We’ll pedal out of San Francisco and past a string of state beaches. En route, we’ll view unforgettable seascapes, inhale the salty essence of the Pacific, and ride through the farm country of Steinbeck’s Salinas Valley.
Beginning in Santa Monica, we’ll follow oceanside bike paths and ride through residential and industrial areas before rejoining the Pacific Coast Highway south of Los Angeles. From San Diego, we’ll take the Coronado Pedestrian-Bicycle Ferry to Coronado and follow a bike path along Silver Strand State Beach. If you’re not California dreamin’ yet, you will be after completing this amazing ride.
