The creaking of ferry pilings as the big boat snuggles up to the dock is a familiar sound to cyclists who head across Puget Sound for relaxing rides on the Kitsap Peninsula. Bicyclists are first on and first off the ferry—unless you arrive at the last minute—and get a front-row view of docking procedures. Disembarking at Southworth, on the far side of the Vashon Island run from West Seattle, riders are treated to one of the few ferry landings that does not require a steep uphill charge right off the dock. It’s a mellow beginning for a ride that is equally relaxing throughout. Hills are not a challenge on this 30-mile spin along the shore toward Bremerton.
