Best Bike Rides Connecticut describes 40 of the greatest recreational rides in the Connectiut. Road rides, rail rides, bike paths, and single-track mountain bike rides all get included. Most rides are in the 5- to 35-mile range, allowing for great afternoon outings and family adventures (though there are plenty of challenging rides in the mix as well).
