What we're about

Get out and ride! This is a group for anyone in Arvada, CO or nearby areas to meet up for bike rides around the area. Arvada is a great place to ride, with tons of trails, parks, bike lanes, and great weather. Riding is a great way to explore new areas of the city or get to know your own neighborhood. We have experienced riders to lead rides for all ability levels, including recreational rides (12-16 miles at an exercise pace) as well as shorter and slower kid-friendly rides (3-5 miles at a conversational pace).

2021 Bike Friendly Arvada Ride and Event Descriptions
All riders are required to wear a helmet, follow bike safety and traffic laws, and sign a waiver. Our ride leaders will give a briefing 5 minutes before the ride begins and outline the route and other specifics for the day. So try to arrive at least 20 minutes before the ride begins to give yourself enough time to get ready.

What to bring:
• Your bike (in good working condition)
• Water (preferably a water bottle or camelback)
• Your helmet
• Sunscreen
• Sunglasses (recommended to keep bugs and sunlight out of your eyes)
• Weather appropriate clothing
• A great attitude and sense of adventure

If you have any questions about our rides, please contact Bill Orchard at [masked] or[masked].

The Bicycle Friendly Arvada (BFA) is proud to lead fun, organized bike rides all around the city from April into October each year. These rides are geared for cyclists of all levels with a focus on children, families and casual/recreational riders.
In 2021 we will be offering two different ride types for different types of riders:
• Family Ride of approximately 5-7 miles traveling mostly on trails
• Rec Ride of approximately 12-25 miles on a mix of trails and on street bike facilities
We will also have a bike corral at several Arvada Festivals.

Our 2021 ride schedule can be found on our Meetup page.
