Looking to do a little two-wheeling in your spare time? Dust off your bicycle and grab your helmet because OKC is filled with great trails and treks for you to wheel yourself along. Here are just a few ways for you to peddle away some free time.
Every Wednesday, you can join riders of all ages and experience levels at the Chesapeake Boathouse for a 5- or 10-mile ride on the Oklahoma River Trails. Don’t worry if you’re not a super speedy pro. The group has a strict “no drop” policy to make sure no one gets left behind. And if you come 30 minutes early, you can get pre-ride bike fittings and mini-clinics from Schlegel Bicycles on topics including road safety, how to change a flat, proper gear shifting and more.
Bert Cooper Trail
Formerly known as the Lake Hefner Trails, this loop is filled with 9.1 miles of spiffy spinning and is great for bike enthusiasts who prefer a nice flat ride with a view.
Bluff Creek Trail
Looking for more of an off-road adventure? We’ve got just the trail for you. The Bluff Creek Trail is a single loop with tight turns and pulse pumping challenges. At 3.5 miles you’ll get in plenty of exhilaration without ending totally tuckered out.
Are you more of an urban adventurer? Spokies are just what you need. If you don't have a bike, Spokies still lets you have fun on two wheels. You can check out a bike seven days a week between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. (fees vary), and all you have to do is return your bike to one of six downtown kiosks. Easy as pie.
