  • Day 1

    Welcome to the San Juan Islands

    Meet your guides at our first hotel in the quaint seaside town of Friday Harbor. We’ll kick things off with a bike fitting and safety review, then pedal to a picnic lunch overlooking Puget Sound. Then it’s time for our first fantastic ride: take a spin around Pear Point and pass driftwood-strewn Jackson Beach. Opt for some extra miles if you’re warmed up and ready to keep riding, or choose to head back to Friday Harbor House. This evening, join your guides for a welcome drink followed by a harbor view dinner at our hotel.

    Circumnavigating the Island

    Today’s loop ride covers nearly every road on San Juan Island! At Westcott Bay, we’ll stop to learn about the aquaculture of oysters and shuck our own shellfish for a decadent lunch. Afterward, cycle back to Friday Harbor and take a stroll down the docks or peruse the town’s boutiques. Tonight we invite you to dine on your own at one of Friday Harbor’s many charming restaurants—note that dinner reservations are highly recommended.

  • Day 3

    Tour de Lopez

    This morning we move on from San Juan Island and make our way to Lopez Island. With 63 miles of shoreline and just 2,500 year-round residents, this 15-mile landmass is known as the “Friendly Isle.” We’ll cover most of it on a loop ride through forests and rolling farmlands with quiet bays and beaches in our midst; our route follows the annual Tour de Lopez, a celebrated event for local cyclists. We’ll pause for a picnic-style lunch, then visit a glassblower’s workshop to discover artisans at work on the island. This afternoon, hop a ferry to Orcas Island—our last stop in the San Juans. Ride your bike right off the ferry or hop in the van and head directly to our next hotel, which occupies a private bay at the foot of Mount Constitution. Tonight, explore historic Eastsound before joining your guides for dinner at our favorite local spot.

Not up for a climb today? Get a lift to the top then enjoy the descent, whizzing by remote harbors all the way down to Doe Bay. We’ll spend our last night in Eastsound, capped off with a farewell dinner that honors all things seasonal and local.
