Overview
Chicago offers amazing historical and culinary adventures, and this bike and food tour allows you to experience both while leaving the navigation to a guide. Hop on a provided bike and pedal around 13 miles (21 kilometers) at a moderate pace through Lincoln Park, Gold Coast, Wrigleyville, and Old Town, stopping along the way to refuel at hidden gems for Chicago-style pizza, hot dogs, cupcakes, and beer.

Highlights
  • Bike around Chicago without worrying about equipment or navigation 
  • Steer clear of tourist traps with a guide 
  • Learn about the city's culinary history through commentary 
  • Visit neighborhoods that many city visitors don't get to
What to Expect
Meet at the tour’s bike-shop departure location along Lake Shore Drive, where you’ll listen to a safety briefing and get set up with a properly sized bike and helmet. Pedal through local neighborhoods, leaving the navigation and planning to your guide. Just follow along for the roughly 13-mile (21-kilometer) ride through Wrigleyville, Old Town, Lincoln Park, and Gold Coast, enjoying the scenery and refueling with intermittent tastings at some of the city's best food spots. Learn what makes Chicago deep-dish pizza special, why you’ll get dirty looks if you ask for ketchup with your hot dog, and where to find the best local craft brews. Learn about the history of each neighborhood, and finish with a cupcake at one of the city’s best bakeries. Your guide will be happy to provide you with more suggestions on where to eat and drink in Chicago during the remainder of your stay.

We were a family of five adults who did this tour on Saturday. We had James as our guide and he was great! There was tons of food and the riding was pleasant and not difficult at all. Chose (Family -- teens), but they are all in their 20s -- did not give that option!
