Led by Lee Diamond of Chicago Neighborhood Bike Tours, join us for a free 2-hour mini-bike tour of the Loop. After work, grab your bike and pedal over to Buckingham Fountain to learn about some of Chicago's most notable historical landmarks and districts.


The tour will feature a 6 mile trek with narrated stops about the Downtown section of Chicago known as the Loop. Community Area #32, The Loop is bordered by Lake Michigan on the east, by the Chicago River on the north and west and by Roosevelt Road on the south, and within this small area exists dozens of national and city landmarks, and canyons of skyscrapers, set on top of double and triple leveled streets, intersected and sharing space with el trains. It is the seat of government for the city of Chicago and Cook County.


Ride limited to 150 participants. Pre-registration is required.

Hey Lee - you still need a few volunteers?

Just Will - city of Chicago just corrected their website and auto reply.  They also sent out an email to all attendees to clarify.  Sorry for the confusion!

Jim - Yes sorry - it is a poster from last year.  I completely see why that would confuse you, but amazingly enough, I always show old posters of the rides and you are the first person to ever mention that because I think it is the first time the dates were so similar, just different years.  Anyway, that is the poster from last year.  No new posters for rides that have one already.
