Bikes for every need! Tandems, electric bikes, trailers and even Radio Flyer Big Red All-Terrain Wagons! Explore nine miles of paved roads that wind through our magnificent tree collections. Bicycling is good for your health and good for the environment, too! Take advantage of this opportunity to explore our expansive grounds in a new and up close way.

Just stop by the Visitor Center Parking Lot to rent your bike (first come, first served), and let the adventure begin! Helmets are included with rentals.  Daily rentals are weather permitting. We strongly suggest calling our office at 630-968-0074 before you head out to the Arboretum to see if rentals are being offered that day.
