A Surprise Find On The Burke Gilman Trail



We love weekend family bike rides – usually along the Burke Gilman trail in Seattle. On a recent Sunday cycle, we almost missed the micro-micro Gilligan’s Brewing Company. Always eager to support new local businesses, we stopped for a tasting. I can’t say it was the best beer I’ve ever tasted but it was definitely refreshing.

If you’re visiting Seattle and would like to take a cycle on the Burke Gilman you can find a list of area rentals (courtesy of the Cascade Bicycle Club) here. I recommend Recycled Cycles on Boat St. they have trailers, trail-a-bikes, kid’s and adult cycles available for rent – and they’re right on the trail.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    looks like a very cool trail. Most of the bike trails here are on old rail beds so they tend to be thru wooded areas. That’s nice but an urban trail thru the city is a great idea.

    This seems like a good idea. I biked in San Francisco across the Golden Gate and really enjoyed it. Seattle is somewhere I want to visit eventually.

    I’m looking forward to renting some bikes on our upcoming trips this summer, I’ve never done that on vacation with the kiddo before. Thanks for the tip, I’ll remember that for when Ifinally get back to Seattle. And hey, every good bike excursion needs some great pit stops.

    I like the trails on old rail beds-is this one of them? Those trails are usually nice riding because they’re usually relatively flat, so they’re great for more casual bicyclists and families.
    The idea of stopping for a quick beer and rest along the way is one I could get behind, too!
