Is there anything better than spending time with family? Enjoy all that nature has to offer by hopping on an bike. To celebrate your love, try something new and fun! A bike ride is the perfect way to spend time together and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Schedule your ride for a day where your love can be celebrated and you have time to create incredible memories together.
Cycling is a great way to stay active and a great way to bond with your partner.
Not only is it a fun and enjoyable activity, but it's also good for your health. Plan a scenic route through your local park or nature trail and make it a romantic date. Pack a picnic lunch, or plan a stop at your favorite restaurant along the way to enjoy it together. If you can't ride on VD, then together plan a great adventure of a scenic ride, a bike packing trip or bike tour trip. The biking together possibilities are endless.
Cycling gifts - Way better than chocolate & roses!
Gift-giving is also a big part of Valentine's Day. If your significant other is a cyclist, there are plenty of cycling-related gifts you can give them. A new bike for him or a new bike for her are a great way to express love for each other. Another option is bike accessories; a fancy set of wheels is a great gift, bike lights or bike bag. Additionally, consider buying them a new helmet, cycling jersey or a pair of cycling shorts. These gifts are functional and will be appreciated by both men and woman cyclists.
Another idea to keep in mind is a weekend cycling trip or a bike tour package as a gift. It can be a romantic getaway, where you can enjoy together the nature, culture, and food of a new place while cycling together.
San Diego is our home and there are lots of options for a couples day out riding. Check out some of these favorites:
Mission Bay Bike Rides / La Jolla Bike Rides
Biking around Mission Bay or along the Mission Beach Boardwalk is the quintessential San Diego cycling experience. La Jolla, the Crown of San Diego biking. Coastal views (with sea lions and harbor seals too), sweeping vistas from Torrey Pines State Park and Mt Soledad.
Below Mission Bay are the San Diego River, Ocean Beach, and Point Loma. The river offers easy access to the interior along paved and protected trails. Ocean Beach has a hippy vibe that’s the counterpoint upscale La Jolla. From the Point Loma vistas, you just see whales completing their Mexican migration. It’s a little of everything that biking in San Diego offers.
Mission Beach Loop
Start your visit at Bonita Cove across the road from Belmont Park Head bayside south to get warmed up. It’s mellow riding with spectacular bay views. The boardwalk opens up to see the guesthouses on Crystal Pier. By the time you reach Law Street Beach, you’ll be feeling the flow. Be sure to stop for a while at the bluffs and watch the local surfers catch their sets. Head inland across Pacific Beach and return to the bay at Fanuel Park.
This section of Mission Bay, called Sail Bay, has a bay-wide no-wake zone. Watercraft of every description utilize this aquatic oasis.
Mission Bay to Downtown San Diego Bike Route
Start from Bonita Cove again and work your way over to Ocean Beach. There is an option to take the trails into Liberty Station for the food court, Stone Brewery, or Slater’s 50/50 Burgers for a snack. The Maritime Museum has a pair of tall ships and a Russian submarine, but the USS Midway aircraft carrier dominates all vessels in the harbor. The best view of the Midway is from the Unconditional Surrender Statue. We recommend taking a kissing selfie here!
