The Historic Hyde Park & Kenwood Mansion Tour is perfect for moderate to advanced riders, covering 24 miles in 4 hours.

Tucked along the Southside lakefront, Hyde Park is one of Chicago's most intriguing neighborhoods. It's home to Jackson Park, the Japanese Gardens, the Museum of Science & Industry, and Hyde Park was also the original site of the Columbian Exposition of 1893.

You'll ride through the University of Chicago campus with stops at the Rockefeller Chapel, the Nuclear Sculpture, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House. Plus, you'll ride past some of Chicago's most famous residences, including those of Louis Farrakhan, Muhammad Ali, and President Barack Obama.

TESTIMONIALS:

"We have just returned back to California today from our cross-country bus trip and when each child (and adult) was asked to name which day rated the highest, you came out on top! We had a tour of the White House, went to the Iowa State Fair, hiked the Grand Canyon and saw Old Faithful, and you won! We will definitely recommend you to anyone traveling to Chicago. Thanks again!" -- Doreen, California

"When my wife and I spent a very pleasant weekend in Chicago, a true highlight of this wonderful city was a memorable afternoon with your Bike Tour. The scenery was beautiful, the guide knowledgeable and entertaining, the bike was easy yet refreshing, and it was the most efficient and relaxing way to see the incredible sights of one of America's truly amazing cities." "...would be on my "must-do" list of things to experience in Chicago." -- Mike Huckabee, Governor of Arkansas

"To be honest, bro, I wasn't so keen on doing a tour of my own city but it came highly recommended and we gave it a go. It was a great tour! I've never seen a lot of the places we went to and it didn't feel touristy, if that is even a word. Now I know more about the city I grew up in. We enjoyed the guide, route, and cool people. I'll be back for the night tour, for sure. Thanks!" Brad, Real World San Diego

"I am writing to let you know that my girlfriends went on your tour during a getaway weekend to Chicago. It was wonderful. Your guide, Tom, was very funny. We all loved him and he had all the answers to our questions. Thank you and we will be back next time in Chicago." Sara, Phoenix

"I went on your tour on a work event and we had an amazing time." Pahkie, Chicago
