Bike the Bay 8/28 takes riders on a 25-mile route through diverse San Diego neighborhoods, plus a ride over the Coronado Bridge . There's no competition, just the chance to enjoy beautiful scenery along the Bayshore Bikeway and benefit the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition.
Bike Around the Bay Route
The ride starts in Embarcadero Marina Park in downtown San Diego. From there, riders of all ages can enjoy the mostly flat route that passes through Coronado, Imperial Beach, Chula Vista and National City. Riders get to pedal across the Coronado Bridge, which is normally off limits. Riders can celebrate their accomplishment at the finish line festival, with a beer garden, food and other beverages, plus entertainment. There'll be an official photograph to document your participation!
You Can Do It!
The event starts early, so you'll beat the heat that comes later in the day, plus rest stops along the route with snacks and drinks (and bicycle repair, which hopefully you won't need). You'll get a stainless steel water bottle to take your hydration with you. Bring your bike helmets; the safety gear is mandatory. Forgot to pack your bike?

Start and End Your Day Feeling Refreshed
The Best Western Plus Island Palms is only 7 miles away from the starting line, so you'll be able to get plenty of sleep the night before the event and have all the energy you need to get through those 25 miles. After the ride, come back and get out of your sweaty clothes, and then relax on our beautiful waterfront property or head back out for more sightseeing. We're close to all the wonderful sights of San Diego.
