Vashon Island in Puget Sound is accessible by a short ferry from Seattle or Tacoma. Its location and many miles of rural roads make it a fun place to bicycle. Around practically every corner you'll enjoy spectacular views of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier, or the skylines of Seattle or Tacoma. Along the way you'll see beautiful homes built during the island's early days and small homesteads. Islanders are proud of their locally produced food specialties, including tofu, baked goods, and abundant fresh-grown produce in-season. What more could a bicyclist want? Terrain: the island is hilly. Traffic is generally light to moderate on these rural roads except when ferries arrive.
