The Places We Pedal

Chicago Bike Tour - The Windy City's Finest

Now that the Cubs have finally broken that curse, there's never been a better time for a Chicago Bike Tour via our partnership with With the Locals! Here we share some of local Nathan Michael's favorite haunts.



A photographer and social media strategist, Nathan is a pro on all things cool in Chicago. With 10 years experience as an expert story-teller and a solid background in design, his Chicago tour is not one to miss!

@LowResStudio  (at Low Res Studio)

Low Res Studio is an event space and agency that fosters Chicago creatives. Not a bad place for a photo op, this studio has its finger on the pulse of what's happening currently in Chicago and around the country.


@The AllisChicago  (at The Allis)

The Allis is an elegant restaurant and bar in the public area of Soho House (an exclusive member's only club). From brunch to late night Negronis, they have it all.

@UrbanBellyChicago (at Urban Belly)

Nathan's favorites at this Thai restaurant: Lemongrass Chicken and the Pad Thai.

(at Lake Shore Drive)

During the warmer months in Chicago, locals can be seen strolling and running this lakeside trail, sunbathing, picnicking, and taking in the views. 

@AntiqueTaco (at Antique Taco)

Nathan's picks: the Crispy Fish Tacos or the Pork Carnitas (and maybe a Horchata Milkshake too!).

@LongmanAndEagle (at Longman & Eagle)

This Off Site Bar is an extension to the main restaurant, but has its own menu. On weekends Nathan suggests trying the specialty donuts.

Chicago's street art is impressive and extensive. Our Wythe blends right into this mural by artist @Lauren_Asta (at the corner of N Sangamon & W Fulton Market). 

@BangBangPie (at Bang Bang Pie)

Nathan's pick: the avocado biscuit.

@SawadaCoffee (at Sawada Coffee)

Here pictured: the famous "military latte," a mixture of espresso and matcha.

@GreenStreetSmokedMeats (at Green Street Smoked Meats)

Perfect for summer BBQ.

(at Soldier Field)

Soldier Field is the home of the Chicago Bears, and is located near the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd Aquarium, and the Field Museum.

Wythe, our strictly street showpiece.  Our lightest fixie, the sleek Wythe cuts a daunting diamond-frame profile and leads with the commuter’s handlebar of choice—a riser bar—for a smart look and an even smarter ride.
