Families who are looking to cycle together should head out to Ridley Creek State Park Trail.

The five-mile trail is designated for bicyclists, joggers, and cross-country skiers. It is paved and flat, which makes it perfect for leisurely rides.

The Ridley Creek State Park is located at 1023 Sycamore Mills Road. The multi-use trail begins at the intersection of Barren Road and Chapel Hill Road.

Meanwhile, Chester Creek Rail Trail is ideal for those looking for a quick and easy ride that offers plenty of shade.

Those who are looking for a route for fast riding in the summer months will especially appreciate this tree-lined 2.8-mile path.

The trail is no longer accessible from the parking area on Lenni Road due to SEPTA construction, however limited parking can be found on Mount Alverno Road and Knowlton Road.
