What is the San Diego River Bike Path?
The San Diego River Bike Path is a scenic route that stretches from Old Town San Diego to the beach. It offers a picturesque journey along the San Diego River, perfect for sightseeing and capturing beautiful photos. Check out the video below to see the route.
Why Choose an E-bike with a Hub Drive Motor?
For this ride, we used the FLX Babymaker II belt drive e-bike with a hub drive motor. E-bikes provide an extra boost of power, making it easier to navigate through different terrains. The hub drive motor offers a smooth and efficient ride, ensuring a comfortable journey, and with the stealth, sleek look of the Babymaker, the only way people will know it's an e-bike is how fast and effortlessly you're riding.
Starting Point: Old Town San Diego
Begin your adventure in the historic district of Old Town San Diego. Explore the charming streets filled with colorful buildings, unique shops, and delicious Mexican cuisine. Don't forget to take a few photos to capture the essence of this vibrant neighborhood.
Following the San Diego River Bike Path
Once you're ready, hop on your e-bike and follow the San Diego River Bike Path. This well-maintained trail runs alongside the river, providing a peaceful and scenic route. Enjoy the tranquility of nature as you pedal your way towards the beach.
Scenic Stops Along the Way
As you ride along the bike path, you'll encounter several scenic spots worth stopping for. Take a break at the Mission Bay Park, a picturesque waterfront park offering stunning views of the bay. Capture the beauty of the surrounding nature and enjoy a peaceful moment.
Continue your journey and make a stop at the Ocean Beach Pier. This iconic landmark offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and is a perfect spot to snap some memorable photos. Take a stroll along the pier and soak in the refreshing ocean breeze.
