Biking & Cycling

Heralded as one of the best biking areas in the nation, Spokane welcomes mountain bikers, free riders, roadies and cruisers. The likes of Outside Magazine, Sunset Magazine and National Geographic Traveler have spotlighted some of our fantastic regional trails. Whether you’re looking for hours of smooth pavement, miles of trail or an easy scenic cruise…you’ll find it here! 

Family-Friendly Biking

Spokane’s spirit of inclusion supports bikers of all ages and abilities. The city’s annual SpokeFest event attracts over 2,000 diverse riders to celebrate the joy of cycling. Point being: In Spokane, everyone’s invited and there’s always a ride for you. The 37-mile long paved, flat Centennial Trail runs through Riverfront Park offering stunning views of the Spokane River, the Spokane Falls and much, much more. For a day trip, check out the Route of the Hiawatha which runs at a slight decline through the glorious Rocky Mountains. There’s also The Trail of Coeur d’Alenes, a paved route which skirts Lake Coeur d’Alene and passes through the historic resort town of Harrison, Idaho.  

Mountain Biking

Located in the pocket of the Northwest Rockies, Spokane’s world-class ski resorts transform into mountain biking destinations in the warmer months. Come summer,  bikers tear through Schweitzer Mountain Resort, Silver Mountain Resort and Mount Spokane State Park. Thrill seekers can bomb down an array of single track trails, and less experienced riders can enjoy alpine views on moderate routes.

But you don’t have to go to the big mountains to hit the trails. Dozens of paths can be found minutes from Spokane. Local favorites include Liberty Lake Loop Trail, Beacon Hill/Camp Sekani  and Iller Creek Trail.

Road Biking

With hundreds of miles of natural landscape stretching in every direction, road bikers will revel in the path less traveled.  On the Centennial Trail, cyclists can trace the Spokane River 37 miles, and with the exception of a very short road section, they can enjoy the trip without sharing the pavement with cars. Likewise, the non-motorized Trail of Coeur d’Alenes spans 72 miles through the beautiful Idaho panhandle. For those looking to explore the road, the rolling hills of the expansive Palouse offer endless routes with stunning vistas.
