Bike the Bay

Enjoy San Diego’s best views during Bike the Bay on August 27. The fun, non-competitive ride is a mostly flat 25 miles along the waterfront, across the Coronado Bridge, and through our neighborhoods before ending with a festival of food & music. It’s a great outing for any rider over the age of 10.

The ride starts in Embarcadero Marina Park and follows the Bayshore Bikeway to pass through Coronado, Imperial Beach, Chula Vista, and National City. You can start at 7am or sleep in a little longer to start at 8am. You’ll want to bring a water bottle, but there are plenty of rest stops along the way with food and drinks to refuel you. The post-ride festival, back in Embarcadero Marina Park, includes music, food trucks, and a beer garden. There’s even a VIP area.

You’ll get a special medal from the event, plus a photographer documenting your progress across the Coronado Bridge! You can also purchase a jersey or hat to commemorate your participation.

Free bike rentals at Best Western Plus Island Palms mean it’s no problem finding 2 wheels for the ride. After the event, work out any soreness in your legs with an easy stroll along the waterfront paths at Best Western Plus Island Palms Hotel. You can also treat your legs to a soak in our hot tub or take advantage of our massage services. Dinner at the Blue Wave Bar & Grill is a great choice to relax at the end of the day. Make your reservation and enjoy a bike ride around San Diego.
