Mountain Biking and Cycling in San Luis Obispo County

SLO CAL is a dream for cyclists, mountain bikers and recreational riders. Urban bike trails, picturesque mountain bike trails through the foothills and the iconic, coastal Highway 1 combine to make SLO CAL the perfect destination for bike lovers of all experience levels.
The rolling foothills throughout SLO CAL are greatly favored among mountain bikers. Its challenging terrain contains steep climbs, long, flat stretches, magnificent vistas and abundant wildlife. Trails range in both difficulty and length.
Road cyclists will find endless coastal landscapes on popular routes that take them along Highway 1 and through quaint coastal towns like Cambria and Cayucos. For a different, but just as enchanting, view, consider a ride through the SLO CAL’s wine countries. Both Edna Valley and the Paso Robles area boast breathtaking views of bucolic vine-covered hills and wine country beauty.
If it’s a more leisurely ride you’re after, SLO CAL has options for you as well. Several paved bike trails throughout the county cater to more recreational riders. A favorite among locals is the Bob Jones City to Sea Trail, a flat trail that follows the San Luis Obispo Creek and rewards bikers with an incredible delight at the end—the trail finishes right at Avila Beach.
