I am excited to partner with the Chicago Historic Bungalow Association in our bike Tour of Albany Park. Community Area #14, Albany Park sits 8 miles northwest of the Loop. Join us on a historical and architectural tour of the community to discover how it grew from rural farmland into a vibrant, urban neighborhood of sturdy brick Chicago bungalows that today is one of the most diverse in the United States. A ride through the streets and neighborhoods of Albany Park will also reveal exciting and unique commercial districts and well-planned and plentiful green space. This tour will be at a leisurely pace with frequent stops and break for refreshments after about 2 hours – cyclists can leave after the break or continue on the tour as they wish.
