Coronado Bike Trip
Coronado Bike Trip
Saturday, September 23
9:00am - 4:00pm
This is a new trip designed to offer participants a relaxed day cruising around Coronado Island. Coronado, though not actually an island but a peninsula, is situated in the middle of San Diego Bay. It offers gorgeous views of the city from different angles and is a resort destination to tourists as well as a weekend paradise to locals. During the course of this trip we will pass by the historical landmark Hotel Del Coronado, Naval bases where Navy SEALs are trained, unique shops on Orange Ave., and of course the beach!
About the Trip & Itinerary
The group will meet at 9:00am in the ARC on PLNU campus, do some introductions and then load into the vans! It is approximately a 30 minute drive to Coronado Island and over the beautiful Coronado Bridge. Once at the bike trail, we will unload the bikes and the group will take a few minutes to use the restrooms if needed, refill water bottles and prepare for the 6 mile ride around the island. After about an hour of riding, we will stop and eat our sacked lunch provided by the cafeteria at either a park or the beach. For the rest of our ride we will stop occasionally for historic landmarks, dips in the ocean and a game of beach volleyball. After we’ve completed the loop, an optional ice-cream run is definitely deserved! (Bring money if you want one!) Expect to be back at PLNU by 4:00pm.
Price >> $15.00
We will be taking the Bayshore Trail and then connect to the Coronado Bike Trail, overall adding up to be 6 miles. This route is completely paved, moderately flat and perfect for beginner bikers. The group will go at a safe leisurely speed, taking breaks at landmarks and even walking through high trafficked areas. The guides will determine the speed based on the group.
