Cross-Seattle Tour, Whidbey Island Trek: My Bike Show Talk, Sunday, March 1

Want to take a stunning cross-Seattle bike tour that winds from Alki Beach to Lake Washington?

Or maybe you will conquer the fourth longest island in the continental U.S. — Whidbey Island? It’s a great ride on your way to the San Juan Islands, and it is certainly a fantastic biking vacation in its own right.

Ever taken this ride? It goes from saltwater to fresh, across the middle of Seattle, and hits two amazing bike boulevards as well as quirky sights like the famous Hat n Boots.

These are only two of the dozen rides that I’ll be profiling in my talk this Sunday, March 1, at 11 a.m. at the Seattle Bike Show and Travel Trips & Adventures Expo. I’m actually on the TTA Expo stage, as the bike show will only have a performance area, not a stage with chairs and digital projection capabilities.

I’ll talk about where to ride, and show my favorite road and paved trail routes in Seattle and surrounding Puget Sound communities. You’ll hear about:Whidbey Island

  • historic city routes
  • urban boulevards
  • suburban connecting routes
  • rides into our mountain foothills
  • loops through area farming valleys
  • ferry trips to the peninsulas
  • destination island rides

The two shows are being held together, so you get two events for one ticket, at the Centurylink Field Events Center. Cascade Bicycle Club members even get a discount.

There’s lots to see and do at the event, including a zip line, kayak demo pool, food and drink and lots of exhibits with great products, events and adventures. And, of course, you won’t want to miss other Bike Show presenters too, from stunt rider Ryan Leech to inspiring coach Craig Undem joke-cracking Tour de France commentator Bob Roll.

Mountaineers Books will have a booth at the show, and I’ll be doing a signing of my new 2nd edition of Biking Puget Sound after my talk.
