Join Adventure Cycling Tours and pedal through Graceland Cemetery and Rosehill Cemetery for a one of a kind tour and explore the history, architecture, landscaping, nature, and the wildlife. Graceland Cemetery was founded in 1860 and is the home of many architects and influential people that help build and shape Chicago. Along with its incredible design and architecture, Graceland Cemetery is also a certified arboretum and the home of vast wildlife. Rosehill Cemetery is an architectural wonder, the Gatehouse dates back to 1864 and was designed by famed architect William Boyington, who also designed the Chicago Water Tower, one of the city’s most recognizable historical landmarks. In 1975, the castle-like, Castellated Gothic arched entryway became a National Registered Historic Site. This tour also includes a visit to the Edgewater Historical Society. If time permits we will also ride through West Ridge Nature Preserve.

I have a special Adventure Cycling Tours announcement regarding The Historical Cemetery Cycling tour. Thanks to our wonderful friends at The Edgewater Historical Society all registered riders will be receiving a one-year membership to the museum. To kick it off, during our lunch break at First Slice/Empanada Bike we will all participate on a private tour of the museum and the current featured exhibit titled “The Chicago Conspiracy Trial: One Juror’s Ordeal”.

More info on the Museum and featured exhibits can be found here:…/new-exhibit-opens-sunday-…
