Be a part of history and bike with Adventure Cycling Tours through Graceland Cemetery for a one of a kind tour.

Graceland Cemetery was founded in 1860 and is the home of many architects and influential people that help build and shape Chicago. Along with its incredible design and architecture, Graceland Cemetery is also a certified arboretum and the home of vast wildlife. This tour also includes a visit to the Edgewater Historical Society to view the “Made In Chicago” exhibit. Two optional mystery stops to round out the rest of the afternoon will be announced during lunch. Meet at the fully restored Kwanusila Totem Pole along the lake front path then head for our journey to Graceland Cemetery.

Pothole Art Bike Tour

Pothole Art Bike Tour 11/19/2017

A uniquely Chicago urban treasure hunt – by bike! Jim Bachor’s stunning and sometimes snarky mosaic works are the centerpiece of this casual group ride, tracking down each and every existing pothole Jim has lovingly adorned with unique mosaics since 2013. And, the artist will join us! Meetup is inside the Thorndale Red Line Station, where Bachor’s commission, entitled “Thrive,” was installed in 2014. We’ll then ride a winding west to east to south route that catches up with up to 25 pothole artworks, including two private commissions. Please bring cash for a lunch and drinks stop, tentatively scheduled for 1pm, and another possible drink stop along the way.

Steelworkers Pilgrimage Cycling Follow Up Tour 5/21/2017

Steelworkers Pilgrimage Cycling Tour Follow Up 1/2 Day Ride.

Although the tour had a great turnout and was a huge success even with heavy head winds, I felt disappointed that I had to chop off a couple points of interests.

So I decided to offer a FREE follow-up mini-tour for anyone, even if weren’t on the original tour.
