If you live close enough, throw the bikes in the car, otherwise you can rent them at Lover's Point in Pacific Grove or Cannery Row. There is a bike/recreation trail that goes for miles along the Monterey coast.
For a quick trip, here is the best section: Del Monte Beach (approximately the intersection of Camino Aguajito and Del Monte Ave) to Asilomar Beach. It is about 6 miles (10 km for you metric types!!) long, or 12 miles roundtrip and fairly flat. It is right along the ocean, goes by Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, Lovers Point... I live here and it never gets old..

There are 2 shops that rent various type of bikes, including the 4-person surreys.
Use a search engine to find "Adventures by the Sea"; I'll put the other website below.
