Nice and Long places for family ride
I have been in San Diego for quite sometime but I still can't find a place where my daughter, wife and I can go for a long bike ride it's usually just 2.5 miles one way and then we have to turn back 'cause we get into traffic. I'm looking for a place where I can pull my daughter behind me and yet still ride at least 20 or so miles. Please help me out I'm in Santee, so anything close would be great.
I used to live in Santee, but that was ~20 years ago and I have not been back in 15 years. It had changed alot in that time, I can't imagine what it looks like now.
A buddy took me out a few times but it was to an area I am guessing NE of Santee. I know we were into horse country. It was very nice and alot of options to make rides varying lengths. Around Balboa Park was nice, but it was not very big. La Jolla was nice, but hilly. I always liked the ride through Mission Trails Park but it was only about 1 mile long and no options to make loops through the park. I never got out to Lake Jennings Park, but maybe that is an option. Sorry, it has just been too long for me to remember, plus it may no longer be useful.
A good option other than this board would be a good local bike shop and even better would be a local bike club. I was only there temporarily so I did not join any to give you a club name.
1. Ferry (or drive) over to Coronado; car-free bike bath
2. Also Mission Bay park (loops but don't know how long), car-free especially on weekends
