Elgins Bike Tour Through the Historic District.

Old Main
We all met on Monday 6-13-2011 at the "Old Main" building which is a museum. This was a tour by bicycle of the historic district of Elgin.

The building across the street is the old home of Gail Borden.

Gail Borden was one of the dairy giants.

Now up the road to some of the other houses of historical note.

The tour guide gives his summary and says we biked 2.2 miles.

After the tour I headed back towards the river and ran into this.

This is on the detour of the Fox River Trail in downtown Elgin.

  1. I think there are a few original Velocipedes around but I wonder if anyone makes new ones? I suppose some guy could custom design one. Anyways be neat to ride one at certain events.
