Hi Seattle riders
I'm looking for recommendations on best routes in downtown Seattle. I'm in the Seattle area for a while and like to get a ride in when I can. I have google maps and SDOTs bicycle map on my phone, but just wondered if locals have better suggestions for their favorite (read least scary) routes.
One loop we want to do is along the waterfront out to Ballard locks, Burke-Gilman, etc. I have a route worked out except for the downtown area. We're considering going down to Seattle center then on to the waterfront trail, or (per maps) just going down Stewart to the waterfront. I've walked along Stewart and it looks a little intimidating to this small town girl.
Also looking for any recommendations for the Capitol Hill area, perhaps heading south towards the I-90 trail/area
