Perched on a peninsula in San Diego Bay, the city’s biggest draw is Coronado Beach which attracts huge numbers of surfers and sunbathers throughout the year. But another hugely popular activity is cycling, with more than 15 miles of dedicated bike paths, including the 24-mile Bayshore Bikeway, which loops around the bay, and the Silver Strand Bikeway multiuse path which runs along the spit connecting Coronado to Imperial Beach. If you need a bike rental in Coronado, here are two companies to seek out.

Paradise Trike Tours

Based out of the Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa, this renowned local company specialise primarily in three-wheeled — one in front, two in back— trikes, but also offer a wide range of e-bikes for travellers keen to explore the island and discover Coronado’s most unique spots. Among the most popular of their bike fleet is the Electra Townie Go! e-bike, which is easy, intuitive and fun to ride – not to mention powerful – but with all the comfort, control and style of the original Townie. As well as rentals, they also run a range of guided small-group bike tours around Coronado.
