Hi, We will be driving through from Pismo Beach and wanted to hire bikes to cycle this trail. Can you tell me where is best, closest to the trail and is there parking beside it? thanks.

They suggested to park at their own "Bob Jones Biking Trail" parking lot. Picture:

It is on Ontario Road, parallel to the US-101 freeway. Pretty easy to find.

It looks like there is an electric bike rental at Avila Beach:

http://www.pedegoelectricbikes.com/dealers/avila-beach/

If you rent things from them, you can start the Bob Jones Trail from that end. Or else it would need to be from San Luis Obispo, which adds a few miles up north.

If you end up not renting bikes it's really easy just to walk the trail. It's relatively flat and it doesn't take too long to get to Avila. There's a nice cafe, Woodstone Marketplace, along the trail if you get hungry.

Just don't leave anything visible in your vehicle. Cars have been broken into parked near the Ontario Street entrance.

Thank you so much for all the info. Think I will hire bikes & leave car parked at bike shop.
