Bobby’s Bike and Hike was a fun 3 hour tour of some areas in Chicago. As with most travel experiences, there were a wide variety of sites to see. Part of the time we traveled on the main roads in Chicago, which wasn’t a problem because there were 20 riders and we whizzed through stops signs! We only covered 8 miles…but cycled through the neighborhoods of the Gold Coast and Old Town. The Gold Coast got its name because the homes are very expensive. Many of them have been converted into condos. We rode past the original “Playboy Mansion”, but Hugh decided that the cold Chicago winters didn’t work with women in bikinis! I checked Tripadvisor for some of the most popular tours and this was listed as #1.
We learned some interesting facts about Chicago, but if I had it to do over again…I probably would have preferred just renting a bicycle and gone at my own speed…which is faster…and also would have been able to stop where I wanted to take photographs. We stopped at the free Zoo and this gentleman was playing the violin!
There was a stop at the Contemporary Arts Museum…
We rode through Lincoln Park…
I’ve never seen a mailbox with a flower basket attached!
We rode along Lake Michigan and there were lots of people playing volleyball, sunbathing, walking, jogging and bicycling.
I also booked an “Architectural Foundation” boat ride for later in the afternoon…but I’ll save that for tomorrow!
Hope your having a great day!!
