“New Self-Guided Bike Tour Reveals the Olympia Region’s Secret Spots, Tasty Treasures and Visually Pleasing Vistas”
“Growing resource for visiting cyclists offers insider tips for sights, sips and samples along the 22-mile Chehalis-Western trail in Thurston County”
- From Experience Olympia & Beyond:
“A new self-guided cycling tour in the Washington state capital region, along the dynamic, 22-mile Chehalis-Western Trail launches today [Dec. 12]. Joining the existing tour along the 14-mile Yelm-Tenino Trail at BikingBeyond.com, this new digital guide points visitors to new experiences along the trail, ranging from where to find the best cup of coffee to an off-the-beaten path sculpture park that’s only accessible by bike.
“‘With a vast network of top-notch paved trails, wide open spaces and unmatched natural beauty, the Olympia region is widely known as a top spot for cyclists,” said Shauna Stewart, CEO of Experience Olympia & Beyond. “Biking Beyond, and the launch of the Chehalis-Western Trail guide, connects visitors with these well-loved trails, as well as the best spots to stop, explore and sample along the way.’
“The guide recommends beginning at the north trailhead with plenty of parking at the Woodard Bay Natural Resources Conservation Area. Families, foodies and outdoor adventurists can then pick from the variety of stops on the guide to create a custom ride.”
“Bike maps and more information can be accessed at BikingBeyond.com. Printed bike maps can be found at the visitor centers around the region listed here. Cyclists can bring a bike or borrow one for free, courtesy of the Tenino Yellow Bicycle Project.” Read more
