Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region offer incredible opportunities for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Whether you are an experienced road racer or elite mountain biker rider, commuter, or just like to putt around on a local trail, the region can offer it all.
There are hundreds of miles of urban, mountain park and Forest Service trails in the region. Colorado Springs and El Paso County alone have well over 100 miles of relatively easy urban trails and dozens of miles of single track trails in its parks and open space areas. Its newest open space, Red Rock Canyon has a brand new freeride area with a number of obstacles for experience riders to enjoy.
El Paso County has built a brand new single track mountain bike trail in Bear Creek Park for mountain bike races.
There are additional trails in the Pike National Forest as well as surrounding communities.
The Air Force Academy offers exceptional roads with wide shoulders that are used by area cyclists on a daily basis.
Bike Month is a statewide event where all major front range cities participate. In Colorado Springs the event has outgrown just a week and is called BIKE MONTH.
Presented by Metro Rides and organized by a volunteer planning committee, Bike Month is a collaborative effort on the part of area employers, individua ls, not-for-profits and cycling shops to encourage bicycling, commuting and the open spaces and trails that make them possible.
Metro Rides and the Trails and Open Space Coalition's goal is to promote bicycling for recreation and commuting purposes in a safe and fun manner.
