We enjoyed riding bikes we rented at our hotel on several occasions along Cabrillo. Motorists are mostly very accommodating. We stayed at the Hyatt, which is at the east end of Cabrillo, so riding bikes west to State street, Stern's Wharf, waterfront, restaurants and shops...More

You can start this bike ride from near the zoo. It parallels the ocean for most of its length. It's hard to keep your eyes on the path since the ocean views are great. It problem is that the bike path is not long enough.

The view of Ledbetter beach, the ocean, the islands, Shoreline park and the unique homes along this iconic bike path is without peer. It's a pretty long hill heading up towards the Mesa but a great and popular workout.

When we are in the area, we get up early every morning and run/walk along the bike path. It is a wonderful way to begin our daily adventures.

This is a wonderful experience to enjoy with children of all ages. Rent a "group" type family bike and take grandparents along. Not for city streets, but this bike path is safe and fun.

Hop on a bike and enjoy the view of the beach, ocean and sailboats. Make sure you stop at the Shoreline Cafe for drinks at the end of the day.

This is a wonderful investment. Thank you Santa Barbara. My guess is that it approximately three miles long.
