Over 40 miles of flat, wide beach makes for fantastic bike cruising in St Augustine.

Park at one of the many beach parking lots to the north of downtown St Augustine. A great place to start is the parking lot at the corner of 1st Lane and the A1A.

Head toward the edge of the water, where the beach is compact and flat. Especially when the tide is out, there is plenty of packed sand to bike over.

Most beaches allow for biking, but keep an eye out for a rare "No Biking" sign.

Amenities like food, toilets, and water can be accessed on or just off the beach.

For post-biking eats, check out Salt Water Cowboys. Dine on the deck for a chance to spot the feral, though friendly, cats and raccoons.
