There are many trails and bike routes in the Kansas City area. There are safe places to ride on city streets and safe places to ride on multi-use paths, and many mountain bike trails. Links to some with websites are below.
Sometimes it is possible to ride your bike to the trails, sometimes it is not. If you need to transport your bicycle there are lots of options available to add racks to your vehicle. Family Bicycles carries several models in stock for use with hitches and regular trunk racks.
