2010_10_21_bike_tour.jpg Local bicycle tour website Chicago Velo and real estate company Big Shoulders Realty have put together a series of guided bicycle tours through some of Chicago's classic neighborhoods. Their current season is winding down in a month, but you can still register for Saturday's tour of Bridgeport and Armour Square.

The tour masses up at 1 p.m. Saturday at McGuane Park, a park with which we're intimately familiar as it's our neighborhood park. Lee Diamond of Big Shoulders Realty will lead the tour through Bridgeport's meandering streets, moving on to Armour Square. Diamond will point out some of the architectural a d landscape treasures of the area, from its churches to the newly christened Stearns Quarry nature preserve.

Cost for the tour is $25 in advance, $30 day of the ride.
