Finding a bike route

The city of Denver provides a bike map of bike lanes throughout the city, as well as multi-use trails, bike and pedestrian bridges, bike repair options and connections on public transportation.

If you don’t want to ride alongside cars, there are scenic commuter trials to choose from, which the city refers to as “high comfort bikeways.”

Trails connect throughout the entire Denver metro area. There is a regional bicycle map that shows where trails converge and where service options are available in Douglas, Jefferson, Clear Creek, Gilpin, Boulder, Denver, Weld, Adams and Arapahoe counties.
