LONG RIDES

[links to detailed routes & maps at bottom of page]

Family biking means hours together out under the sun (or the rain, if you live in the Pacific Northwest).

We’ve been biking together for over a decade.

Wherever it’s happened, biking has made our family. Made us stronger. Made us closer.

Made us see things about this world and about ourselves we might have lived our whole lives without realizing.

We hope the detailed routes with maps and commentary, pictures, trip itineraries and useful links below inspire some great rides of your own – we’ve divided them by length.
