Bicycling is not only a great recreational activity, but it can be an environmentally and economically friendly travel alternative to driving. The Village of Buffalo Grove’s bicycle network includes both on-street and off-street route options. To make full use of the network, bicyclists need to feel safe when using all parts of the system. A safe bicycle environment requires responsible behavior on the part of bicyclists and motorists. When traveling on-street, a bicycle is granted the same rights and responsibilities as a motor vehicle. It is your responsibility to know the Illinois traffic laws.
