Bike Riding In Santa Barbara
You’ll love bike riding in Santa Barbara. Our great year-round weather and beautiful California scenery lend themselves to some of the best biking in the U.S. In Santa Barbara bikes are almost as common as cars. Start your day on the flower-filled brick patio at our Santa Barbara bed & breakfast and enjoy samplings that might include fresh fruit, a traditional Continental breakfast, deep-dish French toast or an authentic Mexican frittata. Then head out to explore 78 miles of astonishing California coastline, mountains that rise up over 6800 feet, the Los Padres National Forest, or some of California’s finest wineries.

After an exhilarating day exploring the Santa Barbara bike paths together, come back to the best bed and breakfast in Santa Barbara for wine and hors d-oeuvres on our patio. Sample some of Santa Barbara’s best local wines and enjoy tasty hors d’oeuvres that will hit the spot. Regenerate yourself in our Santa Barbara hot tub or Santa Barbara Jacuzzi, and then choose from any of Santa Barbara’s nightlife activities, all within easy access from our romantic Victorian Inn. Evening chocolate chip cookies and brownies baked fresh daily will be available for your nibbling pleasure before bed, or our 24 hour refreshment center in the Eberle House is always open for tea, coffee, hot chocolate and ice.
