Pedal on to the picturesque Moonlight State Beach, iconic Encinitas Boat House and the serene gardens of the Self-Realization Fellowship. The Solana Beach E-Bike Tour includes bike rental and will round off with a ride through downtown Encinitas, passing the infamous Cardiff Kook statue, and Seaside Reef on your ride back to California’s most carefree coastal city.
Pedal along Highway 101 before cruising through the streets of Cedros Design District, an eclectic neighborhood where independent shops and art galleries line the streets. Even the streets themselves are transformed into art, with creative crosswalks at every intersection and murals on every wall. This guided tour will uncover the district's local gems, like Lofty Coffee, a cafe known for its great quality brews and relaxed atmosphere. If you take this city tour on a Sunday, you may smell the mouth-watering aromas of fresh bread, herbs and ripe fruit emanating from the local farmers' market that sets up every week along this strip.
Ride on to Del Mar and listen as your guide explains the area's enduring ties to horse racing. The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club is where surf meets turf in a world-renowned horse racing venue, and where locals head to watch a variety of fixtures. You'll pass by some of the most elegant homes and restaurants in this upmarket area, and your ride will always be accompanied by breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.
