Downtown Chicago riding, Yay or Nay??

Just curious what other riders thought....
I personally like riding in the city, love seeing the city at night from my bike, but it's definitely a debatable topic amongst my friends who ride... Share your thoughts.

When you ride? I love riding in the city when I can.

Re: Downtown Chicago riding, Yay or Nay??

I like to ride downtown and explore the city whenever I can, I typically like to go after work, around 8 or 9pm so some of the daily bullshit 9-5 traffic is all gone... My dilemma is typically that I have one friend who usually is down to go, but he's got a messed up swing shift schedule so that screws riding sometime. I'm always down to find new people to ride with. What area are you in?

That's understandable, I'm typically off weekends too, unless I'm DJing somewhere. Maybe we should do some riding this weekend then?

Riding downtown is fun at night, but not so much if you have to take the highway to get there. Lots of folks dying on the highway trip to Chicago after dark this season.
