Longmont is the perfect blend of small-town charm, cultural experiences and the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. And it’s fun to experience by bike!
RIDE THE LONGMONT LOOP
This 16-mile loop offers a great way to see Longmont by bicycle. With stunning views of Longs Peak, Mount Meeker and the Indian Peaks around every turn, the Loop is enjoyable for all ages and abilities. There are a number of parks you can start from: Rogers Grove, Dawson, Garden Acres, Lanyon, Rough & Ready, Rothrock Dell, Collyer or Roosevelt. The Loop can also be accessed from Thompson and Izaak Walton Parks. Ride the Loop clockwise for the best experience and views! Due to the 2013 flood, some of the Loop has been rerouted, but the city is working hard to make repairs.
