Chicago is wet and wild! Join Biketropolis and 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 25+ of Borzo’s favorites from his 224-page book, Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains.

If you’ve never taken a Biketropolis tour with Tom Limon, you’ll be amazed at the organization and support he provides. And Borzo will provide details about each fountain’s history and significance, as well as stories about the water features that we walk and ride by every day.J.

You will be surprised at the number and variety of fountains in Chicago. A signed copy of Borzo’s new book Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains would make a great gift—to you and your friends.
