OCEAN TRAILS TO CRYSTAL COVE - CASUAL BICYCLING - SOCIAL EXERCISE
10:00 –Ocean trails bicycle tour along the coast.
Haven’t ridden a bike in a while? Bike rentals are EZ, and our rides are great for first timers, shy people, and expert riders. Open for all levels but must have a basic level of fitness and be willing and able to ride as part of a supportive group. We are well organized, informal, and fun exercising while socializing.
We have scheduled stops along the way to ‘Group Up’ and hydrate. Bring any kind of bike or rent one. Bikes with gears are recommended. Are you ready for a beautiful fun day?
JUST SHOW UP
If this seems too challenging or uncertain – just come and do the first part. This is how the ride is designed. The point is to get out and show up for social exercise in the beauty of where we live. (EZ Bike Rentals – see end of post)
A MICRODOSING LIFE RIDE.
If you are in a hurry to get somewhere – this is not the ride for you because the journey IS the destination.
We plan the ride you bring the enthusiasm.
- Meet New People
- Be outdoors and by the ocean.
HISTORY OF OCEAN BIKE TOURS
We have led over 300 bike tours over recent years on bike paths, side roads and paved trails (No PCH) along the ocean from Laguna Beach to the Queen Mary. Meet new friends, like-minded people, exercise and enjoy the beauty of where we live. Please read the entire post.

We will stop at an oasis at Crystal Cove shopping center for a picnic in a shaded veranda. No bike lock needed. Park our bikes and go get food and return to eat together. Trader Joe’s – Starbucks – Pizza – other healthy carryout places to choose from or pack your picnic with you.
