Discover the beauty and charm of La Jolla and the San Diego coastline on this 2.5-hour bike tour. Suitable for most biking abilities (some experience is recommended), the tour takes you from the top of Mt Soledad with its panoramic views down to the cliffs of La Jolla and the surf breaks of Pacific Beach. See La Jolla’s local seals and tide pools, enter one of the sea caves and learn about the marine life and protected shoreline from a local naturalist guide.
Meet your guide at the local bike tour office in La Jolla, where you’ll be fitted for a Bianchi hybrid bike. Then hop in the tour vehicle for the short drive to your starting point at the top of Mt Soledad, the highest coastal peak in the San Diego area.

Admire the 360-degree view of the city and coastline, and then strap on your provided helmet and take off, zooming down the mountain as fast (or as slow) as you want. Ride about 3.5 miles (5.5 km) toward the ocean, soaking up La Jolla’s quaint atmosphere and picturesque scenery.

When you get to the coast, stop at La Jolla sea caves, where you can hop off your bike and enter the only cave accessible by land, Sunny Jim’s, reached by a tunnel known as the Cave Store. Then head to the Children’s Pool and seal beach to check out the town’s famous harbor seals. Enjoy a stunning photo op from the 100-foot (30-meter) bluffs overlooking La Jolla Cove and Ecological Reserve, and take a look at the marine life in the tide pools.

Continue your bike tour by pedaling south to San Diego’s popular surf breaks at Pacific Beach and Mission Beach. Then head back to your starting point via quiet back roads, soaking up the laid-back ambience of San Diego’s beach communities.

Total biking distance is approximately 10 miles (16 km); the pace is not strenuous and the terrain is mostly downhill or flat, but you will pedal over a few short hills (you can get off and walk if needed).

Such a great time! Our guide was amazing! She was fun, patient and knew more of the history of the area than people who have lived there all of their lives. Highly recommend the whole experience.

Exhilarating trip down a high coastal peak. Some small hills that took a little effort, but nothing too strenuous. Very knowledgeable, educated local guide.
