Experience the Sunset Chicago Bike Tour 

Chicago’s iconic skyline takes center stage with our evening bike tour where you'll enjoy some of the best views of the city on one of our comfy cruiser bikes. 

We start by cruising through Grant Park and along the Chicago River before turning into the Loop to get up close and personal with the city’s architectural giants. From the household names to a few staff favorites and hidden gems, we’ll show you the best the city has to offer from north to south. We finish the tour with a spin out to Museum Campus to take in the stunning views of the city as the lights come on and the buildings really shine.

Come see one of our favorite views of Chicago with the sun setting and the lights shining as we enjoy our summer nights.

  • Expand/Collapse What cycling skill level do I need for this tour?

    While all of our tours maintain a leisurely pace, we want our guests to have fun and be safe, so being able to ride a bike is paramount.

    You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. We will be riding on bike lanes, through parks, and occasionally with traffic. Riders should be prepared riding single-file behind other riders and riding in a group. Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety.

    Please note that while this tour maintains a leisurely pace, it features more street riding compared to our Chicago Day Bike Tour. Chicago is a very bike-friendly city and cars are used to sharing the street with cyclists and pedestrians, but we ask guests to consider this when deciding if the evening tour is for you!

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children?

    Yes! Our Chicago Day Bike Tour is a wonderful way for kids to discover Chicago. Please keep in mind that children under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.

    • For children up to 12 years old or 45kg (100lbs) without good bike handling skills we offer 2-wheeled tandems that allow the passenger to pedal or coast, without having to maintain a high level of balance. All riders over 45kg (100lbs) must ride their own bicycle. We have various sized city bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, from extra small 20 inch wheeled bikes for riders that are 3.3ft (100cm) to extra large for riders up to 6.5ft (198cm). Unfortunately, we do not have adult tricycles, adult tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability.
    • There is no additional charge for trailers, tandems or baby seats. Due to limited availability, please book baby seats, trailers, tandems, 20” and 24” wheeled bikes in advance. 
    • Please Note: All extra small 20 inch and small 24 inch bikes are equipped with both hand brakes and pedal brakes.
    • Our city tours are very casual, with only slight elevation changes on varying surfaces including smooth gravel and pavement. It is necessary, however, that any person participating in our bike tours have at least some bike riding experience, and should be comfortable riding in a group.

    After your tour, we have lots of information in our office in regards to museum opening times and the best way to see them.
