Chicago’s bike share system, Divvy, features thousands of bikes at hundreds of stations from the Southside’s Hyde Park to the far Northside’s Andersonville (and soon to be beyond). If you’re hoping to tour Chicago’s Lake Shore path, or want a more scenic way to travel through the city, Divvy bikes are worth your consideration. These bikes are available for rent 24/7, 365 days a year — rain, snow or sunshine.
To rent a bike, head to a Divvy station, which features a payment kiosk, station map, and docking system (please note that riders must be 16 years or older). Riders will get unlimited 30 minute trips, or they can pay for up to 24 hours of riding. Once you’re done, the bikes can be returned to any station — and you can repeat as many times as you’d like during your rent period. While helmets aren’t required, they are strongly recommended.
