One of the best ways to get around and to get to know Carmel is bike riding around the area. Instead of driving the 17-mile drive, we decided to bike! We went up along the coast from Carmel to Carmel River Beach to Pebble Beach and almost made it to Spanish Bay, but called it a day after we had been biking for several hours. It was a gorgeous day and we even saw a glimpse of a college golf tournament while lunching at the Pebble Beach Lodge (amazing food and views). All in all, it was the perfect day.
