The City of Elgin website no longer refers to any bike to work events. However, they have a safety campaign that rewards shopping trips made by bike.

From the website:

The Campaign includes:

  • Elgin’s very own team of Bicycling Ambassadors! The Bicycling Ambassadors are a team of two bike safety specialists that provide outreach and education on a variety of bicycle-related topics like fitting a helmet or the best biking routes. Look for them at Elgin’s festivals and events throughout the summer.
  • Elgin By Bike – Elgin By Bike is a program that encourages the residents of Elgin to visit local business through incentives that reward shopping trips made by bike. Participants will also be entered into a raffle to win a brand new bicycle! Contact the Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin at 847-488-1456 or visit for more information.
  • Safety publications – Pamphlets on everything from sharing the road with bicyclists to proper helmet use are available in both English and Spanish.

For more information on the Elgin Bicycle Safety Campaign, contact the Active Transportation Alliance at 312.427.3325 x238.
