Amazing Bike ride

Went on a 16 mile bike ride through the canyon along the river. The views were breathtaking! I recommend for anyone. We had ages from 12-58

This is a enjoyable bike ride with much to see. It has some small hills, but nothing to major. Hanging lake is along the way, and is a must see....

The bike trail through Glenwood Canyon is just awesome, the scenery breathtaking, the Colorado River rushing through the high walled canyon, well, just amazing. an easy trail for all levels of riders, just look out for the hard core, who insist on riding as fast as they can and passing you. They will almost always sound a bell or holler... More

We spent the night in Glenwoods Springs and had an 8:30 am bike reservation with Blue Sky Adventures and Canyon Bikes. They were excellent getting our group ready to go with bikes, helmets etc. I would highly recommend everyone using the bags they give you to clip on the front handlebar. It will hold water, ice packs, snacks etc. Bring... More

16 miles through the beautiful canyon with plenty of opportunities for incredible views and great pictures. Mostly downhill and just short/long enough for good exercise but won't drain you. Was 90 when we did it but cool breezes off cold river and a good breese up the canyon make it nice.

It was an easy to moderate ride. Cannot wait to do again! A favorite area in Colorado! We rented bikes for $8/hr and rode for about 2 hours

This is an easy bike ride (only one small hill through the town of No Name). Most riders will start in Glenwood Springs and ride to Hanging Lake. If you have smaller children, this bike path will accommodate a trailer. The canyon gets warm in the summer so remember to bring plenty of water and I would recommend a snack.... More

Once you leave town your beside the interstate for only a mile or so, after that it's really nice and right by the river most of the way. Relatively Easy ride.
