The loop is mostly concentrated around downtown and some of the wonderful neighborhoods that lie east of downtown. Using one of the city’s bike paths, like the Cherry Creek Trail, South Platte River Trail, or Lakewood Gulch Trail, it’s easy to access this loop from many points in the city. Add or subtract parks depending on your goals. Brings friends, wear a costume or stop for a beer at your favorite destinations. The route includes a fair bit of street cycling, most of which offer bike lanes. Wear a helmet, be safe and have fun!
