Why stay inside when Coquitlam’s biking trails beckon? Our rides offer plenty of options to keep you exploring on two wheels. With mountain, road and trail cycling options, exploring the city in the saddle never looked so good.
The city boasts more than 60 km of biking trails and multi-use pathways to ride. Whether you are looking for steep terrain to cover or you’re hitting the road on a sightseeing cruise, one of the best ways to get around this city is by bike.
Get off-road and test your abilities on some bike skills trails. You’ll find beginner and intermediate-level circuits at Mundy Park, at the corner of Mariner Way and Chilko Drive, including obstacles such as a timber teeter-totter, log stacks and bridges. After honing your skills, riders can explore the park trails or check out the new Riverview Forest Flow Trail across the street. A circuit located at Leigh Park is great for younger riders, with bridges and obstacles to test your skills. Get biking!
