The view of Ledbetter beach, the ocean, the islands, Shoreline park and the unique homes along this iconic bike path is without peer. It's a pretty long hill heading up towards the Mesa but a great and popular workout.

When we are in the area, we get up early every morning and run/walk along the bike path. It is a wonderful way to begin our daily adventures.

This is a wonderful experience to enjoy with children of all ages. Rent a "group" type family bike and take grandparents along. Not for city streets, but this bike path is safe and fun.

Hop on a bike and enjoy the view of the beach, ocean and sailboats. Make sure you stop at the Shoreline Cafe for drinks at the end of the day.

A great way to see the beach in Santa Barbara. It starts at the bird sanctuary & goes to Shoreline park. Great on Sunday to see the art displays.
