Bainbridge Island Bike & Kayak Itinerary

If a fast pace is optional, but exercise a given, here’s a lineup for you. Tailor it to your interests, or go for the glory and do it all in a day.
1

Bike to the ferry dock to begin, just like they do for the famed Chilly Hilly, an organized 33-mile ride held every February, rain, snow or shine. You can also rent a bike right at the ferry terminal from Classic Cycle.

About 16 miles in, you’ll hit Battlepoint Park. Happen to have a tennis racket strapped to your back? Lob a few balls while you’re there. Otherwise, take a walk around before getting back on the bike. The 3 miles of trails in the park are flat, and pass a pond where you’ll get to see ducks.

Another nine miles and it could be time to refuel. Stop for pizza at the Treehouse Café and then grab a baked good for the road at Pane d’Amore right next door.

When you roll back into Winslow, after 33 miles and almost 3,000 feet gained, you’ll be right on track for the next event to begin. Check out a kayak at Back of Beyond and dig in a paddle at Waterfront Park.

Plan a few days ahead and line up a massage near enough to limp to. Advaya Wellness is on the main drag in Winslow — an appointment is needed. Or try Island Fitness — you can schedule ahead or drop by and hope a massage table’s open.  –Cindy Jones
