San Juan Island Bicycling

Check out our cycling or driving tours of San Juan Island, the San Juan Island road map, and the San Juan County Northern Trails map.

Head to San Juan Island for some good intermediate cycling. There are some gentle roads but also some grueling hills that will have your calves tingling in the morning. Ride in single file since you'll be sharing the road with vehicles, mopeds and scoot coupes. 

Bring your own or rent bikes in Friday Harbor, a short walk from the ferry. We recommend reserving a bike in advance during summer.

This island offers a great 35-mile loop so you can explore without repeating your routes. Head out of Friday Harbor and enjoy a ride to San Juan Vineyards, where you can take a break for a picnic and sample the winery’s wares or buy them by the glass.

But don’t tarry too long because you’ve still got the nice ride to Roche Harbor Resort. You can explore this historic village by bike or foot, as well as the nearby San Juan Islands Sculpture Park -- a 19-acre park with more than 100 works of art.

Head south to English Camp and then to the southeast tip of the island to American Camp, each famous for the Pig War “Crisis” of 1859-1872. Both National Historical Park locations offer information on this historic event, and each offers some beautiful views and picnic spots, although there are a couple of tough hills to get to both.  

In between the two parks, stop at Krystal Acres Alpaca Farm & Country StoreLime Kiln Point State Park, a.k.a. Whale Watch Park, is another must-see spot, so stop off and look for orca whales in the open waters and visit the seasonal interpretative center which offers information on orcas and a history of the lime kilns and the nearby lighthouse. Also stop off at Pelindaba Lavender Farm during summer. Here you’ll find some calming views (and wonderful scents) of rows of lavender, and over 250 lavender products in the aromatic store. Picnic tables are also available.
