There are so many places you can hire a bike (or blades, or scooter) to ride along this stretch of coastline, and plenty to see along the way. Most people respect the 'rules of the road' and stick to the correct side of the path,...More

Super fun but you should rent a bike or motorized scooter! A great adventure as a couple or with family. Lots to see, so many places to stop and eat/drink. We rode from Santa Monica Pier and past Venice Beach!

Not many places I guess, where one can ride a two-wheeler on the beach. Perfectly wide bike-path, sometimes shared with foot traffic. Great for exploring the beach area. At first rented a bicycle for an hour, which is a better workout, but I also wanted...More

This is a scenic and busy, at times, ride. Keep your head up and and be aware but enjoy the scenery.

So much so that you hurt your neck! Seriously though this place is amazing. By the way you could go 52 miles on the bike without leaving the path

Can’t recommend this enough! great way to see the sights along the beach - easy wide bike only some shared with walkers & skaters paths. 1/2 day is probably enough - you can go malibu to way past venice beach if you wish. Note nothing...More

There’s no great advantage to be gained by riding the bike path from beginning to end. If you want to log in 26 miles, go 13 and then come back. I find the southern end of the trail after Venice not very scenic. The trail... More

I believe so. But would recommend helmets even if being towed. Gets pretty crowded.

They charge by the hour and no deposit--I think they just keep a credit card on file. And yes, some have a small basket. It's totally cheap, easy, and hassle free!
