I am staying at a hotel near the beach in Santa Monica in June and am bringing my bike. If I get on the bike path at the beach in Santa Monica, how far south does it go? I was in Long Beach a couple years ago and noticed a bike path going by along the ocean. Does this bike path connect with the one in Santa Monica? Does all of S. Cal have connecting bike paths along the beach? I am just trying to estimate how far I can go and back in a day. Thanks.
