As we finally move into summer weather, Chicagoans can take advantage of exercising outdoors again. While many downtown Chicago apartment buildings offer bike storage for residents, these four buildings have extra advantages. Here are our top picks of the best properties for cyclists:

73 East Lake 

The extensive amenities at this luxury Loop apartment building are seemingly never-ending. From a private penthouse-level dining room for hosting friends to video conference rooms in the business center. Residents can visit the concierge to borrow one of the building’s cruiser bikes and take a ride through Millenium Park or along the lakefront.

L – Logan Square

Every level of bike enthusiast will appreciate the bike amenity space at L, a brand-new building in Logan Square. Cyclists have easy access to the Bike Kitchen, where they can wheel into the building directly off Milwaukee. The space provides personalized bike racks, a washing station, and a work bench area for tune-ups.

Wolf Point West

Out of all the new Chicago apartments delivering in 2016, Wolf Point West might have the most unique location. Perched along the Chicago River where the main branches converge, these River North apartments offers unique access to the growing riverwalk. The bike room is conveniently accessible for residents from within the building and a lower-level entrance on the Riverwalk.

500 Lake Shore Drive

500 Lake Shore Drive’s position along Lake Michigan has many benefits, such as stunning views and quick commutes for residents driving on LSD. Many people choose these Streeterville apartments largely because of the building’s proximity to the water. Access to the lakeshore path is just across the street, so residents can spend time running or biking along the water without having to stress out about navigating through the city.
