May is here, which means it’s time to dust off your bike! What better time to introduce biking into your routine than during Bike Month? Biking relieves stress, provides  great exercise and is a perfect way to enjoy some fresh air.

Don’t live near a bike trail? Take a quick ride on CATA and utilize the beautiful bike paths we have in our own backyard. CATA buses are equipped with bike racks that are available to riders at no extra charge and bike lockers at the CATA Transportation Center that are available for rental. Click hereto get more information about CATA’s bike racks and lockers.

Check out these scenic bike-friendly trails:

  1. Lansing: The Lansing River Trail has over 20 miles of paved trails that are perfect for biking. You can hop on the river trail at several locations and enjoy both wooded areas and picturesque views of downtown Lansing and the Capitol Building. Take Route 14 to get on at Adado Riverfront Park, or Route 2 and start at Moores Park.
  2. East Lansing: East Lansing is home to the Northern Tier Trail, which boasts 4.8 miles of paved pathway. Take Route 26 to the Family Aquatic Center where you can easily enter the trail.
  3. Delhi: Route 7 will give you access to the charming Sycamore Trail. Beginning at the end of the Lansing River Trail, at the corner of Jolly and Aurelius, the Sycamore Trail is a great paved pathway for bike riding.
