This 40 mile ride heads west from Gas Works Park on the north side of the Ship Canal to Golden Gardens Park. Then it's north through Blue Ridge to Edmonds along Puget Sound. Edmonds is the perfect lunch stop; try the Edmonds Bakery for a great sandwich and nice assortment of bakery items. Take your lunch down to Marine Park or to a small ridge on Sunrise which offers a nice view of the ferry terminal with Puget Sound and the Olympic Mts in the background.
Return via 9th Ave N which climbs steadily above Edmonds downtown. Continue south on 100th Ave W and then on 8th Ave NW. Then head east on 195th /185th (Note: after crossing Hwy 99 and the Interurban Trail on N 185th St there is a Starbucks in a small shopping center on your right should you need a caffeine fix) to Perkins Lane which offers a nice, fast descent to the Burke-Gilman Trail along Lake Washington.
