Bike Riding at Sea Ranch
Bike riding is one of summertime’s best activities in Sea Ranch. While everyone in the valley is scorching in triple digit heat, you leisurely peddle along the meadows and tree lined trails greeting deer and wild turkeys along the way. For that reason, there’s no better way to celebrate summer than by bike riding in Sea Ranch.
But what will you do if you can’t bring your own bikes with you to Abalone Bay?
No Worries – Sea Ranch Rentals Has You Covered

Further, as an Abalone Bay guest you can now rent bikes through A Specialized Expedition from June 1 thru October 31 AND through the Thanksgiving holiday (adult bikes only) by calling 707-785-2366. Their rate is $40 a day for a 24 hour period. Hourly rates are not available.
Remember, Sea Ranch Bikes’ “fleet” of bikes isn’t huge, so reserve yours as soon as you can. They deliver and pick up directly to Abalone Bay!
Not only does Specialized Expedition Bikes offer the ultimate in cruising comfort, with Specialized’s Ground Control geometry for an easy, upright body position, it also offers a smooth ride thanks to the cushy suspension fork. Furthermore, its a lightweight aluminum frame, 7-speed Shimano shifter and a comfy spring-mounted seat makes each ride a dream. Each bike comes with a helmet and a cable lock. Handlebar-mounted baskets are available.
Indeed, with your Expedition Bike in hand, your helmet on your head you will be set to for bike riding in Sea Ranch’s beautiful, and famous stretch of coastline.
Bike Riding in Sea Ranch with a Dose of History
We especially recommend you explore Sea Ranch history by bike. The Sea Ranch Association marked 25 historical sites with information posts. With a QR (quick read) Code app on your smartphone makes reading about Sea Ranch’s history particularly easy (download from iTunes). Simply check each post’s QR code marker for even more detailed background on the site.
The Sea Ranch roads are uniformly smooth and wide, with well-signed connecting paths that, naturally, lets you bike for miles without leaving the serenity and safety of the Ranch. Occasionally, though, you may encounter a bit congestion such as few smiling trekkers, a family of deer grazing along the roadside, or a covey of quail scurrying across the intersection as the flock of wild turkeys call to you wish you a grand holiday!
Bike Riding Rules in Sea Ranch
Sea Ranch Bicycle Rentals do have a few caveats for bike riding in Sea Ranch:
- Riding on the ocean bluff trail or on any trail leading to the ocean bluff causes erosion. Ride only on designated trails showing a bike icon.
- Sea Ranch Rental Bicycles are not allowed on Highway One.
WE had a wonderful trip to Sea Ranch that was enhanced by renting bikes. Riding in Sea Ranch is a great way to get around, see the beauty of the area and exercise
