News and Announcements
  • This past spring, Ride Illinois proposed and successfully advocated for new legislation that will strengthen Illinois bicycle traffic laws. We're pleased to announce that House Bill 1784 unanimously passed both houses and was signed into law by Governor Rauner on August 25th. The new laws will go into effect on January 1, 2018. The amendments will:
    Allow motorists to pass bicyclists in a no-passing zone under certain conditions to improve cyclist safety
    Clarify bicycling on road shoulders
    Allow a rear red light instead of or in addition to a rear red reflector
