Thanks to Cook County Commissioner Stanley Moore for his efforts to secure a contract with the Bike and Roll bike rental company that started a rental operation in Dan Ryan Woods late last summer. Commissioner Moore has worked to create more recreational opportunities in communities of color.
“It is critical that we continue to push for recreational programs on the Southside of Chicago. Cycling is a fun outdoor activity that will attract residents and better connect them to our forest preserves,” said Commissioner Moore. “The Dan Ryan Woods is a widely used forest preserve that should have as many amenities as possible and by providing a bike rental option, residents can have a unique experience that helps them explore our natural open space without traveling far from the inner-city.”
Up to ten bicycles will be available at Dan Ryan Woods for hourly or daily rental with credit, debit and prepaid cards. Rates begin at $7 per hour or $28 per day. Options include kids bikes, tag-along and wagon attachments, baby seats, and small and large quadcycles. You can find the rental concession adjacent to the parking lot on the south side of 83rd St. between Western and Damen, close to the north end of the Major Taylor Trail.
