Unfortunately, Amtrak decided to pull their bike-carrying train from the line for repairs AFTER we’d bought tickets and made reservations. So we made adjustments . . .
We took the train to Seattle, met up with friends who’d brought our bikes from home and who dropped us off at the start of the Interurban Trail in Edmonds, near the golf course on . . .
Lake Ballinger (Edmonds) – Lynnwood – Everett – Mukilteo Ferry – Whidbey Island – Port Townsend
Port Townsend – Port Gamble – Poulsbo – Bainbridge Island – Vashon Island – Steilacoom – Winlock
. . . and another friend came and picked us up at twilight and carried us over the Longview Bridge and home.

Biking Puget Sound: 50 Rides from Olympia to the San Juans, by Bill Thorness. This book was a life-saver for plotting out alternative routes. The maps are clear and easy to follow, the cue sheets detailed and exact. I xeroxed copies of the maps and tucked them into my handlebar map-carrier.
