Epic Ride: California Coast

Nothing beats sightseeing via bicycle, and the California coastline is the perfect place to stockpile some miles heading into 2015.

If you’re like us, nothing beats sightseeing via bicycle, and the California coastline is the perfect place to stockpile some miles heading into the 2015 season. Senior Editor Jené Shaw rode around 375 miles from San Francisco to Santa Barbara last weekend—as did groups of others on an organized but unofficial journey—and snapped these shots along the way.

Want to tackle this must-do ride on your own? Versions of the routes are easy to find by Googling “Strava Coast Ride,” or you could pay a SAG service (we love Sag Monkey) or sign up for one of many charity rides here or here.
