So what are some of the things anyone interested in bicycling in Illinois should know? Such as laws, best practices, and hand signals for turns and such?
In case anyone is interested, here's a rundown of great resources for ya:
- League of Illinois Bicyclists (LIB)
- LIB bicycle Share the Road safety education video
- CiberDrive Illinois Bicycle Rules of the Road
- Illinois Department of Natural Resources Bicycling Guide
- IL State Police Bicycling brochure
- IL DOT Safe Bicycling in Illinois brochure
- List of cycling groups in the Illinois area
- League of American Bicyclists Chicago Listing
- Cycling in the city of Chicago (and Chicago Bike program)
- Fox Valley Park District Bicycle Trails (and map)
- City of Aurora IL Bicycle Map
- Naperville Bicycle Club
The best way I found to find information is to search for "[Cityname, State] bicycle safety" on Google. There are variations on this search you can employ: bicycle club near [ZIP], bicycle class near [ZIP], etc.
Just for some closing fun, enjoy this video by Queen. Cheers!
