Cosa farete

Chicago has over 100 neighborhoods officially divided into 77 Community Areas. The most efficient, active, and fun way to cover the most ground is bicycling. Thus, I’ve divided the tour into three parts: 1. First, we’ll meet near the Belmont Blue line station in the morning. With safety first in mind, we’ll do an orientation on safe group bicycling. Then, we’ll ride through the Latin, hipster, and boulevard-filled Northside neighborhoods. 2. Then, we’ll eat lunch at a favorite local spot and continue to some of the most happening neighborhoods along the lake like Lincoln Park, Boystown (gay neighborhood), and Wrigleyville (the Cubs stadium). 3. Lastly, we’ll make our way to Argyle, Andersonville, and more where you’ll see that the Northside is like a handmade quilt: block by block, you’ll witness the diverse yet distinct personalities of each ‘hood. If there’s time, we’ll swim in Lake Michigan before heading home (I’ll bring towels, you bring swimsuits and adventurous spirits). The guided tour includes stops at monuments, historic sights, and hidden spots best discovered with a native. You’ll also hear my family’s story and how it relates to the larger Chi-town narrative of segregation, opportunity, and dreams (preview: my grandpa moved here after The War and became Chicago’s first Asian-American high school principal).

*message me for Sept. availability* As a native Chicagoan, I’m excited to share my passions for Chicago, bicycling, and exploring with fellow travelers like you. I’ve been biking Chicago’s Northside since I was four years old. In college, I biked 10 miles through different neighborhoods from home to campus (UIC). Nowadays, I’m a bicycle courier and lead this tour. I’ve biked - and lived - all over the world and the USA: Japan, India, Germany, and Spain - and California, D.C., NYC, and Pittsburgh. After visiting over 35 countries, I’m thrilled to be your local guide in my hometown. I am a certified "Training Ride Leader" for the AIDS Lifecycle, a 550-mile charity ride from San Francisco to L.A., training groups of up to 50 cyclists on safe biking. Finally, I love meeting all kinds of people from different walks - or rides - of life.

Dove ti troverai

The tour includes three parts: First, we will start in the Blue Line neighborhoods around Logan Square, where I live now. Then, we’ll bike to the lakefront neighborhoods like, obviously, Lakeview. Finally, we’ll see the neighborhoods where I grew up between the Western Brown Line and Bryn Mawr Red Line. The exact route may change due to festivals, road closures, weather, or our group but I’ll lead a safe, educational, and adventurous ride.
