I think it's called the Marvin Braude Memorial Trail, I've seen his name posted along it in the past. Great bike ride most right next to the ocean. Best of the beach cities. Bike rentals in SaMo, Venice, and elsewhere along the trail. Best in...More

Rent a beach bike for $18 for full day and travel through Venice area back streets, Marina del Rey and beyond, and of course just the classic beach section. Bring lots of water (fill up on ice at your hotel) and apply lots of sunscreen.

If I were leisurely riding a tricycle for sightseeing, this would have been a 5-star rating. It is a very busy, crowded path. But since I was riding to get to a destination, and hoping for some exercise, it rates much lower. That is NOT...More

The bike ride is wonderful as a family event, then you can stop to have lunch on the way. This was a great day for us.

Loved the long strip for biking! Relaxing and a full view of different art selling by merchants! Renting of bikes is all over so no worries for finding One. A place to visit anytime!

If you are energetic and want to catch the true local flavor, this ride is for you. The landscape changes as you ride from one beach town to another with lots of places to stop along the way. It's best to do this early in...More

We always rent a bike(s) and bike down to Venice beach and back. The people watching is amazing and there are a few good ice cream shops. Muscle beach is a sight to see.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

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!

Why not use a Segway. I saw all sorts enjoying the Strand. Another option for you may be an electric bike. Safe and easy to use going the distance. Have fun!
