You must try the cycle trails. They are great for kids and traffic free. Lots of places to stop and have food.

We loved this beach bike trail and how it just winds through Santa Monica, Venice Beach and Marina Del Ray. We drove for about 5 miles down and 5 miles back were easy to do. Lots of good sites to see people, places and things.

Having the Bike path right at the door step to our Hotel was a absolute blessing. Not only was it great to bike up to and beyond Venice Beach it was a great place to people watch. SoCal has such a diversely interesting population that you get a chance to meet some of the most colourful people on the planet,... More

There is nothing like riding your bike from Roy Rogers to Manhattan Beach. So many it resting things a s people to see. There is beach, good, water and lots of stores to entertain. The salty air will keep you takin deep breathes to remember your time here.

Great opportunity for some exercise and people watching- locals and tourists. Lots of people hiring bikes but we choose to walk. A few coffee shops conveniently located along the walk.

The So Bay bike is so much fun. It's crowded on weekends. Watch out for walkers who appear out of nowhere.

If you are looking for a great place for a bike ride, you could not find a better one than the Santa Monica one. The path is flat, smooth and lined with beach and palm trees. It is well used as it is very popular with locals. For non locals there are many places to rent bicycles along the trail.
