Bicycle path Center–Mežaparks

The Center–Mežaparks bicycle path was opened in 2007. It begins at the intersection of Skanstes and Hanzas Streets, runs along Skanstes and afterwards Gaujas, pie crossing the railroad at Brasa Station and then leads to Meža Boulevard along Ķīšezera Street and Kokneses Boulevard. The path is 6.6 kilometers long and it allows one to travel from the center of the city to Mežaparks in just 25 minutes. The bicycle path has a 5 km long addition Mežaparks–Vecmīlgrāvis, which is expected to be extended to Vecāķi.
