Across Illinois, there is a renewed interest in cycling for recreation and transportation! Whether you've been cycling for years or just started recently, you're invited to sign the Illinois Bike Pledge and declare your dedication to cycling!

Ride Illinois encourages Illinois residents of all ages and abilities to ride their bikes often!

The many benefits of cycling for individuals and communities are well documented, including:

  • Improved physical, mental, and emotional health
  • Cleaner air and reduced noise pollution
  • More vibrant and welcoming communities

Here's the pledge: "I hereby take the Illinois Bike Pledge as a promise to ride my bike often and do my part to keep our roads and trails safe for all. By taking this pledge, I agree to:

  • Bike to destinations whenever possible, especially those close to home
  • Abide by traffic laws when cycling on roads
  • Obey trail etiquette guidelines when cycling on trails
  • Respect pedestrians, motorists, other trail users, and fellow cyclists
  • Complete BikeSafetyQuiz to increase my safety and the safety of others

I willingly make this commitment to promote the many benefits of cycling within my community and to encourage friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to ride their bikes often for both recreation and transportation."
