The City of Alexandria has long been committed to making cycling a safer and more convenient method for getting around. The City is committed to working with businesses, residents, and visitors alike to meet their infrastructure and non-infrastructure bicycle needs.  The City’s expansion of the Bikeshare program, installation and designation of new bike lanes and routes, as well as the continual installation of bicycle parking throughout the City are just a few of the initiatives that make the City of Alexandria a nationally recognized Bike Friendly Community.

The City of Alexandria is a wonderful place to cycle. With over 39 miles of on-street and off-street bike lanes, sharrows, and trails, using a bike to quickly, safely, and enjoyably get around has never been easier.
