This the perfect place to spend an entire day! Take advantage of being on the beach and split your day between rides and play time in the sand.

Around 30 miles from San Jose. The traffic can be heavy during the weekend afternoons. Check google maps and starting before 1 PM and Starting the return drive after 7.30 PM will help to skip the peak traffic.
