Road Biking

Bellingham in general has several streets with designated bike lanes. For low traffic biking, Bellingham offers a variety of neighborhood, waterfront, and park routes.

Squalicum Harbor is a great place for a short scenic ride. The city has published a static Bellingham Bicycle Routes Map and an interactive version, which both designate the best roads for biking and proximity to connecting trails. Another great resource for self-guided bike tours is Whatcom Smart Trips.

County roads offer sweeping views of rural splendor, Mt. Baker, and the waterfront. A Whatcom County Bike Map is available from Whatcom Smart Trips.

The charming Dutch-themed town of Lynden and surrounds make for great road biking. The area features idyllic flat and scenic farmlands showcasing acres of berry fields and grand views of the Twin Sisters and Mt Baker. The Inn at Lynden, in the center of town, provides complimentary use of their Dutch inspired bikes for all of their overnight guests. They also provide a local map with several mapped out routes to choose from including the Margherita ride, ice cream ride, picnic ride or coffee ride.

Wide flat trails in local parks and along the waterfront are great routes for families with young children. 

If you're wanting to keep young ones off of streets, check out the many park trails.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
