What You'll Get
The adventure begins at the Bobby’s Bike Hike headquarters in Streeterville. Here you’ll meet your energetic and fun-loving guide, as well as your ready-to-ride Bobby’s electric bicycle. The motorized function of these bikes makes riding a breeze, perfect for all skill levels!
The tour heads out to nearby Ohio Street Beach, to see the illumination of Navy Pier and Olive Park. Catch the historic ferris wheel lit up in its hometown, and learn about the history of these famous waterfront attractions.
Your guide will then lead you up to Oak Street Beach, one of the most popular summertime hotspots, for both locals and visitors alike.
The group will then trek into downtown to get a peek at the legendary Chicago River from one of the most incredible viewpoints. You’ll see boats cruising up and down the waterway, and bask in the beautiful canyon of lit-up skyscrapers that the river creates.
It’s only a short ride from there down to Millennium Park, home of Chicago’s most epic works of public art, including the Bean, The Crown Fountain, and the Frank Gehry-designed Pritzker Pavilion. Don’t worry! The tour will stop for plenty of photos at this heavily-Instagrammed spot.
Next up is Buckingham Fountain, located in Grant Park, the largest fountain in the world when it was built in 1927. The fountain lights up to music every night and the breathtaking water show is not to be missed.
After that, the group travels south on the Lakefront Trail to see Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears, and the one-of-a-kind Museum Campus. This unique park is home to the Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum, and the Adler Planetarium, three of the most highly-regarded museums in the world.
If you happen to choose a Wednesday or Saturday night for this incredible journey, you’ll get a bonus spectacle on the way back to headquarters: a Navy Pier fireworks show! Regardless, unbelievable views are guaranteed on the lakeside ride back to Streeterville.
The tour concludes back at Bobby’s Bike Hike after an unforgettable, eight-mile, two-and-a-half hour adventure. At this point, you’ll know why Bobby’s Bike Hike is Chicago’s favorite for electric bicycle tours!
