Our Ballard, Fremont Bicycle Tour encompasses 16 miles of the area to the Northwest of downtown where we see some great sights along the way. Our route covers mostly flat terrain and is suitable for all riders. As we make our way north through city parks and on bike trails we see nature and industry combined in typical Norhwest fashion.
We arrive at the Ballard Locks to view the pleasure boats, commercial ships, and migrating salmon all passing through the same waterway built for them to share nearly 100 years ago.
We then make our way through Ballard which is always hopping on Sunday where thousands of Ballardites descend on the Farmers Market. From here we work our way to the East passing over the demarkation line of FreeLard, and enter the alternative paradise known as Fremont. I paradise one must stop briefly for tasty confections at the tasting room at Theo's Chocolates.Once fortified with organic chocolate (our bikes do have a rear rack onto which you can safely bungee your purchases) we cross the canal heading south along the shoreline of Lake Union. After passing the houseboat communities made famous in the movie, " Sleepless in Seattle" and stoping stop to watch seaplanes land in Lake Union we head into Amazonia. The HQ campus complex shared by Amazon.com and dozens of life science research labs before returning to our shop.
