Coronado’s Star Park

UNDER Coronado Bridge?

We Do Ride UNDER the Coronado Bridge! YES! The Coronado Bridge was completed in 1969. The bridge is over 2 miles long, and curves at an angle of eighty degrees towards San Diego which allows US Naval and other large ships to pass underneath. Architect Robert Mosher modeled it after Spanish Mission Churches, which are an important aspect of regional history and architecture. This is just one of the many beautiful spots we ride on our Coronado Bike Tour...


Is It Snow or Sand?

Ice Skating at the Hotel del Coronado starts today, November 17th! Many of our Coronado Bike Tour riders do this after our ride. Many of our Coronado Bike Tour riders do this after our ride. I always bring at least one friend and make them take off their skates and then run barefoot in the ocean. Sooooo FUN...


Will it Make it?

The bridge's curve allows for lower gradients while still meeting the Navy’s requirements because the bridge can be safely crossed by motorists while also allowing Navy vessels to pass under the bridge. A rider on our Coronado Bike Tour took this picture last week. Did it make it?...


Haunted Hotel del Coronado?

Kate Morgan made plans for Thanksgiving weekend in 1892 to be with her married "boyfriend" at the Hotel Del. On the train there they got in a big fight. They got off the train mad at each other. She checked in to the Hotel Del by herself, walking the beach, hoping he would return. He never did. She was found dead with a shot to the head. Who shot her has always been debated. Some say it was self-inflicted, some say otherwise. Many say that room, # 3327 is truly haunted. I personally don't believe in ghosts BUT I wouldn't stay there...
