Overview
Taste all of Chicago’s classic eats on this four-hour guided bicycle tour! Join the expert tour guides of Bobby’s Bike Hike, America’s longest-running city bicycle tour company, on this exciting and informative adventure. The journey is 14 miles in total (traversed at a nice leisurely pace) and includes a slice of deep dish pizza, a gourmet cupcake, a Chicago-style hot dog, and a few samples of Chicago’s legendary craft beer! Between food and beverage stops, you’ll get to drink in the sights of Chicago’s beautiful north side neighborhoods, including the historic Wrigleyville district, home to our intrepid Chicago Cubs baseball team (and their fiercely loyal fans). Then you’ll get a chance to cruise the Lakefront Trail, one of the most popular waterfront bike paths in the country. Don’t miss out on this rip-roaring good time! You’ll leave with a profound understanding of our town, even if you only came for the 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.

Omar and Gabe, two very humorous guides, took us through the northern suburbs of Chicago with lots of interesting stories and stops enroute. Interesting food and drinks related to Chicago; got to learn quite a bit about that.
