Will do it again!

The weather cooperated beautifully. Our guide was friendly and helpful. Great beer, great food stops, 15 miles of riding and seeing sights. Would’ve preferred a smaller group (16 of us on this trip) and headphones to listen to instructions along the way. I would do it again though. Bike seat was comfortable.

I came into town with father for a weekend and had a great biking experience with Brooke. Food along the way was delicious. The bike ride was long but the views of the city were better than any experience you may have walking or in the car.

Seeing and tasting Chicago

Riding around with our guide, Nicky, and the rest of the group was one of my Chicago trip highlights. We were able to see a pretty decent amount of the city (none of the stops were in the loop) while riding around at a comfortable pace. We also got to try some of the food and beer that Chicago is known for. Overall, great experience.

The most memorable part of the tour was the surplus of facts and history and spontaneous extra stops that tailored to our experience. Teddy and his evaluater were very warm and inviting during the entire tour and surprised us with stops at the pedway popcorn shop and The Picasso along with other art as well. Both of their hospitality and attention to detail radiated throughout our experience and made it more memorable than any other tour we've been on. Thank you!!

This was such a great tour! The bike ride portion was way easier than expected and we got to see so much of the city. I’ve been to Chicago plenty of times but it was a new side I hadn’t experienced yet. I highly recommend and our tour guide Kevin was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and made the tour a lot of fun!

Fun day date, seeing the city in a different light. Saw sites that we have never seen and learned the history behind our stops. Very fun, relaxing and a cool afternoon. Would definitely recommend and we can’t wait to go back. Great for families too.

Great Use of Four Hours!

Gabe was our tour guide and he was very personable and inclusive in his interaction with those of us in the group. He was also good about making sure the group stayed together throughout the ride. The food options were good and exposed me to a different option for Chicago style pizza. The bike ride and the return route via the bike trail alongside Lake Michigan was amazing. I didn't want to leave. BTW - My last non-stationary bike ride was over a decade ago, but it didn't take long to get back comfortable on two wheels. So, don't let the last time you were on a bike keep you from participating on this tour. It's a four hour ride, but the time between riding and stopping (to eat and sightsee) is well balanced, which takes away the feeling of doing too much of one or the other. This is probably obvious, but worth noting is that this tour is in non-congested locations, which is great, but if you are expecting to see city landmarks, you will need to supplement this tour with another. Also, if you take this tour, unless something changes, you can rent one of the bikes from them at a discounted rate.

The Best Bike and Food Tour EVER!!

Bikes are sturdy and comfortable to ride. They have a little pouch on the front to hold keys, water bottle, and phone. The neighborhoods we rode through were so cool with old and new architecture. The pizza and hot dogs were great! The pastry shop where we stopped for brownies was disappointing because they were prepackaged and dry... All of the scenic stops were fantastic whether it was the park, Wrigley Field, or the lake front. Lots of great picture opportunities. The lake front ride was really busy, but it was a beautiful day. Our host, James, was upbeat, professional, and was knowledgeable about the sites we visited.
