In Longmont, and around the world, bicycling is an environmentally-friendly, alternative form of transportation. Whether you are commuting, out for a leisurely ride or visiting our town for a vacation, the City of Longmont strives to provide safe and accessible bike routes for your convenience. The Bike Map, created by the City of Longmont features trails, Zagster bike rental stations, locations for Art in Public Places (AIPP), bike lanes and routes, locations for trailhead parking, bike repair locations and more.
Bicycle Longmont is dedicated to making bicycling in Longmont safe and fun! They are a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization that is based in Longmont and serves riders in Boulder, Weld and Larimer Counties. The organization educates riders on how to operate their bicycles safely and encourages people to ride bikes more often. Volunteers man the weekly bike valet station at the Longmont Farmers Market on Saturday mornings at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. And, the group hosts the Wednesday night bike rides in Old Town Longmont. Riders gather at 6:30 p.m. at the flag display at Roosevelt Park and enjoy a leisurely 7.5 mile ride around Old Town. The group also hosts an East Side Bike Night on Monday evenings, and Moonlight rides throughout the summer. For more information, click here.
In 2017, the City of Longmont introduced the Bike Share program, owned and operated by Zagster, and features ten stations located around town, that house easy-to-ride cruiser bikes. To access the bikes, riders pay by the hour or join the program by signing up for monthly or annual memberships. Rides for members-who must be 18 or older-are free for the first hour, and then $3 per hour after that. The Zagster mobile app is available for iPhone or Android and can be accessed at zagster.com/longmont.
