Intro

The 16-mile ride down Point Loma Peninsula is moderately strenuous and a great workout on rolling hills. You will have breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay.

What Makes It Great

At the end of the peninsula is Cabrillo National Monument, which has many historical sites, whale watching opportunities, and tidal pools. You can make connections to Sunset Cliffs, Ocean Beach, Mission Bay Park, and Liberty Station from Catalina Boulevard. There are bike lanes along most of the roads, but some can be rather busy. Stay alert and be on the lookout for cars. Enjoy cycling on Point Loma Peninsula!

Who is Going to Love It

This is a fun bike ride for all levels, though it's absolutely perfect for intermediate riders. There are some good hills, great views, and ending at Cabrillo National Monument is a nice conclusion to your ride (or a half-way point if ridden as an out and back).
