Outdoor living is a way of life in Denver, which is why cycling is a staple in the Mile High City. With more than 300 days of sunshine annually, and more than 300mi dedicated to urban riders, it’s the perfect place to do a little off-road riding outside the city. But if the rough terrain isn't your idea of a bike ride, the city features trails along the South Platte riverfront, through the Botanical Gardens, and into the downtown shopping area.
Pro tip: The Cherry Creek Bike Path is a scenic route that provides access to Castlewood Canyon State Park. Otherwise, get yourself a mountain bike and do what one does with a mountain bike -- shred the trails of a city in the mountains.
