    Saw this picture and wanted to copy it and send it to my boyfriend with a note that this is going to be us someday. I'm planning a bike tour for his birthday (he doesn't know about it yet). I want to ride from Seattle to the Pacific Ocean and then to Portland. If you have any tips, that would be awesome.

    Great picture! What brand of bicycles are those?
  • Gerhard Illig 4y

    Thank you (hdtravir1)!
    We use cross racing bikes called „PURE BLOOD” from the german brand FIXIE INC (cycles-for-heroes.com). Originally they are not designed for touring – but why not run a sporty, lightweight, attractive, fast, good looking bike for tours ;-)
    It was not easy to find racks for mounting panniers on the bike. But we could manage it.

    Tank you mwettstein!
    Unfortunately I don’t know anything about touring from Seattle to the Pacific Ocean.
    In 2008 we rode from Vancouver to San Francisco on the peninsula route (via Lake Crescent and Kalaloch) – so we did not pass Seattle. In 2010 we flew to Seattle, made a round trip around Pudget Sound and went on the AMTRAK to West Glacier.
    But I’m sure you can ask the Adventure Cycling Association for maps. One of the Pacific Coast routes is passing Bremerton, Aberdeen and Raymond.
    Have a good ride – and send greetings to your boyfriend!

    Thank you! I’ll keep on shooting. You will get more pictures.
