Beginner VELOWAY ride
NO RIDE LEADER YET. Looking for one to start ride.
Great place for beginners to ride in a SAFE and NO TRAFFIC place.
Length: 3.1 miles. A 1 mile loop is available by taking a paved short-cut to the right.Width: about 23 feet in most places.
It is totally free of motorized traffic.IMPORTANT NOTE: NO FOOT TRAFFIC! If your kids can't ride the Veloway without you walking along side them, they aren't ready for the Veloway. Come back when you all can be on either bikes or roller blades.
Everyone goes in a one-way clockwise direction. Helmets are highly recommended and required for kids. The trail is open from dawn to dusk. The trail can be accessed from Loop 1 Mopac, about a mile south of Slaughter Lane, or from Bowie High School on Slaughter during non-school hours.The water fountain at the Veloway is usually working. Remember to bring ample water just in case! (Keep in mind the fountain water starts to get pretty warm to drink in the summer and may get shut off during freezing periods.
