Bike Ride on the Platte River Trail

The Trail (route map)

A bike ride along the South Platte River from the Platte River Grill in Littleton to Confluence Park and back. Total distance 24 miles RT. Estimated time 2-3 hours.


The Ales

On the mother of all patios at the Platte River Grill



We will meet in the back parking lot of the Platte River Grill which has access to the bike trail at 10:00 am and leave promptly at 10:30


Difficulty: Easy but long

This is a flat concrete bike trail all the way. We will keep a pace between 12 - 15 mph with a few sprints (20mph+) here and there. There will be very few if any stops.


What to bring?

A good long distance bike: This might be a little too long for a cruiser unless you are a pro at it. There are no BCycle rentals available here.

Water, helmet and proper biking apparel.


There are no costs other than your restaurant tab.

Check for messages on this site right up until ride time in case we need to make last minute changes.

    Hi Everyone!

    I am very excited about the great turnout for the Platte River Bike Ride. With such a large group it is important to get an accurate head count so we can plan accordingly. If you are not 100% certain that you will make it then please release your RSVP. You can rejoin when you are certain.

    Please read the Trails and Ales' policy for no shows and last minute cancellations.

    Also if you are attending as a couple please update your RSVP to include both individuals.

    If anything comes up and you can't make it please update your RSVP. Remember that others are expecting you so don't leave them hanging.

    Thank you for helping to make this a fun time for everyone.
