Outdoor adventures, mostly gravel rides, but not always

Vashon & Maury Islands

A cafe ride of rolling hills, quiet roads, and well-maintained trails on two island of Puget Sound

Switchback down to the water from Point Robinson

Blue skies and warming temperatures promised ideal riding conditions so I chose to venture to Vashon Island to tour the farms, coffee stands, and bakeries. I started with a route from the Seattle International Randonneurs, 2020 WTS #9: Vashon Island, and modified it slightly to add some gravel and a trip through Dockton Forest, both of which turned out to be great additions to the route.

Hills, hills, hills on beautiful Bainbridge Island

South Beach & Toe Jam Hill

Who knew Bainbridge could hurt this much? This route was created by Tom of BI Cycle as a challenge for the locals tackle all the major hills on the island from the hard direction. It’s quite a bit longer and hillier than the Chilly Hilly. Come prepared!
