I'm going to the San Diego convention center tomorrow; it's too far to bike round trip from north county, but I was thinking it might be nice to park a little ways out, pull the bike out of the car and ride the rest of the way.
Any suggestions for where to park the car for a nice ride to the convention center and back? I'm thinking maybe about 3-7mi each way. Scenic would be good. Super-city traffic would not be so good. Flatter would be better than hillier, but it's not that important as the destination is at sea level, so the sweating would only be after the meeting. Free parking would be a plus, but it's not that important, as work will reimburse. (But free would save me some paperwork)
Also I've never noticed what the bike parking situation is at the convention center; do they have racks with other bikes, hopefully monitored by security guards? I'm used to rolling my bike into my cube and never having to worry about thieves!
