Time travels slower on San Juan islands. Leave the watch behind, turn off the phone, keep the camera, drain the stress, & come soak in magical beauty of the Pacific Northwest: Seattle, San Juan islands, & Victoria. We will treat ourselves to abundant doses of ocean views, mountains, bakeries, ferry rides, chocolate, country roads, & friendly company.
Our itinerary will take us between Seattle, San Juan Islands, & Victoria. Bicycles will take us along scenic coastal routes in search of migrating orcas, until we find the next bakery, lighthouse, or beach. Ferries will be the main transport between destinations almost daily. We will get a real sense of the local culture, maritime history, & US/Canadian relationships. Some optional activities include the Royal BC Museum, Cragdarroch Castle, Whaling Museum, San Juan Island National Historical Park, & Space Needle.
Breakfast and dinner are included for the entire trip, not including travel days, starting with breakfast on Saturday 10 September through Dinner on Saturday 17 September 2022. Participants will pay for lunches. Participants will be responsible for their own bicycle arrangement, either by bringing their own, or by renting from an outfitter.
The leaders will facilitate bike renting, including the renting of E-Bikes by referring participants to the outfitters. Participants are also expected to be able to perform minor repairs on their bike themselves (flats, adjustments, etc).
Bicycle 35-50 miles with 1,500-3,000ft elevation daily. Previous group bicycle experience, at the intermediate level or higher is required. Several of the days are long and strenuous. This can be mitigated if participants rent E-bikes.
