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.

Special tip

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).

Would you be able to share a recommended google maps link with directions? Maybe even some personal pictures to help us non-locals find the place. I may take some pics today as I'd like to go there. Dogs allowed on the trails?

Hi! I couldnt find interactive map but here's one that I found on google maps, it's the blue route https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1djlfoJYL7CvC6kc6uux5D-TEfnc&hl=lv&ll=56.96711135585824%2C24.134826499999917&z=10 There are no rules about dogs, i have seen quite many people with dogs there but people use it also for walking with kids, so be careful.
