Coronado Bike Rides

Feel the wind in your hair and enjoy scenic views in Coronado while riding bikes with your family. Follow the easy, flat path to zip under the Coronado Bridge, pedal around the golf course and hit the strand to take in iconic views like the Hotel Del Coronado and Coronado Beach. Coronado’s bike paths alternate between paths and residential streets––and locals are used to sharing the wide roads with cyclists. Bring your own bike for your riding adventure or rent one from the 9 bike rental shops around the island. You can even take your bike across on the ferry at Broadway Pier downtown, north of the USS Midway. Click here for ferry times and details. Tidelands Park is a great starting point. There is plenty of free parking, restrooms and picnic tables. It gets busy on the weekend, so come early and be patient with street parking.
