Bike Route Map
The City of Glenwood Springs is preparing a new City Bike Map to help residents and visitors find their way around town by bicycle. The map shows recommended bike routes and indicates what type of riding environment you can expect- a multi-use path, an on-road bike lane, a sidewalk bike route, or a shared on-road route with vehicle traffic.

Tips for Bike Commuting
1. Take a Test Run: Experiment with your planned route on a weekend or evening when you’re not in a rush.
2. Bring a Friend: Have someone who bike commutes from your area show you their route.
3. Stock Your Office: Put some extra toiletries and a pack of handi-wipes in your bag or desk drawer for some quick clean up if you need it. For long rides, bad weather, or formal work environments consider bringing a change of clothes to work.
