Cycle Brookfield believes in the Power of Bicycles, and seeks to expand fun and safe cycling through education, event organization and community support.

Cycle Brookfield: Making Brookfield more bikeable

Cycle Brookfield wants to make it safer, easier, and more fun to bike in and around Brookfield. We do that through education, advocacy and community building. We support:
  • more and safer bike lanes and bike routes in Brookfield
  • more and better cycling connections to neighboring suburbs and Chicago
  • more and more secure bike parking
  • fun cycling events for riders of all ages and skill levels
  • an active and inclusive community of cyclists
We do these things because we believe a more bikeable Brookfield is a safer, healthier, friendlier, more economically vibrant Brookfield.

Cycle Brookfield advocates riding year round for fun and community building. This year was our first Halloween Haunted House ride. Participants wore Costumes, masks, helmets and decorated their bikes with lights. The first 50 children were awarded CycleBrook bicycle safety lights. The Halloween Haunted House ride was a 5 mile tour through Brookfield visiting many of the best decorated homes. Special thanks to the Village of Brookfield Police Department for assisting us in the busy street crossings.
