San Diego is a great place for bicycling. While its geography can seem somewhat limiting with the steep hills, valleys, canyons, and freeways, there are many other ways around. These pages cover those alternate routes, as well as some of the major routes, throughout the City of San Diego.
Many of the canyons in the central area of San Diego have trails through them. Not all of these trails are easily traversable by bicycle. The trails that are will be covered in these pages. Additionally, routes that I have found to be good ways around Mission Valley, Downtown, and Balboa Park will be covered as well.

San Diego Bike Share:
There are four different companies that provide a bike share program in San Diego. One is “docked”, meaning the bicycles have to be returned to a station. The other three are “dockless”, meaning they can be left where within the service area without being at a specific location. Each have their advantages and weaknesses. Only time will tell who will win out. Alll of these are external links.
