Starting in September, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will begin resurfacing Sheridan Road between Winnetka Ave. and Lake Cook Road. Road improvements will include bike lanes and shared lane markings, plus signs that will direct cyclists around the Winnetka ravine. The Village of Glencoe worked with area bicycle groups to improve safety and road sharing along this scenic stretch in Glencoe and Winnetka. IDOT counted more than 800 bike riders on this part of Sheridan Road on a summer Saturday in 2014.
Glencoe Eagle Scout Stephen Schneider, in cooperation with the Glencoe Park District, installed a permanent Dero bike repair station on the Green Bay Trail at Sheldon Park near the entrance to the Glencoe Community Garden. The station consists of a bike stand, and array of tools attached with cables, and a heavy-duty tire pump. It is the only repair station on the 9 miles of trail between Evanston and Highland Park.
