Rent a Vintage Bicycle! 

Mad Dogs & Englishmen

This town oozes charm and sophistication. Enjoy cycling along stunning Scenic Road which hugs the Carmel coastline, and is only a few blocks from our shop. Take in the beauty of turquoise blue waters and white powder sand beaches (the most beautiful beach in California is also dog-friendly). Marvel at the windswept Monterey Cypress Trees that line the roads. This area is super hilly, so our ebikes are an ideal way to get around.

We are also the closest bike shop to famed 17-Mile Drive in Pebble Beach. Cycle along this iconic bucket list roadway, stopping for a picnic lunch on one of many stunning beaches, or enjoy dining at one of the Pebble Beach Resorts iconic restaurants. The Bench overlooks the famous 18th hole, or cycle down to The Inn at Spanish Bay and enjoy their outdoor dining area overlooking the ocean while listening to Scottish Bagpipes. Enjoy the Lone Cypress Tree, The Ghost Trees and Fanshell Cove. Spot sea lions and otters in the water, and pass an abundance of local deer grazing along the courses, beach dunes and the protected Del Monte Forest. Whatever you choose to do, you are in for a magical experience that will be the highlight of your trip to the area.

Catch a Professional Soccer Game! 

Monterey Football Club, The Union…This is the story of the greatest union of land and sea. Two forces coming together to build a community; to build a club.

The Monterey region has been waiting for a club to call their own; a professional sports team at the highest levels built with the community and for the community. A club that represents both people and place and embodies all that is the wonder, beauty, magic and diversity of Monterey Bay. That time has come. That time is here.

Monterey Bay F.C. is committed to elevating the world’s game in a region that has long embraced soccer. Our matches on the campus of Cal State Monterey Bay will be a place to gather as a community, and our crest will be something that we will all want to wear over our hearts.

We are Monterey Bay F.C.
