Being named one of the top 10 cities for bicyclists by Forbes Magazine, Mesa is the perfect place to hit the trails (or the bike lanes)! You can bike 12 months of the year here in Mesa, so pick a place, strap on your helmet and start peddling!

Mountain Bikers

For avid mountain bikers, explore the Superstition Wilderness or ride along Power Road and the Lower Salt River into the Tonto National Forest. Enjoy Arizona’s great outdoors by bike!

Another place to check out is Desert Trails Park. This 35-acre park has several trails, a pump track and a kids’ skills track and is perfect for mountain bikers of all levels and ages.

Road Bikers

Mesa wasn’t named one of the top 10 cities for bicyclists for nothing! Mesa has more than 40 miles of bike lanes and desert biking trails. Cruise down Usery Pass Road toward Usery Mountain Regional Park and enjoy Arizona’s natural landscape.

Family Bikers

Although Freestone Park is known for its Skate Park, playgrounds, lake, and carnival rides, it also has a path around and through the entire park, making the perfect bike trail for families. Take your family on this fun, beautiful, and relatively short bike ride in Gilbert and you could even make a picnic out of it if your bike has a basket! The park is located on Lindsay Rd., south of Guadalupe Rd.
