    Rentals near Duthie Hill

    Heading to Washington in May. While I'm visiting told my buddy I would take him out for some fun riding.

    Duthie Hill looks like a good option.

    Are there any rental shops close enough to rent and ride to Duthie (in a timely manner) from the shop? Obviously since Im traveling I will be without a truck to transport the bikes.

    Appreciate your time and any info provided!

    Pacific Bicycle in Sammamish has demos of a few Specialized bikes, maybe others. You can ride to Duthie via road and Soaring Eagle Park, probably about 2.5 miles of road to Soaring Eagle, then through Soaring Eagle on single track to another road ride to the Duthie parking lot of about 1.5 miles.

    Kirkland Bikes (kirkland Bicycle Bike Shop Bicycles) isn't super close, but I bet you could catch a bus from there to near Duthie, then just ride a couple miles further to the park.

    Hope that helps!

    Things Duthie needs nearby...

    Bike rental/service location
    Taco Truck
    Beer Garden
    Clear directions to Grand Ridge

    Not necessarily in that order. But, all would be nice in the new big parking lot...

    And if you need a ride, let me know. I have ample free time and if it fits in my schedule, I can probably give you a lift. I live not too far from Duthie and Soaring Eagle, as well as Tokul and Tiger. Tiger, which opens up the MTB trails tomorrow (4 April) BTW.

    Wow, totally awesome of you to offer the ride.

    I will be in WA on May1st, and plan to ride Friday the 3rd to introduce my buddy to the joys of biking.

    I would be more than happy to buy you a beer, burger, lapdance, whatev your enjoyment is if you are able to help us out with a quick lift. Always fun to ride with others too.

    I will shoot you a PM as the date draws close

    I hope I can help you out. I will be out of town on 4-5 May though, but the 3rd I should be able to help out.
