Ride Start Locations

Lemon Tree Grocer: 935 W. Burlington Ave., Downers Grove.  The Lemon Tree is now our common starting point for most rides (they are a sponsor for the Pedalhead team).  Parking available in the structure just down Mochel Street.

McCollum Park: 67th and Main street in Downers Grove. Rides start in the parking lot by the water tower. This is a secondary starting point for some of our rides.

Waterfall Glen Trailhead is located just south of the I-55 and Cass Avenue interchange on the west side of the street. Here’s a map of the entire Waterfall Glen preserve.
