The green bike trail
Bicycle route Riga-Marupe2
Why locals love it
In Riga most bike routes are located in the city, but Riga-Mārupe route is unique because it is built along the tiny Mārupīte river, making it one of the most scenic routes in Riga. The length is about 7km one way, with easy complexity.
Why you should visit it
Cross the Akmens Bridge and just go straight. Pass the Uzvaras (Victory) park and Māras pond. Now starts the best part! A minute ago you were in the city, now you are out in the wild. You will go under a railway track and a huge overpass. In the end you’ll reach Bieriņi/Mārupe - a quiet residential neighbourhood near the border of Riga.
In Bieriņi next to the bike trail there's a stone sculpture park, made by local artists. You can also visit the local bakery, Bulka (76A Liepājas St).
