Fly 'n Bike

A number of years ago I saw a picture of a pilot who landed a few miles from the Grand Canyon and biked to the north rim. That inspired me to get a foldable bicycle and start my own adventures of flying and biking. After a lot of searching, I selected a 26" Montague that doubles as a great bike for daily use at home. I'm not a road biker, otherwise any airport would do. So, this page is a place to share some interesting airports that provide reasonable access to bike friendly trail systems or cities. A lot of airports are miles of country road from towns or trails. I've tried to find those with less than a mile or so of 2-lane road to deal with. Some airports offer courtesy cars that you might use for a short ride on a nearby trail. I've added highlights of what you can find on your trip at each airport. I've biked the airports with the and I expect you'll have fun with these too. If you're interested in finding bike trails, be sure to check the Bicycling layer in Google Maps. I hope my adventures encourage you to get out to fly and bike. Thanks to those of you who have emailed me with new airports.

Be sure to also view the trail list in Google Maps.
