This section of the bike trail is a lot quieter with less bike traffic than closer to Venice Beach. It was peaceful and scenic. Easy, flat and wide paved bike trail. Enjoyed it a lot!

To see the beaches from Venice to Malibu hiring bikes is a must. The tracks are wide and well organised and the bikes will cost about $20 per day. well worth it.

Very clean cycle paths and walk ways. Cycled from Marina Del Ray to Santa Monica. Then went into Santa Monica to do some shopping. Lots of places to lock your bike. Can be busy in parts when paths cross over. Not just bikes use the Trail, roller blades, and skateboards too. Great Fun and beautiful views.

The provided picture shows separate, contiguous running and bicycle paths, scrupulously maintained. People obey the rules, too, so you can ambulate or ride in complete safety. There are many places nearby where you can rent a bike cheaply. Given the near perfect weather most everyday, I managed to get in a 4-6 mile walk/run each day we were there. And,... More

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.
