    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.
