We're going to Chicago this weekend! Despite a 50% chance of rain (BOO) I am determined to have an awesome time. We will be staying in Wicker Park and plan to rely mainly on bikes and the L to get around. We aim to eat, shop and explore. Where do we start? [more inside]

I recently started working from home, so I no longer have my daily bike commute to the office. Looking for some advice on the following:
- Ideal time(s) of day for a nice distance ride with less traffic.
- Good routes for a distance ride in Chicago.
- Good destination points. Perhaps a nice place to work with a laptop(bonus for free Wi-Fi connections). Also, I tend to like independent cafes/restaurants rather than places like Cosi or Starbucks.
- Any other thoughts/advice you have.
I'm flexible with distance, though I'd prefer 5+ miles. I'm starting out from my apartment in Humboldt Park if that helps any.

[ChicagoFilter] I am going to attempt to bike to work, which means biking along the lake from Andersonville to the Navy Pier area. Any tips? I haven't biked in 10 years, and don't want to be killed by racing pros. [more inside]
