Some 3,500 bicyclists left Sunday morning on the annual ride across the Coronado Bay Bridge and around San Diego Bay.
In the 10th annual Bike the Bay event, the riders circumnavigate the bay on a course that takes them through Coronado, Imperial Beach, Chula Vista, National City and San Diego along the Bayshore Bikeway.
The 25-mile route begins and ends at Embarcadero Marina Park South along the downtown waterfront.
“We started Bike the Bay 10 years ago as a way to raise money for biking countywide while showcasing the character of our region and the abundant opportunity we have to become the most bike-friendly place in the country,” said Andy Hanshaw, executive director of the San Diego Bike Coalition. “Now this ride has become a San Diego staple — a summer tradition for families, tourists and locals who want a remarkable view of the place they call home.”
Live entertainment, food trucks and a beer garden will be available for the bicyclists when they finish.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit bike coalition programs.
