Chicago Cycleboats - Chicago River Tours

Introducing the newest Chicago experience, the city’s first ever Cycleboat! This social, active adventure is the perfect way for friends, families, tourists, and locals to explore one of Chicago’s greatest summertime attractions.

During Phase 3 & 4, parties can reserve the entire BYOB boat for up to 10 passengers – perfect for special occasions! Parties can depart from one of two unique locations where each offer a different city perspective and experience. Departing from the Riverwalk, passengers will be surrounded by the magnificent skyscrapers, historical bridges and bustling atmosphere. Departing from the Rockwell on the River, passengers will be able to enjoy a more peaceful atmosphere, surrounded by the less industrialized Chicago.

The Cycleboat

How It Works

A bike ride, a boat ride or just along for the ride, Chicago Cycleboats has got your ticket to ride! Riders sit on comfortable bike seats at a table as they cycle at their own pace and passengers can sit or stand while they enjoy the view, the cruise, and the company. Riders and cyclers can switch places at any time!

Bike Shorts Optional

Whether you’re a spinning sensation, a badass biker, a causal cyclist or have never before ridden a bike, anyone will enjoy a Cycleboat ride. The whole boat works together to turn the paddlewheel as our expert captain navigates the boat down the Chicago River. And, don’t worry – the Cycleboat has an electric motor to help out or even take over.

The Details

All Cycleboat rides are BYOB so come prepared with your favorite beverages and snacks – we’ll provide the cooler and a fun souvenir cup. And don’t forget that perfect cycling playlist! The Cycleboat speakers are equipped with Bluetooth so you are ready to rock!
