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.
