Marvin Braude Bike Trail
This beloved 22-mile bicycle path traces nearly the entire extent of L.A.’s westward-facing coastline. The path starts at Will Rogers State Beach, passes droolworthy real estate in Santa Monica, Venice and Manhattan Beach and winds its way all the way down to Torrance County Beach—you probably know its South Bay expanse better as “the Strand.”
Though you’ll have to share parts of the path with pedestrians, the large majority is bikes only. Just a heads up that after you pass Venice, the paved path curves into Washington Boulevard to navigate around Marina del Rey; the rest of the route takes you back on the beach all the way down to the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
