Kent, CT – Great bicycling for all generations, with a choice of five separate loops

  • Kent Loop 1 – This 10.4 mile out and back is about as flat a ride as you will find in Northwestern Connecticut.
  • Kent Loop 2 – This 11.3 mile ride has a little bit of everything that makes cycling so enjoyable – scenic river views, an historic covered bridge, quiet country roads and one good hill to test the legs.
  • Kent Loop 3 – For the most part, this 15.4 mile ride follows the same roads as Ride #2 – but with an additional 4-mile jaunt.
  • Kent Loop 4 – This 26 mile ride starts out dead flat but don’t be fooled; there are two serious climbs on this ride.  Recommended for experienced cyclists.
  • Kent Loop 5 – For this challenging 25.2 mile ride, you will need a mountain bike.

We also have the Kent Bike Routes fully mapped in one brochure:
