We already know that Chicago is a great biking city. And it's not just bike-friendly when it comes to cycling for transportation or exercise. It can also be a fun way to explore the area's amazing sites.

It's worth a trek out to Oak Park to experience the suburb's wealth of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed structures with the Pedal Oak Park Bike Tour. The two-hour fun and fact-filled bicycle tour canvasses the city's vast collection of prairie school architecture designed by Wright—22 buildings to be exact—including Wright’s Home and Studio, Unity Temple, Thomas House, Heurtley House, Cheney House, Furbeck House and others.

Running every Saturday and Sunday from June 9 until September 23 at 9:30 a.m., the bike tours begin and end at Greenline Wheels (105 S. Marion Street, Oak Park). Tickets can be purchased at, at the Home and Studio Museum Shop or at Greenline Wheels. Cost of the tour is $30 for Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust members, or $35 for non-members. While you're encouraged to bring your own bike, Greenline can also provide one as part of the ticket price if you don't have your own.
