A bicycle is an excellent way to get around Westminster and the region. The city promotes bicycling as an environmentally friendly form of travel - it is a key element of the City’s Strategic Plan to increase ease of mobility and promote sustainability. Every person who is on a bike takes up less room on the street, reduces congestion, decreases parking demand, and decreases air pollution. Bicycling also supports both individual and public health goals of promoting healthy exercise. 

With over 175 miles of bicycle and trail facilities, it has never been easier to bike around the city. These facilities include:

  •      30 miles of on-street bike facilities
  •      110 miles of paved trails
  •      45 miles of natural and gravel trails

Commuting Solutions has interactive bicycle map to help you get around Westminster and the front range area by bike and bus.
