If you enjoy bike riding along a river/ocean inlet with occasional seal lions and turtles, then this is a great place for you. Paved and generally uncrowded, it can't get better than this. When you're done riding, enjoy a meal at the many nearby restaurants.

The SG River bike trail is a very pleasant and easy trail to navigate. The scenery and birds you may see along the way are such a delight. Generally, you can meet very nice and helpful people along the way...It's best to plot your map...More
