Oceanside by Bike

Oceanside is the perfect destination to bring your bike.

Enjoy an easy beach cruise, explore the historic pier area, or use it as a launching point for an extended ride to explore sights such as Mission San Luis Rey. We have several suggestions for a day of fun on two wheels.

Cruising around town

Oceanside's picturesque location is reason enough to throw your beach cruiser on board and go exploring. If you just want to enjoy a casual ride along the strand, you can rent a Surry from Wheel Fun Rentals or fat tire scooter from Ride Oside!
