Summer is the best time to enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze. This time we’ll do the scenic version of the world famous ride (in my mind it is, yes!) to Capitola. Cliff Drive is one way towards Capitola, so the solution is to take the bike path, which can be crowded, but has a fun California beach vibe.


The weather is going to be perfect.

It’s at East Cliff Drive that we transition to the bike path.

We’ll ride on the multi-use path on the left, weaving in between pedestrians, etc, because Cliff Drive is one way towards Capitola.  This isn’t exactly race training, but it is fun and scenic.

What makes this route is the secret passage through a bike path Buena Vista Ave, to emerge on S Branciforte Ave.  Be on the lookout for that path.
