    You can rent bikes at B&L bikes in the sports arena area san diego. Here's a weblink:

    If you want to do longer rides look on MTB Bill's website and do the rides in East County like Cuyamaca Grand Loop, Tour de Noble, Noble Canyon. Plenty of good stuff out that way, but you will need a car as it is all about a 40 minute drive from the city.

    From the city on public transportation you can take the Trolley (Green Line) to the end of the line at Santee Town Center. From there you can easily access Sycamore Canyon using the Mast Road entrance as explained on MTB Bill's website (short ride on the road to the Mast/Medina trailhead and Santee lakes area) or you could ride to Mission Trails Regional Park. You can look at the central area and east county maps here http://www.sdcommute.com/Services/RegionalMaps.aspx

    good luck.

    you can ride Florida canyon (Balboa Park practically downtown) and there are some other scattered trails that we can link to... If you are staying d-town I'll give you a tour of the rides we can do without having to drive anywhere...

    Also there are several other trail systems (Penasquitos canyon, Rose and San Clemente Canyons, etc) in town that don't require going out too far...

    Hi all,

    There are a news about New Shop, Promotion, Bike Event or other about BIKE WORLD in San Diego o near the city..

    Last question. Last year i went in US and I visited more Nationa Parks but not Joshua Tree. It's a beautiful park? There are a trail for a bike or trecking?

    thanks
