Bicycle Friendly Community

We encourage citizens to utilize the many sidewalks and pathways around the City for transportation and recreation. These pathways and sidewalks can be used for walking, running, biking, and more! For a map of the Lansing River Trail click here. We have made bike lanes in many areas around Lansing. For your safety, bikers in these lanes should follow the laws of the traffic. The League of American Bicyclists named the City of Lansing as one of only eight bicycle friendly communities in Michigan.
