Quite broad bikeway with 2 lanes, one for each directions, so this makes this bikeway quite comfortable. It goes parallelly to the walkway most of the time.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a

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
