Bike-itecture | Chicagoland
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
These three elements were continuously, and vigorously churned into an epic weekend.
Adventures began in Hyde Park, chasing the season with a fall-colored, ivy-clad ride across the University of Chicago campus in search of a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece. I was jaw-dropped at every turn.
The essence of architectural iconography. Robie House.
After lingering long, it was off to Oak Park to witness the world's densest concentration of Frank Lloyd Wright designs. I also found unexpected pleasures in structures from other architects. Felt the sun's warmth juxtaposed against the wind. Got slightly giddy at stumbling upon Ernest Hemingway's childhood home.
After making my peace, it was time for a long, meandering ride across Bucktown, Wicker Park, Lincoln Park, then down Lake Shore for some sky scraping.
Plenty of, "oh-hey-bright-shiny-object" detours ensued.
Have bike. Will travel. Where should I go next?
