Cycle Through the Summer In Denver

Get ready for some two-wheel adventures. During the summer of 2015, Denver is one of the nation's best bike cities, thanks to a Tour de France-style pro cycling event, a pioneering bike sharing program, and 850 miles of bike trails.

The Mile High City was named the bike friendliest city in the USA by REI recently -- it's time to find out why. 

Denver B-cycle

Introduced in April 2010, Denver's B-cycle is the first large-scale bike-sharing program in the nation. It's easy, cheap and fun. More than 800 shiny, red bikes are available at 84 stations around town. Swipe a credit card for a $9 daily pass and hop on board to start exploring Denver's 850 miles of paved, off-street bike trails. All rides under 30 minutes are free; rides of one hour are just a dollar. Pick up a bike at one station and drop it at another - stations are conveniently located throughout the city near hotels and attractions.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Visitors Center, best known for its stellar summer concert series, is also a prime mountain biking destination.

Tour de Fat is free, but beer and merchandise proceeds go to local Denver cycling non-profits.
