You can’t beat the scenery that you see as you ride on this trail. Lots of opportunities for photos. The trail is designed more for taking a leisurely ride at a lower rate of speed (less than 15 mph). At higher speeds you get the...More
If you really want to see Glenwood Canyon the way to it used to be rent bikes 🚲 and ride up the canyon! I do miss the old road you could see so much more than the double deck Interstate. Stop 🛑 often and take...More
We rented bikes in Glenwood Springs and were dropped off to cycle back towards town. It's a lovely ride by the river (just look at the photos everyone has posted) and though the noise from the road is sometimes noticeable it doesn't get in the...More

It depends on weather. Once snow falls, you don't want to be riding a bike on the trail. Also, as the water rises in the Colorado River, the trail closes, as part of it becomes submerged in the river. Last year, the snow started in early November. This year,
There are very few bike shops left in Glenwood Springs - many of them closed in 2016. I would try Sunlight Mountain Ski & Bike (970) 945-9425. They should be able to advise you on what options are available at this late time in the season.
