Lopez is considered the best of the San Juan Islands for bicycling, especially for beginners. It is the flattest of the islands and retains a rural character, with numerous working farms, secluded homes, and a number of waterfront parks. Lopez is the first ferry stop from Anacortes. The best route is to circle the Island counterclockwise, which puts riders on the shore side of the roadway for the best views. Every curve of the shoreline offers another exciting and gorgeous ocean vista. Terrain: As with all the San Juan Islands, rolling hills are covered with fields and forests. This is considered the flattest of the major islands, but wide-range gearing is still recommend due to numerous short but steep climbs.
