Recycled also has a second location in Freemont.
Similar to the Bikery is Bikeworks in Columbia City

Wow, these are exactly the answers I am looking for. I am planning to do the same and switch from backpacking to cycling. Thank you all! I will definitely check out Recycled Cycles.

Hello Fellow CSer

A friend and I will be coming to Seattle and driving to Portland and around the area Jan 13-22. We are hoping to get a bunch of skiing in. Was wondering if anyone could recommend which ski spots we should definitely check out. As well as sites or places to find deals on lift tickets. If anyone is keen on joining us for a ski day anyone is welcome.
WE will probably be looking for cheap places to stay in cool recommended areas

Thanks for your time and have a great day!

Crystal is beautiful, some of the better snow in the PNW, and there are beginner runs. Also, if you want to stay in Tacoma, which gets a bad rap but has a new hotel being built on the waterfront and lots of good food and bars there and on 6th Ave, you can get to Crystal in about an hour.

What is the skill level required?

Crystal Mountain is about 3 hours south of the city depending on traffic and road conditions. Great mountain. Mt Baker is pretty close to the same (maybe a little less) time/distance to the north. Also a great mountain.

Stevens Pass is good and close, but road just shut down indefinitely... sad for this season. Alpental & Snoqualmie are very close, maybe only 90 minutes east, but in my opinion not as good quality.

I think most of the best deals on passes (multi day etc) are for residents only but I haven't looked into that for a while so sorry I can't answer that part as well.

Enjoy the snow! This season is supposed to be awesome after the last couple dismal years... and I'm off driving to South America instead...

Hi all,
I will be traveling to Seattle April 28-May 2nd with my parents. It is their 30th anniversary on Sunday May 1st so I'd like to surprise them with something romantic for them to do while I go off and do my own thing. Never been to Washington before so I'm hoping I can get some recommendations. Thanks!!

Get a free public boat sail at The Center for Wooden Boats https://cwb.org/events/cast-off/ ? Volunteers sail you around Lake Union for an hour in a small boat (with some other people who signed up).

You do have to show up at or before 10am (depending on how many people line up) on that Sunday to sign up though. Since it's supposed to be romantic for your parents I presume you should be the one who show up early to sign up for them…

Take the cruise or Kenmore Air seaplane to Friday Harbor.

The ferry out to Bainbridge Island would also be good. Downtown Bainbridge is a great little harbor town good for roaming around in, tons of great restaurants as well. :)

Hello! My boyfriend, our two best friends, and myself are hoping to visit Seattle for Labor Day weekend. We want to walk all over the city, drink strong coffee, eat locally crafted yum-yums, drink micro beers, dance to live music and soak in as much of the Seattle culture possible. We tried booking a hostel and absolutely EVERYTHING is sold out. I've never seen such a lack of availability. Does that mean Labor Day isn't the best time to visit Seattle? We don't mind crowds of people, but we were hoping to have a relaxing and enjoyable time. Is Labor Day weekend the busiest tourism period for Seattle? Please let me know. Thank you!

You wont be able to get hostel reservations, so scratch that out right now. I know other couch surfers cant even get them now, 2mnths in advance. Im amazed people still think they can just fly in on short notice and be shocked everything is sold out. PAX, bumpershoot, cruise ships!

SHOCKING I tell ya. Your best bet is to suck it up and pay 350.00 a night downtown, or stay in the silvercloud on broadway in capitol hill, best of both worlds http://www.silvercloud.com/seattlebroadway/

Easy access ~5min to all the restaurants and nightlife, and also easy 15min walk to heart of downtown.

Perhaps you could try staying somewhere that has availability that is a bit further from the city? Everywhere will probably be busy, but you will have more accommodation choices and the ability to take public transportation. As far as quiet though, it probably won't happen any weekend in the summer in Seattle or nearby cities, but it isn't going to be extremely chaotic just busy.
