San Diego Bay Bike Route

The San Diego Bay Bike Route is a delightful 24-mile, 2.5-hour ride with no significant hills. Most of it runs along bike lanes or separated bike paths. The scenery is rich and varied.

A ten-mile stretch along south and west sides of San Diego Bay follows the former Coronado Branch of the San Diego and Arizona Eastern Railroad. The rails are still visible in some places.

The official name of this route is the Bayshore Bikeway. This name appears on newer signs in some places along the route. The name "Bay Route Bikeway" appears on some older signs, although this name has been disparaged because it is homophonic with "Beirut bikeway".­

Around Mission Bay

An easy 14-mile ride around scenic Mission Bay, mostly on separated bike paths. Good views of the ocean and the bay. Several optional side trips. The recently completed bike path on the south shore of Mission Bay makes this ride better than ever.­

This ride is a 37-mile scenic loop through the mountains east of San Diego, California. The hills are moderate.­

Peñasquitos and Highway 56 Loop

This is a moderately hilly 20-mile road ride around Peñasquitos Canyon and along Highway 56 through McGonigle Canyon. It should take slightly less than two hours.­

Mission Bay to Cabrillo National Monument

A fairly easy 10-mile bike ride from Mission Bay to Cabrillo National Monument. The hills are gentle and the views are terrific.­

San Diego County Century Ride­

Julian Perimeter Ride

A scenic and challenging ride around the mountain community of Julian, California.­

Mountain Biking Around Poway­

Pamo Valley and Black Canyon (Ramona)

This 20-mile ride through Pamo Valley and Black Canyon north of Ramona affords some magnificent views. About half of the ride runs along unpaved roads.

There are several side trips of varying length.­

Florida Canyon in Balboa Park

The Florida Canyon area of Balboa Park (on both sides of Florida Drive) contains approximately five miles of mountain bike and hiking trails, of varying difficulty.­

Mission Trails Regional Park

A map of the trails in part of Mission Trails Regional Park, drawn to scale and superimposed over a topographic map. Updated from time to time as trails are surveyed. Bicycles are allowed on most trails.


Some of the info may be a few years old so check for updated info on the web as far as new trails & roads, changes to existing roads and trails, etc.

Thanks and a tip of the bicycle helmet to Philip J. Erdelsky for the above links
