Two Wheels Can Take You 217 Miles
Tempe a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community
December 1, 2023
Here's an indication of how big biking is in Tempe: The city measures only 40 square miles, but is home to 217 miles of bike paths-ranging from Sonoran Desert trails to bike lanes on city streets.
This connectivity earned Tempe a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community designation from the League of American Bicyclists, and it also makes sightseeing on two wheels both easy and safe. There are trails through the red butte formations in Papago Park, near Tempe Town Lake and throughout the city's neighborhoods and green spaces. And if you can't bring your own wheels, The Bicycle Center near Mill Avenue has rentals on hand.
