Cycling and Real Estate - a perfect match!

We cyclists have long know the benefits of riding; its fun (!), healthy, environmentally friendly, and offers us a great way to experience the streets and neighborhoods we traverse.

What an efficient and fun way to tour multiple homes in a given area and check out the neighborhood at the same time!

Given that I am watching a freezing rain fall outside my window as I write this, it is a bit hard for me to imagine that anyone is going to bring this concept to Chicago any time soon, but come the spring, I cannot wait to see who is going to try this first!

But today, its root system is invading your basement, its acorns bombard your yard and its huge limbs loom threateningly over your roof. By law, can you cut it down? Trim it? Turn it into a boat?
