is a new start-up in the San Juan Islands this summer. While the company is new, owner Thomas Bennett is not new to guiding small, custom, bicycle trips. Over the past few seasons, we have gotten to know Thomas as he visited each summer guiding multi-day bicycle trips throughout the Puget Sound. Landscape Cycles’ base on San Juan Island will enable guests to take full advantage of Thomas’ technical biking expertise, knowledge of the Island, and the great biking opportunities the island offers. This is a unique way to experience the beauty of the San Juan Island’s on quiet roads with breathtaking water views or through the interior of the island dotted with farms and lakes. Thomas can customize an itinerary for expert cyclists or for those with small children who just want to cruise. Add a hike to gain a land-based perspective or a kayaking leg to take in even more natural splendor on the water. Short on time, not a problem, Thomas can fit a custom trip into just a few hours or fill a couple of days.
Experience the joy of riding a lightweight hybrid bicycles that offers effortless speed, nimble handling and easy climbing. Landscape Cycles tours will depart from Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor. You will bike from the marina, capturing views of harbors, beaches and bays, checkout historic lighthouses and stroll around parks. On your return ride, learn about the “Pig War”, the last land dispute between the United States and England. The tour includes bicycle rental and a delicious picnic lunch. Thomas takes great care of his guests by illustrating the natural ecology and history of the area, using his certified marine naturalist knowledge. This is a wonderful guided tour for groups of all ages. It offers a fun, hands-on experience suitable to couples, families or large groups.
