I just started riding again after not having touched a bike for years. I've got a hybrid/comfort bike - a Raleigh Passage 3.0.
I'm still getting my bearings and am on the hunt for good places to ride that have;
~ little to no elevation
~ little to no car traffic
~ preferably minimal cycling traffic (I think the busy Burke-Gilman is outside my comfort zone for now.)
I've only had the bike since Sunday, so I haven't had much time to explore yet, and I do plan to check out the Interurban trail in Shoreline next weekend.
I work in Montlake so I checked out the Arboretum yesterday after work. Doesn't seem very "bike friendly" as the trails are mostly gravel and bicycles aren't allowed on some of them. There is a nice paved road that runs through it, with a long gradual grade that I will work up to in time.
Any other suggestions?
