    Rental bike and area to ride near San Diego

    Hi all,

    my name is Tommaso and I live in Germany/Italy. I am a passionate mountainbiker around the Alps here in Europe. For the next 2 weekends I will be onsite in San Diego and wanted to check out some nice trails around that area. As I am not planning to take my bike with me I wanted to ask if someone knows where it would be possible to rent a bike.
    If I can organize a bike (preffered a Full Suspension but a HT would do it as well) can someone advise some nice trails or a group to ride with.
    I normally drive All Mountain/Enduro style here in Europe.

    I would really much appreciate your help as I would love to ride once in California.

    Thanks and cheers
    Tommaso

    Hi Tommaso,

    For group rides check out Meetup.com - The San Diego Mountain/Trail & Road Biking Meetup. Don't let the name scare you - there are almost never any road rides posted!

    As for rentals, Cal Coast bikes on Adams Avenue rents some pretty sweet rides.

    Good luck and enjoy SD!

    Hi guys,

    thanks a lot for you valubale feedback. I am checking out now the rental locations, they are all looking fine.
    Also I have checked meetup.com and found that ride for Sunday teh 25th
    Penasquitos Beginner Group Ride (13 miles) - The San Diego Mountain/Trail & Road Biking Meetup (San Diego, CA) - Meetup

    Do yo think it is kind of fun for All Mountain/Enduro Tour or can you recommand may be something else what needs to be done if I can have only one day of the weekend to explore nice trails?

    Thanks again for your help
    Tommaso

    look for a Noble canyon group ride which are posted at dirttreaders.com and meetup. That ride might be more of what you're looking for

    Thanks for that information Dirtrider. Yes the Noble group looks more that kind of ride I am interessted on. As I see you ride almost each Saturday. Unfortunatly I only arrive this Saturday after lunch to SD and I see in teh dirttreaders forum already some riding threat. But next Saturday the 31st August I hopefully can make while getting a bike, that would be great.

    Thx
