Boulder has great bike paths, and Boulder Creek Trail is our favourite. Begin this bike ride at the beautiful Eben G. Fine Park, cycling out on the trail east, away from the mountains. The bike path will follow alongside Boulder Creek as it makes its way back towards downtown Boulder.
Ride through Central Park, crossing over a bridge as the path heads in a southeast direction towards Colorado University campus. The path eventually departs from Boulder Creek at Arapahoe Ave. This marks the turnaround point. Ride back the way you came.
