About the Area
Start your cycle adventure from the only beachfront hotel in Ventura. Located on the San Buenaventura Beach, Crowne Plaza is also just two blocks from Downtown Ventura. The beach boasts 2 miles of sandy beaches weaving among the sand dunes and the Ventura Pier.
If you are looking for an afternoon adventure you can cruise through the dunes on Buenaventura Beach’s labyrinth of bike paths or explore Ventura Pier - be sure to check out the snack bar, restaurant, and bait shop.
With so many sights to see, what better way to see it all than on a bike? If you have a free hour, come rent a bike and drink in the sights. More adventurous cyclists can board rental cycles for a half day or full day and explore the River Trail which winds its way all the way to Ojai. Bike helmets, maps, and bike locks are included, ensuring a safe and well prepared trip, so feel free to stop and snap pictures or have a picnic along the way!

Learn About This Tour
This self-guided bike tour starts at the back of the Crowne Plaza,
where paved sidewalks run up and down the coastline, and takes you inland
toward the city of Ojai via the Ventura River Trail and the Ojai Valley Trail
that connect to create a spectacular 17-mile urban bike ride. Once you’ve made
your way to the Ventura River Trail, you’ll be riding parallel to the Ventura
River all the way to Ojai.
On your way up to the Ventura River Trail,
you’ll ride by Surfers’ Point in Ventura, one of the most popular surf spots in
Southern California. After passing Mission San Buenaventura in downtown
Ventura, you’ll hit the Ventura River Trail before coming across Foster Park, which
offers an incredible view of the Ventura River. Once you make it up to Ojai, spend
some time riding around the city and checking out the recently restored Libbey
Park before heading back to Ventura.
