San Diego Mountain Biking Association - Event Information
12th Annual Bike the Bay with Off Road Option
Ride the bridge, Bike the Bay! On Sunday, August 25, 2019 cruise around the San Diego Bay and enjoy your only opportunity to ride across the San Diego Coronado Bay Bridge. This non-competitive community bike ride is for riders of all abilities and will take you on a scenic, and primarily flat ride, around the San Diego Bay via the Bayshore Bikeway. Along the way, riders will travel through the surrounding cities of Coronado, Imperial Beach, Chula Vista and National City before finishing back at the start/finish line at Embarcadero Marina Park in downtown San Diego.
For the second year, SDMBA will host the off Road option of the ride with an 8 mile loop around the Otay Valley Regional Park. Mountain bikes or cross bikes recommended as there is gravel and loose dirt on this optional route. Proceeds from off road option go to SDMBA to help improve trail access for mountain biking around San Diego County.
Not only will the scenic 25-mile route travel through all five of these very diverse communities but it will also allow riders their only opportunity of the year to ride over the beautiful Coronado Bay Bridge. All riders will return to San Diego for a post-ride festival with food, beverage, beer garden and entertainment.
