Arvada: A Great Place to Ride

Whether for exercise, family recreation or a preferred form of transportation, bicycle riding in Arvada seems to be picking up speed. This June, Arvada, Colorado appeared on “The Hot List – 10 Best Burbs for Biking” in Sunset Magazine.  

The article pulled their list from the nonprofit League of American Bicyclists’ award program. The Bicycle Friendly Community Program (BFC) provides incentives, hands-on assistance and award recognition for communities that actively support bicycling. A Bicycle Friendly Community welcomes cyclists by providing safe accommodation for cycling and encouraging people to bike for transportation and recreation.

Arvada received the Bronze Award for their eleven major off-street routes that make up our City’s bicycle network. These local bike routes provide easy access to businesses as well as connect riders to numerous parks. So, the next time you're searching for something to do, pull your bike out of the garage and get pedaling!
