Gary Indiana Architecture Preservation Cycling Tour
Come ride with us on our next great cycling adventure to Gary Indiana for the cities organized Gary Preservation Tour Event. We will discover the lost architecture that is under way of being preserved. For 1 day only, we will join in on architectural walking tours and go inside many abandon buildings (without even sneaking in) that are being saved. We will also check out Lake Effekt where we will get the opportunity to witness over 60 street artists create amazing street art and urban murals.
