A short pathway bike ride to the west with the Edworthy hill to challenge you in the middle of the ride. Go as far as you'd like along the bike path if you're feeling like your legs can handle a few more kilometres.
A classic loop between Richmond Knob Hill and the iconic Peace Bridge. Going on both sides of the Bow River offers enough variety in scenery to make you forget that you're looping back. If you want to check out the East Village and beautiful St. Patrick's Island, it's a 5 km extension.
The natural beauty around the Glenmore Reservoir never fails to impress. Although many people drive to the reservoir and park for a 13 to 16 km loop around the reservoir, there are decent road routes to get to it from Richmond Knob Hill.
A classic loop for road bikers from Richmond Knob Hill to get away from the city and enjoy the scenic views of Springbank. If you're feeling more ambitious, there are many options to go further. Be aware that this is a road ride so you will often be on secondary highways with fast-moving traffic.
