Posted on November 21, 2017 |

After leading guided minibus and electric bike tours in San Francisco for over a decade, we are proud to say we’ve been holding the spot for TripAdvisor’s #1 Outdoor Activity in San Francisco for the past few years! And to be honest, we take it pretty seriously. In our quest to inspire wanderlust we’ve set off to find the best bike tours across America!

Today we’re heading up the iconic Pacific Coast Highway. All the way up. To the state of Washington. Seattle is one of the most bike friendly cities in America. Welcoming waterfronts, mountains in the distance and just about any outdoor activity at your fingertips. As our friends at Seattle Bicycle Tours like to say, “freedom is two wheels in Seattle.”

Whether you like to ride by electric bike or standard bike, you’ll want to hop on a guided tour with Seattle’s #1 Bike Tour on TripAdvisor — Seattle Bicycle Tours. Sure, Seattle might not have the best reputation when it comes to weather.¬† Luckily, the folks at Seattle Bicycle Tours have fenders on all their bikes and the tour guides always have rain ponchos on hand!

Seattle is no San Francisco, but if you’re not familiar with the city you might end up trying to pedal up a hill. Or even worse, trying to dodge around traffic jams in an unfamiliar city can be the last thing you want on your holiday. Catching a guided bike tour with Seattle Bicycle Tours means your tour guide keeps you away from the congestion while visiting all the iconic sites of Seattle. Making this one of the best things to do on your first day in Seattle.

One of the most popular guided bike tours in Seattle they are offering  is the West Seattle Electric Bike Tour. Imagine this: riding along the Port of Seattle, taking a break along the river and crossing your fingers as you look for signs of salmon and sea lions in the water and then ending it all with a water taxi ride back to the beginning! If you like to choose your own adventure, this might be the tour for you.

Our favorite thing about Seattle Bicycle Tours? They are the best way to explore Seattle like a local! Don’t believe us — just take it from these happy travelers:
