Bike Friendly Arvada – Big Dry Creek Ride

BFA 3 Big Dry Creek Ride
This ride starts at Epic Mountain at 92nd and Wadsworth, and follows the Big Dry Creek Trail northeast to 144th in Westminster. The trail is paved so bring your road, hybrid or mountain bike. This is an out and back ride with only a 300 foot elevation change.

The Bicycle Friendly Arvada (BFA) is proud to lead fun, organized bike rides all around the city from April into October each year. These rides are geared for cyclists of all levels with a focus on children, families and casual/recreational riders.
In 2020 we will be offering two different ride types for different types of riders:
• Family Ride of approximately 5-7 miles traveling mostly on trails
• Rec Ride of approximately 12-25 miles on a mix of trails and on street bike facilities
We will also have a bike corral at several Arvada Festivals.

Our 2020 ride schedule can be found on our Meetup page.

All riders are required to where a helmet, follow bike safety and traffic laws, and sign a waiver. Our ride leaders will give a briefing 10 minutes before the ride begins and outline the route and other specifics for the day. So try to arrive at least 20 minutes before the ride begins to give yourself enough time to get ready.
What to bring:
• Your bike (in good working condition)
• Water (preferably a water bottle or camelback)
• Your helmet
• Sunscreen
• Sunglasses (recommended to keep bugs and sunlight out of your eyes)
• Weather appropriate clothing
• A great attitude and sense of adventure
