Southeast Chicago Bike Tour

Take a trip through Chicago's Southeast Side with the University of Chicago's John Mark Hansen (avid biker, Charles L. Hutchinson Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Political Science, and author of "The City in a Garden: A Guide to the History of Hyde Park and Kenwood"). This 16-mile circuit explores the forces that have shaped the region's economy, politics, and culture. Although this tour is available to desktop/virtual participants, we strongly encourage its completion as intended -- on a bicycle, using the Vamonde app to provide guidance along the way. To facilitate this, an embedded audio version of each post's text is available for mobile Vamonde users, found on the lower-left side of each post. This tour was created by John Mark Hansen, and produced by Thomas Daniels on behalf of Chicago Studies (summer 2020).
