Started in Santa Monica early in the morning and rode all the way to the end, and back. It's a great way to see different areas along the coast and an easy flat ride with plenty of restrooms and stops along the path.

We didn't know about this until we visited. The pathway is clean and tidy and well maintained. The path is used by pedestrians, bikers, skate boarders and others. It's a great way to walk at the side and see most of the beach and surrounding...More

A long lovely path that runs to Playa del Rey is ruined by the homeless and crowds in Venice and Ocean Park who wander on to the path, not to mention speeding bike riders. You take your life in your hands on the weekends especially....More

I have ridden down the 26 mile path many many times. It's just quite fabulous to ride along by the beach and ocean, whether you ride all the way or just a few miles and turn around. You can equally walk, skate etc the route.

Love the bike path here it's great for casual cycling, good if it's quiet for getting about. There are one or two people walking on it at times but that's not really an issue

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!
I am debating whether to rent bikes to ride along Santa Monica or go on a Segway tour. Is the Segway tour way more worthwhile ? I have gone biking there before and enjoy it but can't bike more Than. an hour max Any input on the Segway option?

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!
