If you can’t imagine a trip without your bike, Claremont is definitely the town to visit. Honored as a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, Claremont’s streets are ideal for bicycling. Here bikesand bike racksabound. 

A Car-less Beginning

You can even make it an eco-friendly trip by ditching your gas guzzler and taking your bike with you on Metrolink from Union Station in Los Angeles or other regional cities. 

You’ll be dropped off at Claremont’s beautiful historic depot. From there, you can easily bicycle to hotels, restaurants, and shops. 

Family-Friendly Bike Rides

Biking with kiddos is fairly care-free in Claremont. There are lots of beautiful, quiet tree-lined streets with majestic views of historic homes. 

And then there are the town’s college campuses, which have all sorts of gorgeous buildings, lawns, and gardens to gawk over. 

We recommend starting your tour at the Cheese Cave where you can pick up gourmet sandwiches for the perfect family picnic.

Looking for a bit of a challenge? Good for you!

Avid cyclists like yourself can tackle the AMGEN Tour of California’s route to Mt. Baldy, or take a ride in Claremont Hills Wilderness Park, which offers 10 miles of mountain bike trails and five miles of shared-use pathways. 

The views stretch to Downtown L.A., Catalina Island, and the Inland Empire basin, so it’ll be worth the leg burn.
