Event description
Join Biketropolis and Preservation Chicago for a Biking Tour of the "Chicago 7 Most Endangered" Sites.

About this Event

Join Biketropolis and Preservation Chicago for a Biking Tour of the "Chicago 7 Most Endangered" Sites for 2020 and a few Chicago 7 sites from years past.

Since 2003, Preservation Chicago has announced its annual "Chicago 7 Most Endangered" list to draw attention to important Chicago historic resources threatened by demolition due to development pressure, neglect, or a lack of resources. Once included as a Chicago 7, a historic building or resource remains an advocacy priority of Preservation Chicago for as many years as it takes for it to be saved or demolished.

This tour is curated with Preservation Chicago's staff and Executive Director Ward Miller to give riders a first-hand account of why buildings are on the 2020 list and share some past Chicago 7 success stories and some tragic losses. We will ride through several different neighborhoods, have access to the interior of some of the sites, and learn about the historical and architectural importance of each location. Preservation Chicago has identified approximately 100 historic resources through its "Chicago 7 Most Endangered" program, enjoyed many wins, and suffered some tragic losses to Chicago's built environment. Enjoy biking through some of Chicago's diverse neighborhoods and learn more about the "Chicago 7 Most Endangered" program and efforts.
