Start: Hop on to bike the coast
Pacific Grove’s rocky edge is made for cyclists. From Lovers Point, riding west threads you along a designated bike lane on the beach-side road for a nice, easy 4.7-mile ride. Stop often to watch foamy waves crashing over the rocks and sea otters at play. BYOB (bring your own bike) or rent one from Adventures by the Sea (from $7 per hour; 831/372-1807).
