26-Mile Bike Path, Santa Monica

4.8
#2 of 13 in Outdoors in Santa Monica
A trail that follows the curve of Santa Monica Bay's shore, 26-Mile Bike Path surges with cyclists and rollerbladers throughout the year. The trail runs from Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach, with bike and rollerblade rentals on either end. You'll share the road with motorists on portions of the path, so ride or skate carefully, and wear a helmet. Consider bringing a bottle of water, sunscreen, and a hat. You can stop to refuel at your choice of restaurants before heading back. 26-Mile Bike Path is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Santa Monica Edition.
