We've ridden this BIKE path many times and almost everytime, someone has stepped out in front of me and I've gone down. I'm too old to fall.

Loved this bike path. Part of our fav thing to do during our trip to Santa Monica. Rode from Samar Monica to Venice beach and back. The path is easy to use and everyone seems to respect the designated bike path areas. A ‘must do’...More

...but a lovely place to ride a bike during off hours — you can ride all the way to Manhattan beach along the lovely coast, stop to eat, and ride home— a great way to spend the day!

I have lived in SoCal for a long time, and have to say nothing can beat biking at the beach!! You get to see a lot along the strand.

This is an excellent bike path. Beautiful scenery, pavement in generally good condition, and if you ride the full length it passes through some of the best places in SoCal. The afternoon winds can be an issue if you're headed north in the afternoon, so...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a

thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

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!
