So, you’re visiting Chicago and you want to ride a bike. These days, you have quite a few options. You can get a 24-hour Divvy bike pass, or you can rent a bike for a day/weekend from Bike and Roll Chicago, or just book your room at one of of the Kimpton Hotels in Chicago (Hotel Allegro, Hotel Burnam, Hotel Monaco, or Hotel Palomar) and you can borrow one of these city bikes!
I’ve seen the Hotel Monaco bikes at a downtown bike shop awaiting tuneups. I recognized their signature look – they’re built by Republic Bikes . Very cool city bikes.
Yesterday I spotted another set of city bikes, also provided by the Kimpton Hotels. Check out this lovely red bike!
The distinctive little blue stripes give these bikes away as coming from PUBLIC bikes – can’t say I’ve ever seen them in red though – just the bright orange frames. They look shiny and bright and just ready for a ride around town.
