Suggestions for San Diego vacation rides....

Greetings all,

My wife and I will be spending the week of 7 March thru 15 March in the Mission Valley area of San Diego.

I am a recently returned road biker, 45 years old and a slow but enthusiastic fitness rider. I have a well set up and fitted Specialized Roubaix Expert.

My wife is a couple of years older, and recovering from some minor medical problems. She rides a "cruiser" bike a couple of times a week. We both work out at our local gym 3 to 4 hours a week and occasionally bicycle together.

Where around the San Diego area could we do some 30 to 60 minute leisurely rides that would not exhaust her? Lack of traffic and nice scenery are considerations. (I will be doing some other longer rides while she is enjoying various "spa" activities that I do not share in.

I will have the bike rack on the car, so travelling some distance to a nice ride is always an option.

Thanks in advance,

Tim Beghtol

Mission bay has about 30 or 40 miles of bike path. Here's one route you two would enjoy.

Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

If you want a really nice, fairly flat, and safe ride -- drive up past Oceanside, and get off on Pulgas Road. There you can park at the entrance to the old abandoned Hwy 101. You can take it all the way to San Clemente. If you're up for a little longer ride, you can take the streets through San Clemente ( a few hills, but not too difficult), and then take a nice stretch into Dana Point.

There is the bike path along the Silver Strand in Coronado. It starts near the Hotel Del Coronado and heads south to Imperial Beach for a nice out and back ride. You could alternatively take your bikes on the passenger ferry from the SD waterfront near the cruise ship terminal to Coronado and follow the bike path/lanes through Coronado to connect to the Silver Strand Path. The section the goes through Coronado itself is in residential areas and is pretty low traffic.
