      Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains Cycling Tour

      Join Biketropolis and one of Chicago’s top authors, Greg Borzo, as we tour the fabulous fountains decorating our vast city. Learn the history and architectural importance of these "water tossers"—often in plain sight but sometimes hidden within the jumble of skyscrapers, parks, museums and neighborhoods. We will pedal to a great number 25+ of Greg’s favorites from his 224-page book, Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains.  Greg will also provide us with details about each fountain's history and significance, as well as stories about the water features that we walk and ride by every day. Date: Saturday, July 27th, 2019. Time: 9:30 am to 4 pm Cost: $35. Departure location: Chicago History Museum (in front of the fountain at North Avenue and Clark Street). Lunch: Spoke & Bird (205 E 18th St.). Total distance round-trip: 25 miles. Average speed: 10-12 mph with rest stops planned along the way. Skill level: Moderate ride/no drop. Gear: Bike, lock, helmet, hydration, snacks and camera. Be sure to check out Greg Borzo’s latest book titled: Lost Restaurants of Chicago
