Bike and Roll Chicago outfits sightseers with motorized segways and old-fashioned cycles so they can traverse the paved surfaces of the city. Chicago Segways at Sunset groups set sail from Millennium Park as dusk emerges, rolling through Grant Park as the gyroscopically engineered vehicles carry tourists to the lakefront to glimpse the skyline view in full, ensconced by water-born breezes and cloud-born fishermen casting out their lines for trout, perch, and amphibious Chicago-style hot dogs. Rolling south along the lake, pairs soak in unparalleled views of Soldier Field, Shedd Aquarium, and the Field Museum, all softly illuminated by the sun’s slow descent behind the legendary Windy City skyline. Bike and Roll Chicago strongly recommends that riders wear closed-toe athletic shoes to ensure comfort and protect them from sentient segways that are jealous of toes.
Alternatively, patrons can opt for the power of self-propulsion with half-day bike rentals and choose from a fleet of Trek three-speed cruisers, hybrids, and mountain bikes. Armed with a helmet and map, each rider pedals with glee up and down the lakefront trail, flanked by the shadows of passing skyscrapers. Bike and Roll Chicago also furnishes each half-day tripper with a strong and sturdy U-lock to secure stowed cycles. Full-day bike rental is available for an additional $5.

With a fleet of futuristic Segways and classic beach-cruiser bicycles, Bike and Roll Chicago outfits travelers with wheeled transportation to explore the city's paved surfaces. Tour guides lead groups through Millennium Park and along the lakefront to catch the skyline when illuminated by sunrises or backlit by one of Chicago's many moons. Misty Lake Michigan breezes ruffle riders' hair peeking through helmets as they pass by sailboats swaying lazily in the harbors and fishermen casting lines for trout and perch. Bike and Roll Chicago designs routes around classic architectural landmarks such as the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum as well as popular neighborhoods home to a number of restaurants and art festivals.
