Tour of West Town 2017 at Humboldt Park

November 4, 2017 from 11am to 3pm
West Town, Community Area #24 sits 3 miles northwest of The Loop. In addition to the namesake neighborhood of West Town, the Community Area also contains neighborhoods like Wicker Park, Noble Square, part of Humboldt Park and Ukrainian Village amongst others.  The built environment in West Town is second to none and the challenge of a tour such as this is drilling down to the essentials when there are so many splendid examples of things to see and a good supply of parks, murals and neighborhood…See More

Tour of Logan Square 2017 at Illinois Centenial Monument

May 13, 2017 from 11am to 3pm
Logan Square, Community Area no. 22 is located 5 miles from the loop on Chicago’s near Northwest side. Logan Square is home to exquisite mansions along its historic boulevards with side-streets lined with simple workers’ homes and 2-flats. It is host to homey dive bars and haute cuisine hot spots. A particularly funky strip of Milwaukee forms its main commercial district, immediately adjacent to its quiet tree- lined residential streets. Exhibiting a wide variety of styles and a host of…See More

Liar's Ride 2017 is cancelled. Not a joke.

Hey gang,It really sucks to announce this but I have to cancel the Liar’s Ride this Saturday.  I injured my shoulder and while I haven’t been able to see a doctor yet, that is on the agenda for this afternoon and for sure I will be unable to ride by Saturday as I can’t even put a little pressure on the handlebars for my right side. I looked into doing the ride with a Pedicab, but logistically and sensibly, it was not to be.I am very sorry for this and I hope I will be up and at ’em for May’s…See More

No worries Papa! ;-) Had a great time! ;-)

Hi Lee, that message disappeared when I accepted the friend request. Sounds like perhaps you saw the Schwinn on CL? With the long Shimano brake. That thing worked really well. I'd give up a lot to be able to get more of them.

Great Ride and thanks for the after party at Janiks! ;-) Great stuff! ;-)

Lee, things are good. I hope to make it out this Sat., and may be driving (time constraints on the evening) from Bucktown?WP nbrhd. If anyone needs a ride (with or without their bike) please put him/her/them in touch with me.

I figured that group was a good place for it...

Something about that guy annoys me.

Lee, you set the bar. Your preparedness is perfect and your tours worth paying for.

All of the homes (except 1 or 2) S. Millard between Ogden and 16th have Romanesque pillars on their porches and almost all have extensive carved and/or molded decorations on their greystone fronts. I've seen similar homes here and there in Lawndale and other parts of the South side, but I haven't noticed so many very similar homes in a two block stretch anywhere else on the south side.

Hi, Lee! I didn't even see your wall post till now. Thanks for saying hey. Jerry has been limiting his cycling distances since he was hobbled by chronic tendinitis in his hamstring, and I've been racing this summer, so we haven't had time to get to any of the neighborhood tours. Ironically enough, once the weather gets crappy we'll probably start getting out more on organized rides.
