THE CYCLE SALOON
Why engage in pub-crawling on foot when you can creep along on a 16-seat, bicycle-powered covered wagon of sorts? Pedaling between historic Ballard Avenue and Fremont (or a customized route), your party will work up a thirst, and quickly quench it at one of the many stops at local taverns that line this tipsy tour’s route. $150–$170 (not including deposit). 21 and older only; designated driver provided. 206.678.7211; thecyclesaloon.com
STEER A SEGWAY
What’s not to love about touring the waterfront on a self-balancing human transporter? While others trudge on foot, you breeze past, helmet held high, with strains of “The Final Countdown” playing in your mind. Two local companies offer Segway tours (reservations required; tour lengths vary): Seattle by Segway ($75–$85; 212 Alaskan Way S; 206.388.5508; seattlebysegway.com) and West Coast Entertainment ($75–$150; 2705 California Ave. SW; 206.938.0569; wcent.com/segways).
THE CONFERENCE BIKE
This tricked-out giant tricycle looks like something from a fever dream. But when you and six pedaling friends sit in a circle and start lumbering around Ballard like some deranged parade float, you’ll know it’s all too real. Don’t have enough people to warrant a conference? Dutch Bike rents interior-monologue bikes, too. Dutch Bike Co., 4741 Ballard Ave. NW; 206.789.1678; dutchbikeco.com

THE CYCLE SALOON
There are 93 days between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox—that’s 93 official days of summer. But as experienced Seattleites, we know that number doesn’t translate to 93 days of sun (we’d be thrilled just to break last year’s record of 48 clear days in a row). That’s why our summer guide offers ways to make the most of every summer day—rain or shine.
