NEW TO RIDING?

Washington is home to some spectacular places to ride a bike, and while some have been hidden gems the word is getting out - you can identify corridors with dedicated facilities using Google Maps' bicycle route feature.

Want something closer to home? Consider what's right out your front door! Often small residential streets offer low traffic speeds and limited motor vehicle traffic, making them great places to get in a short ride or to use as connections to get to a nearby destination. They're not always direct, but that's perfect - you'll have the roads to yourself!
