Opt outside your Denver hotel
Passionate about biking? You’ve come to the right place. It’s a breeze to navigate Denver with either our complimentary cruiser bikes for guests, or via Denver's B-cycle public bike-sharing program. With stations located throughout downtown and near all the must-see spots, you’re never far from a place to dock your cycle, then pick up a new ride when you’re on to the next adventure. (Want to find a station or know if there are bikes available? There’s an app for that.)
Serious gearheads are in for a treat: Denver offers over 85 miles of paved trails and hundreds more miles of dirt trails. From rich green forests to vast fields filled with wildflowers, you’ll pass sweeping, Instagram-worthy vistas that will have your jaw dropping (and your legs pumping). And you won’t have to venture too far from your home-away-from-home.
Cherry Creek Bike Path: It’s one of Denver’s most popular paths for biking/hiking/jogging, and for good reason. You’ll weave through a famous shopping district with nearly 500 shops, a historic park, and past one of the city’s largest lakes.
Bear Creek Bike Trail: This 20-mile trail follows the creek to the quaint mountain town of Morrison, making for a fun day trip. More intrepid adventurers can use this trail to connect to Red Rocks, which takes you on a tour of 70-million-year-old rock outcroppings that stretch hundreds of feet in the air. Your legs may weep the next day, but your heart will soar.
South Platte River Trail: This 18-mile paved pathway follows the river past lakes, parks, golf courses, open spaces and residential areas—a good mix of suburban and stunning natural views.
Like all Kimpton Hotels, Kimpton Hotel Monaco offers guests complimentary cruiser bikes to use during your stay. If you’ll be renting a bike, our concierges can point you in the right direction. You can also check out one of the city’s many bike shops, like Evo, just a mile and a half from us, where a squad of bike enthusiasts will fit you out with the perfect bike, and loan you a helmet, lock, and trail maps free of charge.
