“The best way to enjoy the beach is on a bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Visiting friends in Santa Monica, we rode bikes on the beach path from the Will Rogers State Park to Venice Beach, ending near the Pier. What a great morning! People, dolphins, dogs, birds, games, every Southern California cliché on parade. Whiffs of weed in Venice, otherwise all good salt air. Just a caveat for parents.

“Gotta do it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Just a fun way to explore the beach and see the people - all sorts of people! We rented a tandem at the Bike Center nearby, not on the path.

“Fun Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

A great way to see some interesting people and get a little exercise! Rent a bike and take this bike path through Venice Beach and up towards Malibu. Stop for a corn dog along the way or you can always watch the street performers!

“They certainly cater for cyclists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We rode from Hermosa Beach to Santa Monica and back and were very impressed at the fantastic facilities for both cyclists and pedestrians. This was a really enjoyable, easy ride which gave us great views of the coastline and surrounding areas.

“Is it a bike path or running?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I gave it average- because I am a runner. I think I was not supposed to be on it. But I couldn't find the running path- or rather it kind of stopped north of the pier. I was afraid I was going to get yelled at by a biker. But I didn't. I had tried to research it and running paths- couldn't really find any info.
