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.

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.

The Village of Glenview is moving forward on another segment of the Techny Bike Trail this spring. Starting in mid-April, construction will begin on a new bike trail that will connect the Glen Metra Train Station to the Techny Basin path. Bicyclists will then be able to travel north on the basin path, through West Fork Park, and connect to the Northbrook bike trail at the corner of Westleigh Drive and Willow Road. Existing sections of sidewalk along the route that are currently 5’ wide will be expanded to an 8’ width to allow more room for the bicycles. This work is anticipated to be completed by the start of summer.
