Top 3 Beach Bike Paths In Northern California

There is no doubt that Northern California is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. The lush green scenery, the sparkling Pacific, the woodsy surroundings, the abundant lakes and rivers, and the bustling urban cities all make it a gem. One of the best ways to relish in NorCal’s beauty is undoubtedly by experiencing it on a vintage beach cruiser. Whether you prefer to ride along the beach, in the city, or inside the woods, there are plenty of bike paths to enjoy on a beach cruiser.

Here are a few recommendations so you can embark on your next journey with your classic beach cruiser:

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreational Trail

From start to finish, the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail provides scenic views for you to enjoy on a classic beach cruiser. The trail stretches 18 miles from Pacific Grove to Castorville, offering a glimpse of the many communities along the trail. You can catch the trail-head near the corner of Ocean View Blvd and Jewell Ave if you wish to start from the beginning of the trail. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous or energized along the way, there are water sport rentals, such as kayak, fishing, and diving for you to enjoy the Pacific. Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the Museum of Monterey are also all along the trail for families to experience. Make sure to bring a camera, the views are insanely beautiful. Or, live in the now and appreciate nature’s gifts on your cruiser.


American River trail Sacramento (The Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail)

Hugging the American River, the trail stretches a total of 32 miles between Discovery Park, in Old Sacramento, and ends in Folsom’s Lake’s banks at Beal’s Point. There are several entrances to get to Discover Park where you will find the trail-head. Along the ride, you may find inline skaters, horseback riders, leisure bicycles, joggers, and pedestrians sharing the path with you. This trail is perfect for your furry friend to enjoy on a rear pet carrier until you reach the water where they can wade.


Golden Gate Bridge

There’s no better way to have fun and move freely through San Francisco than on a vintage beach cruiser. If you want to see landmarks, get a different perspective of the city, and be immersed in the city’s energy, then you will enjoy the 8 mile path. The trail starts at the East Sidewalk on the bridge and ends in Sausalito, giving riders the ability to check out many neighborhoods along the way. Consider visiting the Palace of Fine Arts, Crissy Field, Fisherman’s Wharf, Marina Green, Embarcadero, or Aquatic Park during your ride.
