A Chat with WanderBikes

WanderBikes is the exclusive electric bike rental outfit in Chicago. We have an exclusive product and experience that nobody can match. A must do on the Lakefront.

As residents, we felt Lakefront bike riders were only discovering a small sliver of the beautiful trail. We saw the opportunity to discover more from the capability of electric assisted bikes.

A new experience almost everyday. We love meeting new people from around the world.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The ability to see and discover more of Chicago.
For many folks, biking falls somewhere between leisurely and strenuous. With its fleet of electric bikes, whose battery-powered motors help enhance pedaling efforts and allow riders to cover more ground, WanderBikes strives to help “leisurely” rule the day. Available for hourly rental, electric bikes push riders along at up to 15 mph on cruises past Chicago landmarks, including every convenience store where Michael Jordan ever bought gummy worms. On WanderBikes’ guided tours, meanwhile, guests explore the Wrigleyville, Lakeview, and Lincoln Park neighborhoods, where stunning views of the Chicago skyline abound. Helmets, locks and bike bags come with every rental, which are available for riders aged 16 and older.
