The Monterey Peninsula is a Great Place to Bike!


The team at the Hofsas House invites you to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride.

Here are some of the Hofsas House teams favorite bike rides.

•   Try the Monterey Bay Coastal Bike Path that goes from Pacific Grove all the way north to... Castroville, some 29 miles long. See the seals and sea otters by Fisherman's Wharf or stop for a bite to eat on the Commercial Wharf at The Sand Bar Grill.

•   One of General Manager Carrie Thies' favorite bike routes is about five miles that goes from the Hofsas House, down to Scenic Avenue going south along the Carmel Bay and to the Carmel River. Stop by the Carmel Mission for a bit of history and go along Rio Road and cross Highway 1 and have lunch at Rio Grill . The grilled artichoke is the best!

•   For serious bikers, Ford Ord Public Lands have both mountain bike trails and paved-road cycling. Try the suggested 8 mile route to get acquainted with the area.

Ask the Hofsas House Concierge about renting bikes in the area. We can have bikes delivered to the Hotel for a day rental or we can arrange to have you pick them up in Monterey near the Coastal Bike Path for a half a day rental.

The Hybrid with 21 gears for $9 per hour/$27  -  4 hours/$36  -  8 hours
