Where to Bike on Lopez

You can get an idea of routes that were designed to avoid the busiest roads and the relative distances by looking at the route map for Tour De Lopez. Find out more about Tour De Lopez - our annual non-competitive bike ride, held in April each year.

Bring your own bike - or rent one here

Getting to Lopez with bicycles can be tricky. If you travel by car on the ferry, be aware that your bicycle mounted on top of the car may result in overheight fees. Bicycles mounted on the rear or carried on a trailer may increase your vehicle length and result in a higher fare. Be sure you understand the length and height requirements for each fare category. See WSF fares.

For bike rentals, see our Directory - Bicycling. Some lodgings provide bicycles for guests - so be sure to check before you come.

Emergency: Dial 911 OR (360) 468-4141 (alternate Emergency number).

For non-emergencies for fire, EMS or sheriff, call (360) 378-4151.

 

 

Be Safe!

Please be aware that the roads on Lopez are narrow, rural roads often without much shoulder and can be very busy, especially in the summer. Please see our Bicycling Tips below for the safety of you and your family as well as the others on the roads.

Bicycling Safety Tips

  • Wear a helmet
    Head injuries account for 85% of all bicycle accident injuries
  • Obey all traffic signs
  • Ride single file and keep to the right
  • Ride in small groups widely spaced
  • Make stops on the straightaway rather than at the top of hills or curves
  • When stopping, move completely off the road to allow cars to pass safely
  • Make yourself visible with bright clothing and reflectors
  • Use lights for night riding
  • Be alert for dogs
  • Respect the rights of property owners
    Most land and many local roads are privately owned.
