Snoqualmie Bike Ride: Remlinger and Back

0
(0)

This post covers a Snoqualmie cycling route that I did years ago. I intended to write about it then, but I didn’t have much time for blogging endeavors. So, many years later, here, the post finally is!

I have the route map titled “Sunset Snoqualmie” as I read about it in an article somewhere years ago, and the name stuck with me. But I didn’t do it at sunset. Parts of this ride would be pretty dark at night, and I thought it was best I stick to it during the daytime.

The map is embedded from new route functionality on this site that we’re trying out. If you click on the title of the map, you’ll be taken to a route detail page where you can download a GPX or KML track of the route to use on your device. Note that if you’re on an AMP page and have issues with seeing the route map, you can click the “view non-AMP” link at the top of the page to visit the standard version of this post.

This post contains affiliate links. What that means is that if you click a link that is an affiliate link and make a subsequent purchase, I get a small commission that helps offset the costs of running this site.

Snoqualmie is a charming town — and not just for its well-known waterfall! While you’re there, visit the railway museum (I’m talking about when things open back up, to clarify.) And stay and have breakfast at Salish Lodge if you want a treat.

And bring your bike. Of course, Snoqualmie has plenty of attractive cycling areas, most notably the Snoqualmie tunnel. However, if you want an out-and-back route that lands you at Remlinger Farms at its midpoint, this is a good one!

This post is also my first (OK, maybe my second) attempt at hosting route maps on this website. If you have any favorite routes you’d like to share, you can try it out. If you do, keep in mind that it’s currently “beta.” I won’t be writing a post for every route that gets entered here.

But to get back to the ride! Head out from the town of Snoqualmie. Parking is usually available on the street, near the Northwest Railway Museum. From there, your journey heads past Salish Lodge and passes some farms along the way. It cuts through some neighborhoods, with a stop and turnaround at Biringer. Do it once things open back up; then, you can stop for fresh produce, coffee, or lunch before you head back.

Do this ride in the middle of Summer, and you’ll find berries along the way.

The ride is relatively hilly — I was in excellent cycling shape at the time (and don’t believe the map data which suggests I went 2mph!.) But it was a fun day with a treat at the midpoint.

The halfway point!

Things to see along the Snoqualmie cycling route:

  • Salish Lodge. If you can’t stay, it’s still a great place to have lunch. If you want to have their famous breakfast, contact them in advance.
  • Northwest Railway Museum: See the steam engine and, if you’re there between April and October, you might want to interrupt your bike ride for a train ride?
  • Remlinger Farms: Shop for produce, visit the farm, have some coffee, and rest before you head back.
  • Snoqualmie Falls: Well, of course! If you have some time and extra energy, lock up the bike and take the hike down to the falls.

Have you done this ride? Do you have any other rides in the area you’d recommend? Feel free to share!
