SELF GUIDED TOURS

Most Popular Ride: Bike to Ballard / Fremont
This ride will take you through some very scenic parts of the Emerald city, including Myrtle Edwards Park, the Ballard Locks and the uber-hip Fremont neighborhood. Take the Burke Gillman trail through Gasworks Park and stop off at Ivar’s Salmon House for a delicious lunch on the deck overlooking Lake Union. Hop back on the bike to ride off the calories as you pedal across the University Bridge along east Lake Union and back into downtown.

Ride: Bainbridge Island

Bainbridge Island referred to as “the other side” by locals is a little slice of small town heaven. Quaint shops and restaurants line main-street like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Journey into the heart of the island and experience a history rich in agriculture and diversity. Eat some of the best strawberries you’ll ever taste, sample some of the finest wines the northwest has to offer, or just ride around this beautiful island on a hilly 36.5 mile course then relax on the Washington State Ferries on your return to Seattle.

If the 36.5 miles is a little much for one day, Ride up the island to The Beach Glass Cottage, spend the night and finish off the ride the next morning!

Ride: West Seattle
West Seattle is another version of the Seattle waterfront entirely, a beach version. Take the short ride out to West Seattle and ride along the “boardwalk” which follows the coast line on one side, and is lined with shops and restaurants on the other. Alki has everything you could be looking for, stop for some coffee and a pastry, amazing pizza at Pegasus, Fish and Chips at Spuds, or fantastic mexican food at Cactus. Or just stop for a minute and soak up the sun and sand on the beach.Ride Map

Ride: Mercer Island
Take the floating bridge across Lake Washington over to Mercer Island and enjoy the scenic loop that offers a waterfront view almost the entire ride around this beautiful Island that sits in the middle of Lake Washington.

Ride: Lake Washington Loop

This Seattle Half Century is an epic win! A big road ride that touches the three major lakes in the area: Lake Union, Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish. While not incredibly hilly, the ride is a long, fun spin through everything our area has to offer. The urban riding in Seattle and the foothills of the Cascade Mountains represent extremes of scenery. Stop into Pomegranate Bistro, or the Redhook Brewery for a yummy lunch halfway. Feel free to stop by Washington’s outdoor Velodrome at Marymoore Park, and if you are still feeling it, make the Mercer Island loop and look at all the beautiful real estate along the water.
