Good Things Happen When You Pedal!

Bike Glenview is a community-wide initiative & resource to promote biking as a healthy, cost-effective and low-polluting way to travel around our beautiful village. The initiative is made possible through a cooperative effort with the Village of Glenview, Glenview Park District, Glenview Library, Glenview Chamber of Commerce, and the Glenview Natural Resources Commission.

Glenview Trail Map

Before you hop on your bike, check out Glenview’s bike trails by clicking on the Bike Glenview Trail Map below.  You can also pick up a free paper trail map at Glenview Village Hall, Glenview Public Library, Glenview Park Center and local bike shops. The map shows existing bike routes, and paths, sidewalks along major arterials that can be used by bicycles; “Fun” routes through neighborhoods that link 20 Glenview hubs and attractions in downtown Glenview, The Glen, Gallery Park,  The Grove and more; and a tour of Glenview’s most interesting and beautiful natural areas.  Bike map signs are posted at key route locations around town to help traveling bikers.

Five Instructional Videos give you great tips on how to maintain and adjust your bike for comfortable safe riding, properly fitting your helmet, and how to use the repair tools at the Bike Station located in Little Bear Park in Gallery Park:
