The fabulous Recreation Trail that follows the shoreline above Cannery Row and around the marina.  The Recreation Trail winds along the coast from the Aquarium to Lover’s Point and then a bike lane picks up along the rocky shores area of Pacific Grove’s coastline. This bike lane leads you along the shore to the entrance to 17-Mile Drive, and upon entering Del Monte Forest, you can pedal in the bike lane along 17-Mile Drive to The Lodge at Pebble Beach or Bird and Seal Rock.  There are many awesome spots for a picnic lunch or simply a photo opportunity.  You’ll ride out with the ocean on one side and then return with the ocean on your other side.  It’s breathtaking and beautiful!

Also, a popular National Prestige Classic bicycle race of the 1970's, the Butterfly Criterium made its return to the picturesque town of Pacific Grove, California. The event was a success for the Central and Northern California cycling community and the town of Pacific Grove. The race provides a great weekend of racing and relaxation on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula.
