Puget Sound offers amazing scenery, and there is no better way to see the awe-inspiring mountains, dramatic shorelines, and tranquil fields than by bicycle. This guidebook points you to the 50 best bike routes in the region, from Olympia to the San Juans, with most tours located close to Seattle. Biking Puget Sound offers a mix of major bike routes, such as the Burke-Gilman, and the Centennial Trail, along with on-road bike routes. All trips can easily be done within a day, however, some trips can be combined to make longer outings. There are also overnight options at popular weekend destinations, including the Skagit Valley and the San Juan Islands. 

For each tour, there is a comprehensive description noting points of interest, food and drink stops, bike shops, road or trail hazards, and more. You will also find clear driving directions and information on where to leave your car, along with turn-by-turn bicycling directions. Helpful tips are included on preparing for a ride, what to bring, bicycling safety, commuting by bike, and riding with children.
