Bicycling on San Juan Island
When you come to San Juan Island you will see plenty of cyclists enjoying the weather and the scenery. And why not? Drivers are accustomed to bicyclists and there are plenty of places on the island to pull over and enjoy the view. Round trips tours on San Juan do involve some hills, but are still accomplished by many groups and families.
If you choose to bring your own bike, Earthbox Motel and Spa will provide you with a bike rack to lock up. Island Bicycles, the local bike store, is barely two minutes from Earthbox and can help you out with any bike advice or route suggestions you might need. Circuits to Roche Harbor on the North end or to the Westside overlooks are approximately 20 miles round trip and make for nice, half day trips. The flatter trip to the south tip of the island is similar in length although it does require backtracking on the same road for your return. Our staff will be happy to provide you with details and maps.
If exploring Friday Harbor is your preference, then why not try out one of Earthbox's beach cruiser bikes. There is a fleet of these at your disposal, at no charge for our guests, the perfect way to get around town in style.
