Don’t be lazy, just because it’s a little hot and humid this August. Get on your bike and ride! Newport Beach is a fun place to ride because there are so many places to explore. There is beautiful natural scenery in the back bay and also restaurants, festive atmosphere, and beach view cruises as well.

The cruise that everyone knows here in Newport Beach is the peninsula cruise, but what everyone doesn’t know is where to park. If you have your own bike, the best place to park is across from balboa island on Bayside Drive. For now, they still have open parking. You can bike over the bridge to get onto Balboa island and then take the ferry across to get to the peninsula. If you go this route, you need a couple dollars to get across the ferry, you can come back on PCH, but it’s a long tedious ride, and not that pretty, so I recommend bringing a couple of dollars to get back as well.

Newport Beach’s hidden gem is the Back Bay ride. You can park on Irvine Avenue, and University. Go either way and you are in for a surprise. Scenic estuary landscapes, exotic birds, and from some parts you can see all the way to the ocean. You can cruise the entire loop, there are bike trails that take you all the way across the right side of the loop. If you are in good shape, you can take Dover on the Irvine Blvd side, but it’s not as rewarding because you are riding along the street for at least half of your adventure. The terrain along back bay is a little more difficulty, if you have a single speed beach cruiser, you may have to push it up some of the hills.
Most people that live in Newport Beach need a break. Time to get a maid. Let’s face it, everyone needs a break from their daily routines. Tell me if this is you. You go to work, and you work until late, and then when you get home, it’s time to clean and tidy up the house. Now you can get your bike out, cruise the beach, and return to a clean and fresh smelling home. How relaxing! It’s like a vacation from house cleaning so you can “Hang Loose!”
