This past weekend John’s best friend Matt was in town visiting and seeing the sites of San Diego. Since it was his first time in San Diego and on the west coast, John and I showed him a bunch of our favorite local sites and food spots. Aside from our usual visitor activities though, this time we decided to rent beach cruisers and ride through the nearby beach towns. It was such a blast!
We rented bikes at a place called Surf Monkey in Pacific Beach, but there are dozens of other bike rental spots throughout the beach towns. We explored Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Mission Bay, and ended with Ocean Beach before heading back to our starting point in PB. It was SO fun! I’d highly recommend the experience.
We biked for four hours total, and traveled over 12 miles! Although we went a pretty far distance, it was really relaxing and enjoyable. We pretty much cruised the whole time except for at the end when we were speeding back to the rental place to return the bikes before 5:30 PM. It was a great way for Matt to get a vibe of all the different beaches, and renting bikes to cruise through the beach towns has been on our bucket list for quite some time now!
Since we had such a great time, John and I want to rent bikes again in the near future and cruise around on another gorgeous day. Do you have any suggestions of places that would be fun to bike? Have you ever rented bikes and taken a similar trip through the beach towns? Let us know in the comments below!
