Self Guided Bike Rides

Family on Bikes


Go on a bike ride! It’s free, healthy, outdoor fun for all ages.

The Smart Trips team has chosen routes that are easy and family-friendly, combining trails with bikeways on city streets. The links below provide directions, photos and highlighted close-ups from our Smart Trips Map of Bellingham and Whatcom County.

What's a Smart Trip?

A Smart Trip is any trip you make by walking, bicycling, sharing a ride or riding the bus, instead of driving alone. In other words, a Smart Trip eliminates a car trip. Riding a bicycle isn’t always a Smart Trip. Sometimes, it’s just pure fun. We’re 100% in favor of fun! And while you’re out joy-riding, we hope you discover pleasant ways to ride across town for your future Smart Trips.
