Throughout most of the year, Fort Collins is best explored from the saddle of a bike. It’s a fast and fun way to get around the city and visit nearby areas – the foothills, mountains, lakes, etc. You can take it upon yourself to plan your own tour of the city or check out our suggested routes. There are also several companies in town that specialize in bike tours. You can find a list of these companies below as well as maps and more information about touring Fort Collins on two wheels.
The Fort Collins Bike Library rents everything from cruisers to tandem to kids bikes and more. Reserve your bike ahead of time or pick one up on-the-go. You can find brochures for Brewery Tours, an Environmental Tour, and a Historic Tour at the Bike Library or here. The Bike Library is centrally located in the Fort Collins Downtown Transit Center.
If it’s mountain biking you’re after, we have lots of great trails minutes from downtown. Visit the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas for information on riding the foothills trails or check out Lory State Park, or Horsetooth Mountain Park for prime mountain biking action.
