Bicycles on Washington State Ferries (WSF)

bicycles offloading in Seattle

Riding your bike  (pdf 2.82 mb) with Washington State Ferries (WSF) means you get priority loading and unloading on most sailings. Coupled with the environmental, health and mobility benefits of biking, it’s no wonder approximately 280,000 people ride their bikes onto ferries each year. Whether you’re biking onto the ferry for the first time or are a seasoned rider, you’ll find a passionate community of cyclists and ferry staff to help you out. If you have questions not answered in this guide, don’t hesitate to ask a terminal staff member, your fellow commuter, or WSF staff at wsfinfo@wsdot.wa.gov .

Getting There
We recommend that bike passengers arrive 20 minutes prior to departure time to get priority loading. Late arrivals will be loaded after vehicles, although some routes allow for a mid-load during commuting hours. Please see below for terminal-specific information  on accessing the terminal, purchasing tickets, and bike parking.

Bike Parking
Most WSF terminals provide bike racks for your convenience. When bike parking is unavailable or bike racks are full, please be considerate of others in choosing where to stand with or park your bike while waiting for the ferry to arrive. Keep walkways, ramps, entrances, and the area around designated ADA parking spots clear.

Fares/Tickets

  • Bike passengers pay the standard walk-on passenger fare and are assessed a stowage surcharge of $1-4 depending on route (surcharge waived if using a multi-ride or ORCA card, except on Anacortes/San Juan Islands/Sidney B.C. routes).
  • Bikes with standard trailers do not pay an additional fare.
  • Bikes towing kayaks or canoes pay the motorcycle and driver fare.

Loading
Bike passengers will load onto the forward end of the car deck, unless otherwise instructed by deck crew. Bikes loaded after vehicles (late arrivals) must remain at the rear of the boat and are not permitted to maneuver between vehicles to get to the forward end of the car deck. If it does not interfere with deck operations, bikes may be secured to eyebolts on the bulkhead or to railings. Bikes must remain on the car deck at all times. Please take all personal belongings, including bike bags, with you if leaving your bike unattended during the sailing. Shoes with exposed cleats are not permitted in the passenger cabin.

Unloading
Bikes on the forward end of the car deck are unloaded ahead of vehicle traffic, except when otherwise directed by crewmembers. Those who do not return to their bikes in time to unload ahead of vehicles will unload last. Bikes at the rear end of the deck will unload after vehicles. Please exercise caution when unloading, especially when unloading with walk-on passengers.

Forgotten/Unattended Bicycles
Bikes may be left unattended during the sailing, so long as they are properly secured on the car deck. DO NOT disembark the ferry without your bike. Bikes left on the ferry causes a “Person Overboard” response by the U.S. Coast Guard – resulting in service delays and costly search and rescue operations.

Scoozy 250 SS E-bike—Sensible Simplicity.

Sleek and smooth, yet brightly colored, this Scoozy 250 SS was a great riding friend.

I considered titling this post “Urban Warrior”, as that is really the inspiration for this bike. It is designed to be a lightweight E-bike to take on the city and some of their tight legal regs for E-bikes. At under 40 lbs., and with great agility and strength, it seems to be the perfect bike for that purpose. It is a true pedelec (no throttle), which helps to further its intended goal for riders in those afflicted areas where E-bikes might not be as welcome as others. Plus it is fairly stealthy too. Maybe off track a bit, yet I think messenger bike with benefits could be envisioned as you ride.

Simple is as simple does. If you have looked around, you know most E-bikes are not this easy going in the rear.

You might recall my last experience with Scoozy E-bikes was with a slightly more powerful E-bike with throttle and cruise control as its control system. Today they have moved from the Ride Scoozy name to a simpler one, kind of like their bikes. Personally I like simple, and that is strengthened for me in the E-bike world, with so many companies over-complicating their bikes with fancy new electrics that might be too unreliable (or non-easily understandable). I just want to ride with a smile, not have to know every smart code on earth.

Another plus on the Scoozy list are the quality components from front to rear that help my confidence with every ride. It has a fixie kind of style with a color combo that drew many compliments during my jaunts. Although this type of bike is not my favorite by any means, it did really speak to me so many times. It is possible to enjoy being out of your little box, a fact driven home by the 250 SS (single speed). Yes, one speed, no shifting. That is just a part of the simplicity I am embracing here.

If you want more info, get a cycle computer. I liked the 250 SS just the way it came.

The previous Scoozy I tested was also a single speed, but having the throttle on that bike was my preference. It made starting out just a bit easier, especially on mild to steep grades. On this 250 SS it wasn’t that much more difficult as the PAS (automatic pedal motor assist) comes on pretty quickly as you start pedaling. And once it is on, in one of three power levels, off you go with a smile. To maintain the motor’s power you do have to continue pedaling, but with only as much effort as you desire.

As far as the bike’s gearing is concerned, you have options there. As delivered to me the gearing was a bit low, yet with many rides behind my belt it is the one I would stick too. By having the rear

Reviews of the Best Touring Bicycles

bicycles cartoon
When it comes to buying a touring bicycle, most local bike shops will have only one or two models on the floor, if any. It isn’t that they don’t want to sell a high-quality touring bicycle, it is more an issue of economics and what price range the average person comes in the store to buy.

If you go into a local bike store, the price of most bicycles will start around $300 and go to over $1,500 for higher-end racing bicycles and mountain bikes. Most of the bicycles you will see will be in the $500 to $600 range. Unfortunately, a new, high-quality touring bicycle will usually have a price tag of $1,000 or more. And many of the expedition bicycles that can handle almost any touring terrain will start at $2,000 and go up from there.

When considering a new touring bicycle, I use the following selection criteria:

The following models are just a short list of high-quality bicycles available. Many more models exist. If you would like us to add another model to this list, please email us.

UPDATE: We recently wrote two great articles summarizing the best men’s road bikes and the best women’s road bikes for 2012-2013. Take a look if you want more advice.

Medium to Long Range Touring Bicycles

Cannondale Synapse Alloy 7

This is a newer model of Cannondale touring bikes. While they don’t have the reputation of elite touring bikes, like the Tour I and Tour II had, they are still ideal for touring.

They use all Shimano 105 components (including the shifters… previous Cannondale touring bikes used STI shifters, which are difficult to fix) and are made entirely of aluminum. This means you have lightweight, high quality components on a bike that is lighter than paper (it weighs in at less than 20 pounds).

They come with 700c wheels and use a FSA Gossamer BB30, 50/34 front crankset.

Learn more about the Synapse Alloy 7.

Cannondale Tour I and II

Cannondale Touring II

Unfortunately, you cannot buy these bikes new anymore. But if you can find one used, both the Cannondale Tour I and Tour II are excellent around touring bicycles. The compact aluminum frame and cro-moly steel fork are well made and have the basic touring braze-ons: water bottle mounts, front and rear rack mounts, and clearance for fenders and wide touring tires.

The 700c wheels have 36 holes, 14 gauge spokes (adequate for loaded touring) and cantilever brakes for stopping. The shifters are STI, which I don’t prefer for touring. STI brake/shifters are harder to get repaired while on the road, but many cyclists use them with excellent results.

The Tour I uses a 50/39/30 front crankset and 11/34 rear cassette combination for light touring in rolling hills or medium loaded touring on flat terrain. The Tour II uses a 48/36/26 front crankset and 11/34 rear cassette combination that is better for loaded touring in long distance touring. Please read my page on gearing.
