The Main Thing about The Veloway is the dictated 3.1 mile paved loop for bikes and skates. Needs a fresh repaving soon (the city has been promising to do it "next year" for about 4 years now) so I am going to rate it 4 stars instead of 5, but it is perfectly usable. Some kind souls (or maybe some workers prepping to re-pave it) have used red spray paint to mark some of the bigger problem areas (cracks) that might catch your wheel and pull you down, so they are easily avoided. There is a connection to a mountain bike trail at one point on the loop, but the main attraction is road cycling on pavement without needing to worry about cars and pedestrians, neither of which are allowed. Lots of local road cyclists and triathletes train on their bikes here. Keep your eye out for that one big hill and be sure to downshift and maintain speed going into it or you'll stall and fall over halfway up like I did on my first loop.

This is a great area...too bad they are over-developing the surrounding area with housing subdivisions.
Other than that the trails there are great for some trail running.
