Known for its palm-dotted Harbor Beach, the Californian coastal city of Oceanside is a magical place to enjoy a bike ride.
A seaside oasis of outdoor recreation, San Diego County’s northern-most coastal town attracts large numbers of visitors every year. One of the most popular activities is cycling, with the long promenade offering scenic Pacific views, soothing ocean breezes and plenty of photo opportunities along the way. If you’re coming to Oceanside and would like to rent a bike during your stay, here are three local companies we’d recommend.
Offering a variety of electric bikes from cruisers to city to mountain and fat tires, as well as an extensive offering of battery sizes, colours, and accessories, Pedego Oceanside are a renowned company operating out of their facility on North Meyers Street in the city centre. Their electric bike rentals make for a fun and easy outdoor activity that the entire family can enjoy, letting you cover lots of ground, while still getting an up close and personal look at all the scenery and attractions.
