  • Santa Monica all the way thru Huntington, Manhattan to Palos Verdes. A great ride with many places to stop and watch the people go by  more »
  • It was really fun to ride bikes down the beach boardwalk to Venice and find out way to the beautiful homes along the Venice canal.  more »
  • Hire yourself a bike and get out along the path. Early mornings are best before it all gets too busy. Best way to see the very different beaches.  more »
