Cycling is a favorite way for locals and visitors to enjoy the outdoors and workout in Fresno County. Several century rides take place in the area throughout the year, including the California Classic Century Ride—the only cycling event allowing you the chance to pedal down a freeway closed to traffic.
The bike-friendly area offers rail-trails connecting from Fresno to Clovis as well as small bike repair stations in most parks alongside the trails. The trails are a great way to explore the cities of Fresno and Clovis. The Clovis Dry Creek Trail offers several stops to rest, while listening to the calming babbles of a nearby creek. The trail winds through several spacious parks with playgrounds, and the Clovis Botanical Garden filled with vibrant succulents. The southern portion of the trail weaves its way into the Clovis Old Town Trail which spans 5.8 miles and winds through the historic, western-themed town of Old Town Clovis.
Stop and refuel by dining at a local eatery or café, such as House of JuJu or Kuppa Joy coffee house.In Woodward Park cyclists may enjoy the beautiful natural setting on the well-maintained roads and trails. The Lewis S. Eaton Trail is a popular 6-mile paved trail beginning at Woodward Park, offering views of the beautiful river bottom. Fresno Cycling Club posts morning and evening ride group meet-ups on its website, as well as other resources and events.
