Downers Grove Bicycle Club

Rolling since 2006 on roads, trails, bike paths, gravel, dirt, and even snow.


We're a group of friends with a mission:

  • To promote bicycling for transportation, recreation and better health;

  • To encourage and assist beginning riders, welcome new menbers and be a diverse and inclusive club;

  • To schedule club rides, hold monthly meetings and offer social events;

  • To connect riders of similar skills and interests;

  • To educate members in safe riding practices and bicycle maintenance; and

  • To work with the village to improve cyclists' safety.
