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. On the day tour, ride through Wrigleyville, Old Town, Lincoln Park, and Gold Coast. On the night tour, visit Gold Coast, Chicago’s Riverwalk, Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain and Chicago’s Lakefront Trail. 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. Both the 11:30 am and 5:30 pm tours include healthy portions of Deep Dish pizza, Chicago hot dogs, locally crafted beers, and dessert to top things off.

First, let me say that Julia our guide was beyond fabulous. The bikes we rode on we’re absolutely fabulous if you want to E bike make sure you reserve it early. She gave us a complete history of the city of which I knew nothing about and made a 14 mile ride fun, interesting and a total blast and certainly the highlight of my trip to Chicagoland. The stops on the ride were wonderful and we ate and drank, ate again, ate again, drank again till we couldn’t eat anymore. I would have paid double for this bike ride and that still would not have been enough. Thank you Julia for being such an ambassador to your city and Giving us such wonderful equipment to ride on. Bobbys Bikes & company delivers seven star service with the itinerary, the equipment and our incredible guide Julia! Jac Smith Keller Williams St Pete And Tampa, Florida.

First off, Bobby’s was kind enough to allow us to move our reservation back nearly 3 months from July to October when our flight was unexpectedly canceled last minute over the summer. Amazing customer service!

Secondly, the TOUR WAS TOP NOTCH! The weather was windy, cold and rainy and that made the tour more unique and special! We rode on wonderful bikes for 14 miles through the streets of downtown Chicago and finished with 45 minutes along Lake Michigan while the water was crashing into the bank like crazy… made for amazing views!

Well-organized and safe, we had a slice of Chicago deep dish pizza and then a local beer, award-winning cupcake and a Chicago-style hotdog and finally a few local beers.

4 hours of memories, well worth the cost for the experience! Julia was a terrific guide!!

This is a must do while visiting in downtown Chicago. We were able to see parts of Chicago neighbor hoods and ride along the waterfront of Lake Michigan . If you don’t want to drive around or take cab services all the time, this is the way to see some of Chicago , and next day you can rent one of their bikes at a very discounted rate if you have taken the tour, then ride all day yourselves!

I had a wonderful time. All my worries about riding in traffic on city streets came to nothing. Our guide, Thomas, kept us in a pack, safely navigating the route through all kinds of residential, downtown, and bike trail traffic. I felt really good the whole way!

We are 4 friends that booked this tour to see Chicago from a different perspective than walking or a bus. We did not go on this tour expecting anything special but it turned out to be insanely fun, both due to Chicago being a fun city to visit but not least because of our tour guides, Julia and Josie, they are a bundle of fun and made us all really enjoy the 4 plus hours the tour takes. Insidentaly they are both aspiring actors/singers and very talented so you just might be taking a tour with future stars.
If you take this tour ask for them to guide you :)

What a great way to experience Chicago and all it has to offer !!! We loved biking around the city, visiting the local eateries and learning a bit of history. Pizza, cupcakes, hot dogs and beer, oh my !!! My only critique would be to make it four stops rather than five. We felt a bit rushed at the last bar. The other four places we stopped, we had a chance to sit and talk with our guide, Nate, and to others on the tour. But with the last bar stop, we were crowded into a small dark bar and did not have enough time to really enjoy our beverages. I would still highly recommend this tour. It was one of my favorites from our week long adventure in Chicago.

This was an absolutely fantastic tour! We went on a 13 mile bike ride around Chicago and stopped at 4 different establishments plus a few unique places. We also rode through many different neighborhoods, so we were able to get a good feel of what Chicago is like. Everything is included in the price, so you don't have to worry about paying for any of the food/drinks on the tour.

Julia (our guide) did a fantastic job going over easy-to-remember safety guidelines that helped us ride on the busy Chicago roads safely without being worried. She was extremely friendly and engaging to every single person on the tour, so we all felt like a real part of the tour. Even after herding us around for 13 miles and 4 hours, Julia still had endless energy at the end of the tour.

Had an awesome time on our tour. Gabe was our guide and was very knowledge and enthusiastic. He did a great job of reading the crowd on the tour in his delivery of everything. The portion sizes for food and drinks were good and met our expectations. As a bonus got a chance to jump in the lake for those interested

We had a fantastic time! Gabe was a brilliant guide and I felt safe throughout, despite my anxiety of cycling on the road. I was able to enjoy myself and my husband (an avid cyclist) had fun, too. The food was delicious and the pace was perfect - we got to see so much of the city and had ample time to take photos. We would recommend to anyone!

This was the tour I was looking forward to and it didn’t disappoint. Great way to see the City with Joe our super friendly and informative guide and you also sample the signature dishes of Chicago food. From deep dish pizza, hot dog and cheesecake through craft beers. 4 hours of great fun at a nice leisurely pace. You’ll love it.
