Biking is a great way to get to know Fort Collins. With relatively flat terrain, wide bike lanes, and trails that follow the Poudre River and Spring Creek, biking is a fun, healthy, and environmentally friendly way to recreate. Whether you’re exploring Fort Collins’ 285-plus miles of trails or biking in the mountains, climbing and ascending through the awe-inspiring landscape, you’ll understand why Fort Collins has been named a platinum level bike-friendly city. One trip to Downtown or the local breweries and you’ll see more bikes than cars on the road. Head five miles west to Lory State Park or Horsetooth Mountain Open Space to find mountain biking trails for all skill levels. Visit the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas for information on riding the foothills trails.
Fort Collins offers a Bike Share program called Pace which is a public transportation program that includes a network of bicycles for short-term use.
