Seattle 
    Heritage Bike Tour: Pike Place Market"A city bicycle tour is like a leachy fruit; maybe not the prettiest item on the fruit stand, but peel off the shell and nothing is sweeter and more satisfying!"
David Mozer, Director of Ibike Tours

Over the past 150+ years Seattle has gone through ethnic transformation, environmental transformation, economic transformation and cultural transformation.  Sometime the changes have been interdependent and sometimes the change has been independent, but rarely has it been linear. A bicycle tour is a great way to explore all of this.

For those who already love Seattle, or for those who are willing to fall in love with it, Ibike Tours' Seattle bike tour is a fascinating excursion into the heart and soul of this magical city.  Ibike has an inventory of 3000 points of interest in the city to choose from, and an almost infinite number ways to connect them for a fun and enriching bike tour.  It just so happens the almost every building and every street has a story -- some happy, some inspiring, some ironic and some sad, but all are informative.  We won't try to tell you every tale, but selected stops along the way provide insight that bring out the rich history and heritage, geographical and environmental diversity, and economic, geological and cultural complexity of Seattle.  Participants have opportunities to learn how: the indigenous Salish people who lived before contact with Europeans, Hawaiians were early foreign trappers and traders in the region, Chinese immigrants built the infrastructure, Japanese immigrants fed the people, African-Americans and Jews outfitted the gold rushers and other ethnic groups transformed the land. We visit local markets, wander in historic districts, examine art and architecture, identify flora and fauna and enjoy the extraordinary friendliness of the people and inspirational beauty of the city. The rich cultural heritage of Seattle is a virtually undiscovered treasure and the quality of the bicycling is legendary.  The program is more than a bicycle trip; in addition to the physical activity you can enrich your mind and nourish your spirit. Custom programs can be arranged year round.  Kid-friendly itineraries are available.

Just the thought of urban bicycling is intimidating for some people. Participant safety is a primary consideration in our selection of routes. Depending upon the traffic, land use and the locations of points of interest along the route we use streets, wide side walks, back roads, bike paths and alleys to wind our way through the city.  And we do our best to avoid big hills.  When they are unavoidable, it is fine to walk.

Ibike produces immersion, people-to-people, educational programs for those who want to learn more about the people of the world, as well as see the beautiful sights. The cycling varies from program to program but is generally easy to moderate.  The program is ideal for the realist who appreciates the world and the wonderful rewards gained for the modest rigors of bicycle touring.

David Mozer, the program director, has been involved in civic and multi-cultural activities and living the history of the Seattle area since the 1960's.
