Bicycling Magazine has named Seattle Cycling Tours' Bainbridge Island bike tour as one of the 10 best guided bicycle tours in the country.

The magazine praised "the hills and thrills of Bainbridge Island" on the five-hour tour, which actually begins in Seattle at the cycling company's offices on Pike Street and then continues after the ferry trip to the island.

Craig Scheak of Seattle Cycling Tours said the Bainbridge tour has been a big hit with riders.

"Our riders are astonished at the natural beauty that surrounds them as we peddle along the two-lane roads of Bainbridge making new discoveries around every corner, but our stops at Pane d’Amore on the island’s south end and the farmers market in Winslow certainly sweeten the experience," Scheak noted.

Other top-10 rides mentioned by Bicycling Magazine include the brewery tour in Portland, Oregon; the Hermit Road Grand Canyon Tour; the Los Angeles Taco Tour; and the New Orleans Culinary Bike Tour.
