San Diego & Mission Bay Bike Tour

Riding in Mission Bay and San Diego Bay you'll cover a lot of ground "among the best" of San Diego's fun, beauty and history. We start on the back side of Lindbergh International Airport in historical Naval Training Center San Diego reincarnated into Liberty Station. From there, we'll cross the San Diego River into the middle of Mission Bay and Vacation Island. From there circle north, then west, and then south, through Mission Beach, the boardwalk and the Ocean before crossing the river into Point Loma. From Point Loma we make an out and back run on Shelter Island and Harbor Island to see both the opening and a full length view of San Diego Bay, its surrounding cities and landmarks. Finally we turn back to where we took off, the back side of the airport, Liberty Station.

Why You'll Love this Tour


For iconic scenery, this is a great tour of San Diego. Starting at Liberty Station, formerly Naval Training Center (NTC) San Diego, (with history so rich, it has a self guided walking tour) we cruise and absorb as we go before exiting north and climbing a small hill to Loma Portal where we're treated to a panoramic view of both bays and a snapshot of today's entire ride. Then we head across the San Diego River and land in Mission Bay, the hub of San Diego outdoor activities and beauty all around. Without leaving the Bay we ride through Pacific Beach, and the famed Mission Beach Boardwalk on the Pacific Ocean. We continue for another crossing of the River plus a few pedal strokes and find ourselves at Shelter Island where we "rediscover" the entrance to the San Diego Bay and our Portuguese heritage. Followed by Harbor Island and its iconic view of the Bay, the Bridge and two cities, laid out before us in postcard fashion and a final memory of a wonderful day riding in San Diego. From there we have a short trip back to Liberty Station to close out the ride and decide what to do next.

What to Expect:

This is an easy convenient route with a big agenda. With short mileage and negligible climbs this scenic tour is easy for a novice rider with regular fitness and enjoyable also by the experienced rider who wants to discover the City. The ride has some traffic in spots and several turns, but this is eased by the flat terrain and good bike lanes, paths, and road surfaces over the entire route,

We typically stop at a cafe bakery in Liberty Station near the end of the ride. Two easy climbs and big time scenery make this the premiere take-it-all-in ride.


In a somewhat short ride with minimal climbing you'll explore Pacific Beach, Mission Bay, Point Loma, San Diego Bay, Harbor Island and Liberty Station for a bit of local history.
