Rides range from 10 to 30 miles depending on you. The terrain can be tailored so it is flat and on bicycle paths or we can add in some rolling hills. We can cover the surf spots, harbors, beaches, local museums, the boardwalk, state parks and the marine lab, among others. No matter what route we choose, we stop for photos, local history and local tips. Each ride will last approximately 3 hours with a stop for drinks and snacks.

Afterwards, if you want, we can eat at the best local restaurants in Santa Cruz. Food and Bikes not included, but I can recommend a bike rental place and great places to eat.

What an amazing day my husband and I had with Susan - Owner of Rose Pedal Bike Tours of Santa Cruz - on Saturday 1/30/2016. We met at 10:00 AM and rode 18 miles which was perfectly planed. Not too hard and not too easy. The temp was a little cool to start but the sun came out for a spectacular crisp day. Perfect for cycling. A long the way we stopped at the Midtown Cafe for coffee. Then we headed to the mystery spot, and then on to the west side on a bike path, stopped at the famous surfing spot and visited the Santa Cruz Surfing museum which had a very interest exhibit on shark attacks. We saw many historical homes and the Fair Avenue temple - kinda quirky structure/temple from the 1950’s. This was a really great way to see Santa Cruz and get some exercise. Susan then recommend some great restaurants and bars for my husband I to visit later that evening. We will definitely book another tour with Susan the next time we are in town. She is well organized and very knowledgable about cycling, Santa Cruz and where to have fun.
