Welcome to the State of Illinois' website for bicyclists. This area is specially designed to give you, the bicyclist, important information in three areas:

  1. Trip Planning (Maps and trail information)
  2. Safety Tips and Suggestions
  3. Links to Other State Agencies involved in Bicycling issues (e.g., Addresses and links to State Agencies)

Whether you're a hardcore on-road enthusiast or a casual weekend trail user, this site is for you.

But this page is not just for bicyclists; it is for parents, teachers, community leaders, and bicycle advocates who are looking for information for:

  1. Educating the public about safe bicycling practices;
  2. Promoting the benefits of bicycling; or
  3. Encouraging others to ride more.

Although bike and trail maps constitute the largest part of this site, there is so much more to bicycling involvement than just maps. So take some time to explore this site. And have a safe and enjoyable bicycling experience no matter where you ride in Illinois.
