The weather's warming up this week, so here's a few things to get your bike groove on.

  1. Critical Mass is this Friday. Celebrate the end of winter with a nice, leisurely neighborhood ride. 5:30pm, Daley Plaza.
  2. Looking for a longer ride? This list of all rides in Illinois gives you a chance to keep in shape and get out and see some of that countryside us city dwellers hear so much about.
  3. If you're looking for more intense, training style rides, check out some of the offerings of Chicago Cycling Club.
  4. If you want to see the latest in cycling stuff, check out the Chicago Bike Show happening this weekend at Navy Pier.
  5. Need a map of how to get around? Where to go? The City's Bike Page has an online bike map of Chicago that shows where the bike paths are and what streets are best to take if you can't find a path.
