Description: If you are in Monterey and want to have some fun while you explore the landscape rent a bike at Adventures By The Sea. They have three seater and six seater bikes so your whole family can join in the fun together! There are 5 locations in Monterey so no matter where you are by the ocean you are close by. The bikes are all new looking and in very good condition. Cannery Row has a wonderful bike path right above it's main street which goes along the Row, by the ocean, and on over to Lover's Point. There is so much to see along your journey. The crashing waves makes for a beautiful backdrop. You can see the beached harbor seals sunning themselves, they have their own sectioned off fenced area right after you pass the Aquarium. Each bike comes with a lock convenient for parking near Cannery Row and walking to food or shops. Along the bike path there are corridors and paths which you can easily walk through to get to the main street. It's especially enjoyable when it's sunny out, there are so many places to stop for a panoramic photo and enjoy the beautiful backdrop. Biking over to Lover's Point doesn't take long and you can park the bike and walk down to the beach or take a walk on the very scenic route off of Lover's Point. Biking is a really fun way to see what Monterey has to offer and get some exercise in at the same time.

 

Highlights: On a sunny day there is  nothing better than riding on a bicycle with room enough for your whole family right along the beach. The crashing waves and scenic route are so enjoyable, you and your family will be laughing and taking pictures all the way!

 

Tips: Feed the meter for a couple of hours or find a parking lot, so you can really take advantage of your ride. Our meter only had an hour and that was just not enough time for our bike ride, there was so much more we could have  done on it- and we still ended up with a parking ticket!
