Rode our bikes from Marina to Lovers Point in Pacific Grove. It was a few ups and downs but doable. We went during the week and wasn't crowded. Beautiful views along the way. Plenty of places to stop, picnic or just watch the waves.

We rented bikes for a half-day ride along the trail. Lots of great stops, at Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, Lovers Point, etc. Easy to navigate the trail and street crossings were easy.
