ELBURNâ€”The Village of Elburn, in cooperation with the League of Illinois Bicyclists, recently released its Bike to Metra Guide. The guide contains a map with preferred bicycle routes around the Metra Station, as well as bicycle and railroad safety tips.
â€œThis is another way that the village can encourage alternative transportation use,â€ said Erin Willrett, Elburn Village Administrator. â€œBy providing a guide with a map and safety tips, we are giving the residents the tools they need to achieve a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.â€
The guide was funded completely by the Public Education and Enforcement Research Study grant from the Illinois Commerce Commission.
To obtain a copy of the map, visit Village Hall at 301 E. North Street, or visit www.elburn.il.us.
