Bike the Coast

One important thing to note about Bike the Coast: It’s not a race. The fourth annual cycling event on November 2 is designed to be accessible for all skill levels, with optional 7-, 15-, 25-, 50-, and 100-mile coastal routes that begin and end on the beach at Oceanside Pier. Bike the Coast is the brainchild of event director and Del Mar resident Jim Curl, whose experience in planning triathlons and other cycling events taught him that there was a need for less challenging, family-friendly rides. This year, Bike the Coast is expected to draw a record number of 2,500 participants. Proceeds will benefit the San Diego Bicycle Coalition through the accompanying Taste the Coast festival at the finish line, which is bigger and better than ever. Cyclists can expect a newly expanded beer garden and additional food vendors serving up breakfast burritos, sweet and savory crêpes, handmade pizza, street tacos, and more. There’ll also be live music and a health and fitness expo presented by Tri-City Medical Center. Happy riding!
