About this experience

Seattle’s natural features and maritime history Tour. The tour lasts three hours sometime 3:15. We take off from Ballard, one of Seattle’s historical and hippest neighborhood. Tour starts at the corner of 24th Ave NW & NW 67th St Seattle, WA 98117. There's plenty of street parking and areas away from traffic to test out an electric bike. First stop is at the Olympic Mountains and Sound Viewpoint, Burke-Gilman Trail, Ballard Locks, Fisherman’s Terminal, and Lake Union. Your tour guide is David. He grew up in Seattle and is a former teacher of the year for Washington State as named by the World Affairs Council. He is also a national champion trail runner and is an expert in Washington State History, Northwest ecology, the Olympic Mountains, Puget Sound, fish and wildlife, and funky neighborhoods The electric bikes are fat-tire RadPower Mini’s, they are accessible for almost all riders. Although the electric motor helps a lot with Seattle’s hills, you do have to pedal. At times, it can be the exercise equivalent of a brisk walk and on other points along the route it’s a pleasant stroll (or you can work as hard as you’d like for a greater aerobic experience.) A short walk with the bike is required through the Ballard Locks. Step-thru models as well as a cargo bike with a child seat is available upon request. You must be at least 13 years old and capable of pedaling a bike. You also have to be comfortable stopping, getting on and getting off a bike. We stick to bike paths and lightly traveled roads but there are times when we share the road. If you don't see a date or time you like please let me know, we may be able to make some changes.
