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 members 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.
