that IL has state bike maps available here: And here's a link to Indiana:

Good luck, and let us know how it goes!

Thanks for the suggestions and maps.  The Michiana Map looks very promising.  We plan to post the journal on CGoaB.
