bike rhodytour04Port Townsend is a fabulous area to cycle. From an in-town spin through the Historic Districts to longer rides on the rural roads, there are a wealth of options for mountain bikes and road bikes. Adventure Cycling tours, Backroads Touring, and many other entities use Port Townsend as a starting point or attraction on organized rides. PT is a good place to visit on a tour around the Olympic Peninsula. The City of Port Townsend was awarded a Bicycle Friendly Community Bronze Award for 2008-2012 from the League of American Bicyclists.

A BMX track at the H.J. Carroll Park gives local bike riders a place to enjoy this affordable non-motorized sport. The track is designed like a mini mountain range in the midst of this beautiful family park in Chimacum. Mountain bikers will enjoy the trails at Gibbs Lake, Anderson Lake State Park, Cappy's Trails and a variety of other trails near town.
