Lopez Island has world class cycling. Stop by the shop, we’d love to talk to you and suggest a route for you and your group. There are some nice options for loops on roads and you can add some gravel to the ride.
This message is for first-time visitors to the island and hoping to cycle the “flat” roads: first off I must say the island is not flat. The first hill that you hit is straight off the boat and it’s a nice gradual climb, but some people do get burned out. For the most part the island is rolling as far as terrain goes. Makes for a great scenic bike ride.
Please note, Center and Mud Bay Roads are narrow, 45 MPH roads without shoulders. Use of alternate routes is advised, especially for inexperienced cyclists and/or kids. See the map below for alternative routes:
