Get your gear
Whether you need to rent a bike for the day or want to get your own equipment tuned up, Conejo has you covered. Serious Cycling is a local favorite where you can buy or rent bike gear, including road bike rentals. JRA Bikes & Brews is another great place for rentals – and they’ll set you up with your morning coffee, too.
Want to amp up the fun during National Bike Month? Try renting an electric bike from Pedego 101 – which is the go-to place for easy-to-use, electric bikes that are sure to delight (and will save your legs a bit of effort).
Map your ride
Conejo is home to both picturesque mountain bike trails and scenic road bike trails, depending on which type of cycling you’re more comfortable with. Check out both options to see what appeals most to you. Either way, you’ll find a great itinerary with Conejo’s well-planned trails.
You may also want to consider trails that take you through one of Conejo Valley’s most remarkable local treasures. The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area is an expansive national park located right in the Conejo Valley. With a variety of wildlife, sweeping mountain views on one side and breathtaking views of the California coast on the other, the 500-plus miles of trails running through the Santa Monica Mountains are unforgettable. Within the park, you’ll also want to explore Paramount Ranch – an iconic, old Western ranch where many movies and TV shows have been filmed.
When you explore the area by bike, you see a side of the Conejo Valley that many people never get to experience – and you won’t want to miss it.
Re-fuel & Unwind
We’re guessing you’ll be more than ready to grab some good eats and an ice-cold beer or a glass of wine at the end of your biking extravaganza. Fortunately, there are plenty of food and drink spots throughout Conejo that you can access by bike.
The rustic, historic and charming tasting room of Cornell Winery will leave wine lovers mesmerized and appreciative of the local wine culture. If craft brews are more your beat, try Ladyface Alehouse & Brasserie, a European-style brewpub with a delicious seasonal food menu and a list of beers all hand-crafted on site.
