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.

Our Ride Calendar

Everyone is welcome to join a DGBC ride. We limit non-members to two rides per season.

Please refer to the Using Google Calendar section of our calendar page for information on using Google Calendar and tips to receive event notifications by phone, computer, tablet, or by email.
