The In & Around Avalon Tour is a road ride that is essentially a grand tour of Avalon and its immediate environs. Although 88% of Santa Catalina Island is owned by the Santa Catalina Island Conservancy—and to see it, one must purchase a membership—it is possible to get in a decent road ride in “non- protected” Avalon on its public roads. This ride, therefore, is a less costly, more leisurely option for those not up to attacking Catalina’s rugged interior. From the intersection of Crescent and Clarissa Avenues in central Avalon, head east along the shoreline on Pebbly Beach Road. After the sharp turn adjacent to the power generating station, climb Wrigley Road to its crest (411 feet). Enjoy the view of the city and the ocean from up here. Wrigley then descends, passing the Inn on Mount Ada (hugely popular tourist stop, as well as a bed-and-breakfast).
