We recently visited family in Seattle, and one of the things on our list to do was go on a bike ride along Alki Beach. On one of the warmer August days, we had some free time in the evening, and decided a leisurely bike ride would be fun. (Let me tell you, it was more of a derby!)
We parked a few blocks from Wheel Fun Rentals, and checked in. You can rent from a variety of bikes, and everyone is provided with helmets.
Soon enough we were all set up and ready to go. We had three adults, two kids, and a dog in our Double Surrey! One person drives, although there are two steering wheels.
The neat thing about biking down Alki beach is that there is a great path with a great view. You can literally see the Space Needle and the rest of the waterfront off in the distance.
The ride was very pleasant, and the cart is equipped with a bell in case you need to alert others on the path that you are passing etc. The kids turned the ride into a bit of a race (even though we weren’t actually racing anyone), but considering how much fun they were having, I considered it a success!
The bike path follows the waterfront, with lots to see along the way, from people with their dogs to interesting homes (like this one covered in flowers).
We also enjoyed a beautiful sunset view.
When we were done, we returned our cart to the rental place. It will be fun to do this again if we return to Alki Beach or another location (as they have locations throughout the United States).

This would be fun to try out! It would be a cool way to see the area. I’d love to watch the sunset.
Such a fun ride for you and the family. I have never been to the beach in Seattle it looks great. I have to look for outlets by me in the northeast.
This would be so fun to do! I’ve seen these around in other cities I have gone to but hadn’t tried them. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the information! My aunt and uncle live in Seattle, so we visit every couple of years, and I know this is an activity my whole family would enjoy!
Perfect for when you’re with the whole family! I love that you can rent something like this to make going around the area easier for everyone! Definitely a must in Seattle!
Such a great time with the whole family. This is a great activity that kids will definitely enjoy.
OMG! It sounds a lot of fun! I should try it this Fall before it comes the cold weather!
Those look like they would be so much fun. I will definitely be trying one out if I’m ever in the area. I may need to make a trip just so that I can.
oh this looks so fun! Seattle is so fun i don’t live to far away i got a lot and its always a blast.
I’m super jealous lol. I’ve always wanted to try renting one of those at the beach. This year we didn’t make it to the oceanfront at all. However, I guess there’s next year.
I should do this. I would love to try exploring the area like this. Looks amazing there and so very fun. I have yet to make it to Seattle.
The fun memories of the kids are priceless! Wish I can explore this place soon.
Oooh I would love to try this one out!! This looks like so much fun and exciting. My son will totally love this.
This looks like such a fun experience. I would love to visit one day. I know my kiddos would love this.
This looks like a great family place! Such a nice feel for the family who are looking for a quiet place to have some quality time. Thanks for recommending the place!
I’ve always wanted to go to Seattle and now even more so. Looks like the perfect way to explore the city!
