It is that time of year again, Chicago! The weather is starting to warm up which means that it’s time for everyone to start enjoying the great outdoors and beautiful scenery. There is no better way to enjoy all the sights that Navy Pier has than on a bicycle! So, let your hair down or take off those hats and let the breeze flow through your hair!
Bike and Roll at Navy Pier has bikes and skates to rent by the hour, day or week. It is the best way to tour Chicago – from its neighborhoods to a leisurely jaunt along the Lakefront Bike Path – and get some exercise, too. Everyone has the option to go on their own, or join a guided tour! The tours begin on Memorial Day from Navy Pier at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 7p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays. There are group discounts are available. All bikes include locks, maps, helmets and safety gear.
There are a variety of tours available. There is the Amazing Lakefront Chicago Bike Tour. It is a tour along the lakefront that shows off all the great sights that include Lakefront Trail & Beaches, Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Lincoln Park Zoo and much more. This is one to truly let the breeze hit your face as you ride (once you pedal into the wind, you’ll know what we mean).
The title speaks for itself; you will bike through the Gold Coast, Old Town and Lincoln Park neighborhoods while making stops at various historical spots along the way. Then there is the most popular, Bikes @ Night Bicycle Tour. This tour delves into the nightlife scene of Chicago and concludes with a prime vantage point of the Navy Pier fireworks display! There is nothing like seeing Chicago and its night-time lights.
Make sure to put this on your to-do list this summer. This is an experience to be had!
