Attraction details
Owner description: On our urban bike tours of downtown Seattle, we iron out the hills, throw in some history, and cover the bike friendly city as we pass through Pioneer Square, Chinatown, Central business District, Seattle Waterfront, Seattle Center, South Lake Union and more!! Twice daily (most days). Located right across from the Wash State Convention Center. Easy, historic and fun! Other rides are our very popular Bainbridge Island Tour (Named by BICYCLING MAGAZINE as one of the ten best guided bicycle tours in the US) and tours of local neighborhoods like our Capitol Hill or our Fremont/Ballard Locks Tours.

Craig's shop was convenient down town, he was very knowledgeable of the city and gave me some great pointers on getting around on my own as I only had one day in town to rent a bike and see the city. the bike was in excellent condition and I would encourage anyone thinking of doing something like this or going on a guided tour to call here first. I have done this in other cities and this was my best experience by far. they set you up with everything you need.

We did 2 guided tours: the city tour on one day and then the next day the Ballard/Fremont Chocolate & Troll Tour.
We enjoyed both tours, great way to get to know Seattle, with a great explanation from Craig (both historical as practical) !
We were so convinced in getting to know the city by bike we also rented bikes and succeeded in conquering Queen Ann Hill and so further exploring Seattle via Fremont, Gas Works Park and the University District.
Worth doing !

Craig is wonderful and knowledgeable. If you're doing the city tour, it is not for the faint-hearted. Cycling through downtown Seattle traffic can be a bit daunting for a newbie cyclist (I haven't ridden a bike in several years!). You arrive 15 mins early to get fitted with a bike and helmet. Make sure you fiddle with the gears as you ride. I wish I had time to do the Fremont/Ballard tour!

We did the Afternoon City Tour with our guide Craig which turned out to be a great choice.

Craig was lovely guide explaining Seattle's history, culture and pointing out sites the average tourist would never even notice.

The route was well laid out and fairly easy and Craig tried to keep hills to a minimum, we even rode in elevators with our bikes!

If you looking for a tour that covers all of downtown Seattle without riding a boring bus this is definitely the tour to go on.

We began our tour by having bikes fitted and being given helmets. After an overview of the history of the city we began the bike tour. Seattle is very hilly but the guide did a very good job of staying on flat, or downhill roads. There were only 3 separate, one block segments that were uphill. Those were a little tougher, but doable.
The tour visited all of the areas around the perimeter of downtown. Much of the architecture is very beautiful. Along the route, our guide gave us a lot of information about the city, the buildings and the culture.
It was a full 2 1/2 hour tour and very enjoyable.
