Best city bike tour!!! - Perfectly paced tour around the city in great neighbourhoods tasting Chicago’s, finest Pizza and dogs and beer! Jeff was full of facts and stories, and was conscious of our safety at all times. The ride back along the Lakeshore to the shop was breathtaking. We got caught in a thunderstorm, but it was perfect timing and sat in the pub until it cleared which wasn’t too long, but Jeff had ponchos for us if we wanted them I would highly recommend this for anyone.

Must tour when in Chicago! - Greg our tour guide was great and so was Bobby’s Bike Hike staff. He explained the history or each location and the fun facts about the food we were trying. He also discussed the history and characteristics of each neighborhood and how they blend into the history of Chicago as a city. The biking was easy paced and relatively flat. Totally recommend the tour.

Biking, eating, drinking and more! - We really enjoyed this tour. It was a good all encompassing adventure. It is great exercise, good Chicago food sampling, beer tasting of local craft breweries, history lesson and good discussion. Gabe was a great tour guide. He was very personable and was a great mix of facts and just talking to a local and enjoying the conversation. One of our favorite parts was riding through some of the neighborhoods and just seeing the architecture. Meeting place is well marked and easy to find. Would highly recommend.
