The Chicago region’s current hub-and-spoke transit system leaves nearly half a million Cook County residents stranded in transit deserts.

Bike the Burbs with Active Trans on Sunday, June 23

Join Active Transportation Alliance and Spin Doctor Cyclewerks on June 23 for a day of biking, sightseeing and socializing along the Fox River Bicycle Trail.  


The Fox River Trail is a gem in the Chicagoland region. Stretching for more than 32 miles along the scenic Fox River, the trail features a paved, smooth surface, as well as quaint towns, historic mills, trees, parks and wildlife.  

This ride is highly recommended for those who have never experienced riding the Fox River Trail and for those who love riding in groups.

Meet at 10 a.m. in downtown Geneva for free coffee and treats from Nosh. A UP-W Metra train arrives downtown Geneva at 9:47 a.m. The ride departs at 10:30 for Carpentersville. 


Enjoy a couple rest stops and have lunch at Prairie Rock Grill in Elgin on the return trip to Geneva to join its annual Swedish Days Festival.

While the ride is free (not including lunch), it does require advance registration. A detailed ride guide will be emailed to all registrants. Sign up here!
