May is Bike Month here at Chinook Book and we're taking you on a whirlwind tour of some of Seattle's best places to bike. The first two bike trails we write about were between 15 and 30 miles long, so for our third post we're going to focus on something a little less intense.
WHAT IS IT?
For those of you with little ones running around, as you introduce them to the bicycles, you probably aren't going to want to take them on too many long trips. Next time you want to bring your kids on a bike ride, take them to the Elliott Bay Trail (Terminal 91 Bike Path). At 3.4 miles, this is definitely a short and leisurely bike route for families and kids to enjoy cycling casually. The best part is the view of the bay from Myrtle Edwards Park, and if you go at the right time (and the sky clears up for once), you can watch the sun set over Bainbridge Island. As you bike up Elliott Avenue W, stop in at Alpine Hut to say hi and get your bicycle tuned. Alpine Hut is the oldest ski and bike shop in Seattle (40 years and counting) and they love being part of the community!
WHAT MAKES IT GREAT
Terminal 91 is a bike trail that is short, sweet, and accessible to all; great for a casual evening stroll or ride by the water. Its location and difficulty level are perfect for a lazy weekend outside in the sun.
