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.

Trek Checkpoint SL 5

$2,899.99

Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic all-road adventures. It’s built with a full Shimano 105 drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, but the defining feature of this model is the lightweight OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed, a decoupler at the top tube/seat tube junction that provides additional compliance over rough terrain so you can stay stronger longer.
It’s right for you if…
Chamois or cut-off shorts, bikepacking trip or brutal day of gravel racing—you’re going to ride far, go fast, and have a great time. You’d rather spend your money on a lightweight carbon frame than a top-of-the-line drivetrain, but you still expect your workhorse gravel bike to perform. You want a bike that’s both fast and comfortable, and you want endless carry options for gravel races and everyday adventures.
The tech you get
A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with Rear IsoSpeed, powerful flat mount hydraulic disc brakes, a full 2×11 Shimano 105 groupset, and 700×35 Schwalbe TL-EX G-One Tubeless Ready gravel tires. Checkpoint SL 5 also has Control Freak internal cable routing, an alloy seatmast cap, Carbon Armor to protect your frame against debris, 12mm thru axles, and Stranglehold dropouts that make it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed.
The final word
Light, fast, comfortable. Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike that nails this trifecta. A quality groupset, massive tire clearance, options for carrying gear, an OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed, and a ride quality that can’t be matched.
Why you’ll love it
1 – The IsoSpeed decoupler cuts down on fatiguing bumps in gravel so you can wander more, reach new places, and stay stronger longer
2 – This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of ride styles, including gravel rides, bikepacking, and daily commutes
3 – Extra mounts on the top tube, seat tube, and both sides of the down tube make it easy to carry extra gear and water
4 – Massive tire clearance means you can use tires up to 45c for extra traction and stability in any condition

Ride Around Washington | Cascade Bicycle Club

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and an inability to guarantee that we will be able to run this event at the capacity required we are forced to make the decision to cancel the 2020 Ride Around Washington.  We are extremely disappointed, but 2021 plans are already in progress and we plan on delivering an amazing “welcome back” party for all of our dedicated supporters.  Check back for more 2021 tour details by May 1st and we will open registration in the fall for 2021. 

 

 

23rd Annual Ride Around Washington

Several bicycles lean against a worn wood-sided building during RAW

Cheney, WA to Chewelah, WA

Saturday, August 1 to Saturday, August 8

NEW FOR 2020!  For the first time in RAW history, we will have six days of great riding but only two campsites. That means only one move day!  And for those who prefer clean sheets each night, there is the option to make motel reservations in both Cheney and Chewelah.  

RAW 2020 will offer four loop rides, one out and back ride, and one point-to-point ride on the day we break camp in Cheney and set up in Chewelah. This year riders will also have the option to drive themselves to the Finish line in Chewelah, where they can leave their cars for the week, and purchase a shuttle ride to the Start Line in Cheney. This is a perfect option for those living outside the Seattle area.  For those in the Seattle area, there is still the option to purchase round-trip bus transportation from the University of Washington to the Start in Cheney and from the Finish in Chewelah back to UW.

Although the number of camping venues has decreased for 2020, the heart of what attracts riders to RAW remains the same – stunning routes, variable terrain, low-traffic roads, challenging climbs, and thrilling descents, all coupled with great support! There is a lot of mileage for those who want it, but on most days there are shorter options for those who prefer a more moderate ride. And having just two base camps will enable staff to enhance and improve the in-camp experience for riders, thus ensuring that RAW 2020 will be a most memorable experience!   

REGISTRATION PAYMENT DUE PREMIUM MEMBER NON-MEMBER
*Non-Refundable Deposit Upon Registration $270 $270
**Final Payment (Add-on) 5/1/20 $820 $820
Total Cost 5/1/20 $1090 $1090

* A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your spot on RAW

**Final payment add-on can be purchased during registration or by 5/1/20. See instructions for paying your remaining balance (final payment).

Final payment add-on DUE by 05/01/20

RAW is a fully supported bicycle tour with overnight camping accommodations. The tour includes three meals per day; hot showers; daily ride support (snacks, water, and mechanic services); daily luggage transport to and from each overnight camp. Along with professional staff, the tour experience is designed and supported by Cascade Bicycle Club volunteers, fellow cyclists dedicated to sharing a love of cycling in Washington state with our guests. Please join us in 2020!
