Heading to the San Diego County area soon? If so, stay in the town of Oceanside for some great biking riding. The obvious ride is along the Coast Highway from Oceanside to La Jolla and back. But a hidden jewel is the new "San Luis Valley Bike Trail." This route also begins in Oceanside but heads away from the coastline up the San Luis River eastward for over 10 miles one way. stop signs or traffics lights to deal with along this very friendly and safe route. Large expansive views of the hills and river areas greet you to a wonderfully fun and flat ride with ocean breezes on your return route. Try it next time you head south to San Diego.
