For the shortest walk, exit at the Sedgwick CTA Station. If you need to transfer to the brown or purple line, several stations in the Loop have free transfers including the Clark/Lake Station (use Google Maps for specific transit directions from your starting location). Once at Segwick, turn left at street level and right at the first intersection on North Avenue and walk about two blocks.
From the red line, exit at Clark/Division and walk north on N. Clark Street toward Dunkin Donuts.
A Divvy bike docking station is in front of the Chicago History Museum on N. Clark Street. The Lakefront Trail is close by as an easy commute option. Get off the trail near Castaways and the North Avenue Beach parking lot (follow the trail spur toward Lakeshore Drive).
Bikes are also just north of the Sedgwick CTA Station and near the Clark/Division Station on N. Wells Street if you don’t want to walk.
