Biking Trails in Contra Costa

Featured Author: Contra Costa Living Blog Team

Biking is a great way to enjoy nature while exercising. Fortunately, the Contra Costa area is full of beautiful bike trails that are great for people of all different skill levels.

Bring your bike to Angel Island, or rent one there to enjoy a scenic ride. The trail is an easy five-mile route that is mostly paved on Perimeter Road. The route takes you past old military buildings, and a beautiful, fragrant eucalyptus forest. The best viewpoints are on the southern end of the island, where you are able to see both the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge. Bring your lunch and spend the day cruising around the island and enjoying the many beaches.

For those who love biking and wine, embark on a two-wheel wine tour. You can ride for just an hour, or plan a whole day of biking and wine tasting. Tours start at Napa Valley Bike Tours, where you can get route advice and rent a bike.
