bikenavalparkNo question, one of my favorite activities in Buffalo is riding my bike. Throughout the years my trusty Trek mountain bike and I have explored many areas, neighborhoods and sites around the city. The natural and metropolitan landscape of the city offers unlimited bike riding adventures for riders of all levels. Five of my favorite bike rides that offer unique experiences in Buffalo include:

Forest Lawn Cemetery – under a beautiful canopy of trees, this massive cemetery adjacent to Delaware Park offer miles of bike riding opportunities. You can enjoy a tranquil ride past jaw-dropping examples of funerary art and architecture, sculpture and the final resting place of some of the United States’ most prominent citizens. 

Riverwalk Bike Path – beginning in downtown Buffalo, this path follows the Niagara River northward to the Erie Canal city of North Tonawanda. On this path, you’ll see Buffalo’s waterfront community, the Frank Lloyd Wright Boathouse, the Peace Bridge and much more. 

Erie Basin Marina & Cobblestone District – In this ride you can get an upclose look at the cobblestone streets around HSBC Arena, Buffalo & Erie County Naval Park, the Erie Basin Marina Gardens, and the Buffalo Lighthouse. 

Richmond Avenue – a majestic Buffalo Street lined with large Victorian homes that features bike lanes for a safe and unobstructed ride. 

Delaware Park – Scajaquada Bike Path – enjoy the 1.7 mile ring road around Delaware Park, before embarking on the Scajaquada Bike Path that will take you past the Buffalo & Erie County Historical Museum and onward to the Niagara River and the Riverwalk Bike Path.
