Effective December 1, 2022 we will be discontinuing our bicycle tour program to focus on our kayak tours.

Itinerary Description

Our Avila Beach See Canyon half day bike tour is our easiest and most family friendly bike tour in SLO County (minimum age 12). It’s a diverse tour with a great combination of bike paths and scenic roads with coastal views, watchable wildlife and a few wineries as well. Our relatively easy cycling route starts at the trailhead for the Bob Jones City to the Sea Bike Trail and follows a scenic creekside bike path all the way to the picturesque seaside town of Avila Beach. Bicycling a short distance further along a classic beachside road, we come to Harford Pier, where local fishermen offer us their catch and sea lions cavort under the pier. Retracing part of our cycling route inland, you'll detour up See Canyon to Kelsey See Canyon Winery for a gourmet picnic lunch while listening to peacocks. After lunch, it’s a short ride back back downhill and along the bike trail to the end of the tour. The cycling is relatively easy with much of it along a dedicated bike path and there are many non-winery attractions along the way. With so much to see and do in such a compact area, Avila Beach is truly an ideal destination for casual cyclists.

Comparison to Other Bike Tours

The Biking: Avila See Canyon Half Day bike tour is a great combination of coastal and inland riding and is great for families and adult groups. If you are still looking for a relatively easy bike tour, but want more of a wine country focus, Biking: Paso Robles Wineries Half Day bike tour is our easiest wine country bike tour, but it is not located particularly near Avila Beach. Our Biking: SLO Wineries Half Day bike tour is very close to Avila Beach and features several great wineries, but does have more hills than either the Paso Robles half day bike tour or the Avila Beach half day bike tour.

The Biking: Pacific Coast Highway Half Day tour is more focused on just the spectacular coast of SLO County compared to the Biking: Avila Beach Half Day tour, but it does have some cycling on narrow roads with little to no shoulder and varying traffic volumes.

We don't offer a regular full day version of the Avila See Canyon bike tour, but could explore putting something like this together as a custom bike tour.
