America Finest Bike Ride
The Annual Bike the Bay offers only opportunity to bike the Coronado-San Diego Bay Bridge
On Sunday, August 27th, bike lovers of all levels and ages are encouraged to grab their bikes, helmets and friends to join several thousand of their neighbors for San Diego’s annual Bike the Bay ride.
It's a casual 25-mile ride experience that is guaranteed fun. It's the only opportunity to pedal across the world-renowned Coronado bridge for one of the county’s most breathtaking waterfront views, followed by a loop on the newly expanded Bayshore Bikeway. The Bayshore Bikeways remains,San Diego’s premiere bike attraction, winding through five San Diego neighborhoods — Coronado, San Diego. National City, Imperial Beach and Chula Vista.
The San Diego County Bike Coalition, host and beneficiary of Bike the Bay, organizes the event to encourage biking as a fun and efficient alternative to automobiles in what it says should be the premiere bicycling destination nationwide.
“Folks come from around the country come to Bike the Bay and experience San Diego’s magnificence on two wheels,” says Executive Director Andy Hanshaw. “Each year the ride gets increasingly popular, and we continue to see more families and children coming along for the quintessential summer ride.”
Registration, course maps and other information can be found at www.bikethebay.net. Registration is required and should be done as early as possible as previous years have sold out. A portion of Bike the Bay proceeds benefit the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, an organization advocating for and protecting the rights of all people who ride bicycles.
Be sure to get those bikes checked over or tuned up before the ride. Drop them off at any Bicycle Warehouse store so you can ride in style over the Coronado bridge. See you soon
