Getting around Irving on bike or scooter is an excellent way to take in the city’s sights.
Head over to beautiful Campion Trails, a 22-mile master-planned greenbelt, rent a VBike at an affordable rate, and bike along the Trinity River. Take some time to stop at California Crossing Park for a picnic before continuing your journey. Head over to Las Colinas to bike around Lake Carolyn and the Mandalay Canals, and make sure to stop and see the storied Mustangs of Las Colinas sculptures along the way. When you’re finished, simply drop the bike off at another docking station.
If you’re in the Las Colinas Entertainment District, another way to transport by bike is to hail a pedicab. You’ll find friendly drivers from Pedicab Prime throughout the area ready to take you from the convention center to the Mandalay Canals, from DART stations to hotels, and everywhere in between. These rickshaw bicycles get your where you need to go while you sit back and enjoy the city.
To explore the city at a slightly faster clip, rent a shareable electric scooter from Bird or Lime. Both scooter-sharing companies are based in Dallas, but the scooters can also be found in Irving. Simply find a scooter, download the associated app, and you’ll be on your way to scooting all over Irving.
