Explore: Bike Ride from Redmond to Woodinville

We’ve found the perfect bike ride with your little one in tow. It’s just long enough to provide a bit of exercise for you but short enough to keep the little one happy while hangin’ in the trailer or bike seat. Park the car at Redmond’s Marymoor Park – we suggest parking by the playground to let them get the wiggles out prior to the ride. (There are also restrooms, a small Subway and picnic tables in this area).  Parking is $1. Then, load ’em up and hit the Sammamish River Trail heading North. If you keep up a good pace you can be in Woodinville in about 1/2 hour – 45 mins. If a shorter ride is in order, consider parking at 60 acres soccer fields instead (from Willows Road, turn down 116th) and hop on the trail from there, which will be a shorter ride; probably 20 mins – 1/2 hour.  Then, either pull over near the wineries for a lunch stop at Redhook Brewery (which has a kids menu and outdoor dining on nice days, might be packed at the lunch hour) or continue North just a few more minutes to Woodinville’s  Wilmot Gateway Park which has a playground with swings, picnic tables, and restrooms. (The trail runs right through the park so you can’t miss it!).

Of course, you can also do this ride in reverse by parking in Woodinville and riding to Marymoor!

Maybe Junior will even catch a zzzz in the trailer on the way home.
