This really gave us a great feel for the Californian Coast line and we loved how it went from the Harbour all the way passed the beach, onwards towards the more residential area of Santa Barbara. A very flat, peacefiul and beautiful ride.

Nice paved path along waterfront. We rented bikes. Most of it was flat and paved. We really enjoyed Santa Barbara from this view. People are very courteous. Definitely recommend either bike or walking.
