Some of our favorite bike rides travel through parks with great wildlife viewing opportunities, along America's backroads, historic rail trails and canal paths that take you back in time and through picturesque covered bridges and quaint villages.

We also feature fun, family friendly bike rides and trails that are epic as well as urban legends. Each has a story that includes the park services and organizations that work tirelesly to promote and maintain the trails we so often take for granted.
