At some of our magic places where streams meet Puget Sound, city parks have kept development at bay, just as devoted volunteers now keep the wetlands and banks free of invasive species. It’s being done to support the return journey of oceangoing salmon. Keep the salmon in mind as you ride this tour. Each species carries its own struggle: The leisure world of humans seeking health and strong legs through biking might be a bit less essential than the salmon’s upstream spawning cycle, but no less noble.
