San Diego Mountain Biking Association - Event Information

Event Name:15th Annual Bike the Bay with Off Road Option
Event Type(s):Sponsor/Partner Event

Ride the bridge, Bike the Bay! On Sunday, August 28, 2022  cruise around the San Diego Bay and enjoy an 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 with the option of an 8 mile Off Road ramble through the Otay Valley Regional Park, before finishing back at the start/finish line at Embarcadero Marina Park in downtown San Diego.

For the fourth year, SDMBA will host the off Road option of the ride with an 8 mile loop around the Otay Valley Regional Park.  Mountain bikes, gravel or cross bikes with knobbier tires recommended as there is gravel and loose dirt on this optional route.  Proceeds from off road option ($10 Donation) 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.


If you are interested in volunteering as a course marshal for the Off Road Option or in the Beer Garden at the finish,  please email Karen St. Germain, SDMBA Volunteer coordinator.
