Welcome to Blue Island Bike Club!


Organized Bicycle Rides and Special Events

Rides are free with no advance registration unless otherwise noted. The pace is generally between 8 - 10 mph. With few exceptions, children are always welcome on our rides, but be sure to read the ride details to see if the ride is appropriate (ie. some rides are 30+ miles in length which could pose a challenge for less experienced riders). For more information, contact the ride leaders, the Park District (708-385-3304), or email info@bibc.us.
