If you’re an urban cyclist and you’re visiting San Diego, California, don’t forget to visit Mission Bay. It’s a good place to bike around. When we visited, we saw a lot of bike shops that rented out bikes, mostly beach cruisers. The bike ride was 8KM, about an hour ride on a really slow pace. While pedaling we encountered a lot of people jogging, walking, and also biking along the pedestrian/bike lane. The entire stretch was lined with beach houses and patios where people just hung out. We aslo saw a lot of families getting together, swimming, playing on the beach, children running around, people walking their dogs, etc.
Typical Beach Cruiser Bike Rental Rates:
- $5.00 – per hour
- $9.00 – Full Day
- $15.00 – Over night (up to 24 hours)
- $32.00 – 4 Days
- $49.00 – Full Week (7-days)
If I were in San Diego again, I’d definitely go back to Mission Bay.
