A Guide to Biking in Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara is the perfect city to explore by bicycle thanks to its extensive boardwalk, convenient bike lanes and accessible neighborhoods. Cruise past the wineries featured in the movie Sideways, challenge yourself on Gibraltar Road, or ride from tasting room to tasting room in the Funk Zone. Wheel Fun Rentals has all the cruiser bike rentals you need to explore everything Santa Barbara has to offer!
Tooling around Santa Barbara to take in the sites has never been easier thanks to an abundance of rental bikes available around town from the likes of Wheel Fun Rentals. In addition, bike-forward accommodation providers such as the very cool Wayfarer Inn have a fleet of sweet bikes available for guests at this hipster hostel meets stylish inn. For a smaller town, cycling infrastructure and lanes are plentiful. Highlights include a ride to the old and charming Mission Santa Barbara, a slow tour of the main shopping drag along Cabrillo Boulevard and an exploration of other happening neighbourhoods such as SoCo. Other points of interest within easy cycling range include the cute little Santa Barbara Zoo near the waterfront, the Museum of Natural History and the Ty Warner Sea Center. One could also make a day of hunting for the perfect taco, such as those offered by the local hotspot La Super- Rica Taqueria (622 N. Milpas St.). If burritos are more your thing, Mony’s Mexican (217 Anacapa St.) is your spot.
