Biking Puget Sound

Biking Puget Sound: 50 Rides from Olympia to the San Juans

Puget Sound offers amazing scenery, and there is no better way to see the awe-inspiring mountains, dramatic shorelines, vibrant urban scenes and tranquil fields than by bicycle.

Biking Puget Sound points you to the 50 best bike routes in the region, from Olympia to the San Juans, with most tours located close to Seattle.

The guidebook, published by Mountaineers Books, covers more than 1,500 miles of paved roads and trails, visits more than 80 communities, and spans 8 western Washington counties. If you cycled all the rides in the book, you would climb more than 45,000 cumulative feet in elevation.

The good news: you don’t have to do them all at once!

Biking Puget Sound lets recreational cyclists enjoy the region on two wheels. In the process, you will discover convenient roads and trails that you might use on your bike commute, the safest routes where other vehicle traffic is more tolerant of cycling, and scenic locations that you might never have come across unless you were on your bike.
