Bainbridge and Kitsap

Trying out a faster cadence.

  1. This trip came in three parts, with ferries separating them.  (The below distance is excluding the gaps (ferry rides); I checked to make sure.)
  2. Part One: Getting to the ferry in the first place.  I left at about 05:00 to make it to the 06:10 Bainbridge Island ferry departure with plenty of time to spare (the routing along the waterfront is pretty confusing right now due to the construction).  One of the employees also rode in, and we chatted a bit.  A couple more also proved knowledgeable about bicycles, and we discussed rear racks.

  5. I went up to the passenger deck for a little addition to the food I brought, and came across this new (2005) Pac-Man machine.

  7. Part Two: Bainbridge Island and Kitsap Peninsula.  This primarily involved riding along the shoulders of the highways in the area, as other surface streets were a bit more scarce than in Seattle.

  9. I didn't spend much time on Bainbridge, though: I headed straight for Agate Pass to the peninsula.

  14. Throughout this entire section of the ride, I was going up and down rolling hills of varying degrees of steepness.  Also, after passing over Agate Pass, I didn't get much mobile phone reception until getting to Kingston.  (The below tweet was sent after I did get to Kingston.)
  15. An interesting little wrinkle of my route was how Google Maps told me to go under the State Route 3 interchange here, only to get on that same highway just nort of where it stopped being limited access.  The hill at the southern part of this was one of the steeper ones.

  17. Next up: where SR-3 ends at SR-104, just southeast of the Hood Canal Bridge.
