Bike the Bay takes cyclists through five county neighborhoods

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Grab your bike and join more than 3,500 San Diegans for the 8th Annual Bike The Bay on August 23, 2015.

Bike the Bay presents an opportunity for folks of all bicycling levels to pedal through five San Diego neighborhoods at a casual pace. The neighborhoods include Coronado, San Diego, National City, Imperial Beach and Chula Vista.

It's the only opportunity to pedal across the renowned San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge followed by a loop on the famed Bayshore Bikeway, which is a 25-mile ride.

The San Diego County Bike Coalition, a host and beneficiary of Bike the Bay, organizes the event to encourage biking as a fun and efficient alternative to automobiles in what it says should be the premiere bicycling destination nationwide.

“San Diego has potential to become the quintessential place to ride a bike, nationwide,” Andy Hanshaw, Executive Director of the Bike Coalition, said.

The event begins with two waves of riders, one at 7 a.m. and another at 8a.m., at Embarcadero Marina Park South on Harbor Drive in San Diego.
