Bike and Run Outdoors

While group rides and runs are generally discouraged, cyclists and runners are still permitted to hit the streets and trails.

Aside from road rides, which are more accessible than ever thanks to free rides from RideKC Bike, a few urban parks stand out as longtime favorites for biking trails—just be sure to work out during off-times to avoid large crowds. Even better, listen to a Kansas City-themed Spotify playlist to fuel your exercise routine. 

Great locations for trails:

Hiking in and Around KC

Cedar Lake Falls

Well-known for its lush urban parks, the KC region also features hiking trails outside the normal hustle and bustle of the city, meaning you can visit destinations like Overland Park, Olathe, KCK and Independence to escape the house and get lost in nature.
