Borrowed bikes from our hotel and rode all the way to the Biltmore Four Seasons, it is beautiful and any easy ride.

What a great place to ride bikes. Bike paths are everywhere, the Cabrillo Bike path is great! Whether you are an avid biker or just want to rent one at a hotel or right on Cabrillo Ave and State Street, this really is a must do while visiting Santa Barbara.

The bike path was the highlight of our trip. The path is well maintained and you can see many of the hot spots along the way. Only down side is there a lot of homeless people as well

This lovely "path" is for everyone, whether you walk, run, bike, stroll... You have the best of visual worlds in this city- the gorgeous beach, shoreline and pier on one side and the charm of Santa Barbara and soaring mountains on the other. You can take as short or long a trip as you wish, it's all enjoyable. Sometimes there... More

The bicycle path follows the shore line for miles and you can enjoy a dedicated bicycle path with no traffic or other obstacles.

Took a bike from the hotel down the coast. Well-worth it without a doubt. Great scenic view of the coast and town while enjoying the sun. Definitely a highlight of our trip.

Fantastic bike path along the Pacific Ocean. You can go up into the mountains or stay along the beach

For novice bike riders like me this is the perfect place to get back on a bike. Our hotel gave us free beach cruisers to use during our stay. There are miles of bike paths to spend an entire day biking around. Bring some water and enjoy the outdoors!

Runs all the way from east beach to west beach right along the water. It has to be shared with walkers which I always thought was a pain when there is the widest sidewalk on the west coast just 20 yards away.
