Bicycling west to east on the Bloomingdale Trail from Steven Vance on Vimeo.

The 606 trail has only been open for a few days, but the first-person hyperlapse videos of people riding along the full length of the former rail line are already making their way to the internet. Steven Vance of Streetsblog Chicago and Chicago Cityscape took his camera along for a tour of the 2.7 mile long trail and compressed the entire journey down to just four minutes. Youtuber Paul Smith also brought a camera along on a bike ride and created a video that clocks in at one and a half minutes. While the trail does look like it was at full capacity during its grand opening over the weekend, these videos do reveal that there is enough room for pedestrians and cyclists to coexist.
