Greenline Wheels, an L3C non-profit, seeks to contribute to the vibrancy of Oak Park/River Forest by promoting cycling as a sustainable and affordable transportation, as well as provide quality youth and adult bike education programs.
We teach bike safety with in-school and out-of-school bike safety training for students. And we support a more bicycle friendly community by:
- Promoting existing bike networks and supporting their expansion.
- Hosting advocacy events and raising awareness around relevant issues.
- Supporting clubs and advocacy organizations; disseminating information.
- Encouraging and facilitating riders of all ages and abilities to get out on a bike.
Located just steps from the CTA Green Line stop at Harlem in downtown Oak Park, Greenline Wheels offers clinics and workshops around all things cycling.
Founded in 2010, Greenline Wheels originally worked toward providing environmentally friendly transportation by renting out Segways, electric vehicles and bicycles.
Beginning in August, 2015, the Active Transportation Alliance assumed day-to-day management of Greenline Wheels, with an eye toward increasing bike education, encouragement and safety programming.
The Greenline Wheels office remains at 105 South Marion Street in Oak Park, but education programs are often held in nearby suburbs and on the West Side of Chicago.
