Annual Bike The Bay San Diego over the Coronado Bridge August 28, 2011
Once a year, the Coronado Bridge is open to bicyclists of all riding abilities. Bike the Bay San Diego is a 25-mile route that passes through the cities of Coronado, Imperial Beach, Chula Vista, National City and San Diego, and finishes at Embarcadero Marina Park South with a festive celebration with food, entertainment and a Karl Strauss beer garden.
The ride is flat with the exception of the gentle climb of the west bound Coronado Bridge. Then it’s downhill into Coronado. Enjoy the 7 mile stretch along Coronado’s Silver Strand with the Pacific Ocean on your right and San Diego Bay on your left. You will finish your journey nearby our Coronado hotel.
In 2010, more than 2,700 riders came out to support The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, www.sdcbc.org, — working to make bicycling better for all in San Diego. Be sure to register in advance at http://www.bikethebay.net/index.html.
FYI, the 1906 Lodge has secure underground parking for your bicycles! Our Coronado hotel is a great place to relax after a long day of biking around the gorgeous scenery.
