This quiet ride on gentle rolling hills is perfect for the kids. There's a wide bike path and only a couple of quieter roads to cross.

Pleasant ride, with a little wildlife, and once when I was there, a spectacular sight of about twenty hang-gliders and parasails near the Point of the Mountain. There is at least one water fountain along the trail. One other thing: this map, as of July '09, is out of date. The trail appears to have been extended beyond 14600 South.
