Road Biking

Fruita's small-town feel and absence of traffic jams provides the perfect home base for bicyclists. You can enjoy the freedom of the road, absorb the stunning scenery of the Western Slope, and explore terrain from flatlands to red-rock canyons to high mountain passes. Fruita offers uniquely open riding experiences, beginning anywhere you put your bike on the road. Or you can start at the roundabout in the center of town, where you can find ample free and safe parking for your car.

A favorite route of road bicyclists is over the Colorado National Monument. Beginning in Fruita, at the west end of this spectacular ride, this 46-mile ride offers challenging climbs, spectacular views of red-rock canyons, and a bird-eye view of the entire Grand Valley. The Fruita Farms/Highline Lake Loop carries you past lush agricultural fields and around the lake. And if you want to ride to Utah, just hop on the there-and-back old Hwy 6.

Riding and rippin at the center of the mountain bike universe!
