Description

Once again, I am offering a free mini-tour of one of the downtown communities as part of Chicago’s Bike To Work Week in partnership with the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events.  This year, we will explore the Near North Side, just north of the city’s central business district, the Loop.  The Near North Side is Chicago Community Area #8.  It is home to many of the city’s most famous buildings, cultural institutions, neighborhoods and historical figures.  The tour will offer riders a two-hour spin through the Magnificent Mile, the Gold Coast, Streeterville, River North, Old Town, SoNo, and Goose Island.  We will visit dozens of city and national landmarks and discuss and learn about buildings from the likes of Dwight Perkins, Holabird and Roche, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Adler and Sullivan, John Welbourn Root, Daniel Burnham, Henry Ives Cobb, Marshall and Fox, Howard Van Doren Shaw, Fugard and Knapp, Joseph Lyman Silsbee, Schmidt, Garden and Martin, Alfred Ahlschuler and scores of other legendary architects.  All for free after work. 

Limited to 150 participants.  You must wear a helmet and register here:

Sorry all, the city has deemed the pending weather too dangerous to do the tour.  The ride is off...come out Friday for the Night Tour instead.

Cheers - Lee
