Roll This way: Bike Seattle from Spire


One of the best ways to get to know a city is from the seat of a bicycle. Seattle ranks among the top 10 most bike friendly cities in the country, receiving a bike score of 70 out of a possible 100 from Wallethub (deemed “very bikeable”), and 71 from Anytime Estimate (17 points above the national average). Spire features secured space to store your bicycles as an added convenience to support your two-wheel lifestyle. Care-free or car-free, it’s a breeze to get rolling without having to store your bike in your home. Located where Belltown, South Lake Union, and Denny Triangle meet, Spire’s location allows dozens of nearby public transportation options. From light rail to buses and electric bikes, it’s an ideal place to live surrounded by the city’s top employers, and best culinary and cultural destinations. Start pedaling today and enjoy a bike ride from Spire to these inviting spots:


Follow the Elliott Bay Trail through Myrtle Edwards Park as you try to spot eagles, gulls, and crows, through Centennial Park taking in views of Elliott Bay, Mount Rainier, and Olympic Mountains. Cruise along sights like the Olympic Sculpture Park and Pike Place Market. For a longer ride pedal all the way to Elliott Bay Marina at Smith Cove Park – a great spot to take in seasonal colors.


Catch a game with an easy bike ride to Climate Pledge Arena. Utilize the safe bike lockers inside the 1st Avenue N. Garage, which you can access using your BikeLink Card. There are also 170 short-term bike racks on the arena plaza and nearby. Just under a 2-mile bike ride from Spire, Lumen Field offers up fans the opportunity to see the concerts and more. Non-motorized bike racks are available at the NW corner of Lumen Field and south of the Lumen Field Parking Garage.


Loops are fun to ride and the Lake Union Loop has a lot to see along the way — from new parks, a wooden boat yard, bridges, Gas Works Park with its hill and city views to Fremont – The Center of the Universe complete with the Troll under the bridge. The trail is 9.5km or 6 miles around the edge of Lake Union.  It is named the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop in honor of a Duwamish chief of a village located years ago on Lake Union. Pick up the trail at any point along the lakeshore and follow the signage for an easy loop.


Looking for a longer scenic ride? Burke-Gilman Trail is 27-mile multi-use recreational trail that runs from Ballard to Bothell and a popular recreational trail for walkers, runners, cyclists, skaters and commuters. Avoid the cards during Bicycle Weekends, taking place over the course of several scheduled weekends from May to September, with a portion of Lake Washington Boulevard being closed to motorized vehicles from 10 a.m. Saturday to 6 p.m. Sunday. Did you know? Travel + Leisure Magazine includes Burke Gilman Trail in ‘The 14 Best Bike Trails to Explore US Cities’.


An avid biker, Spire Sales Associate, Derek Koch recommends local bike shop Meiter for all of your velo needs. “Meiter in nearby Capital Hill is awesome. You can get serviced, fitted, even find a training coach all at one spot.”  Watch for upcoming “Bicycle Weekends” on Lake Washington Blvd to enjoy during summer.


Biking in Seattle is becoming even more convenient and safe with more protected routes in addition to 4th Avenue being added to our landscape. In fact, Seattle ranks third among large U.S. cities in PeopleForBikes’ annual City Ratings, making significant network progress year over year. In fact, from 2020 to 2021, Seattle’s Bicycle Network Analysis score jumped from 53 to 58, thanks in part to nearly 10 new miles of protected bike lanes and trails. The ranking continues to grow with new additions – now at 62. Seattle has recently seen a 21-35% increase in the number of people riding bikes! View Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan which lays out a vision for a connected network that includes 100 miles of protected bike lanes and nearly 250 miles of neighborhood greenways.
