What better way to get some exercise and fresh air than a long ride along our majestic coast line! You can take the bike path (Marvin Braude Bike Trail) all the way from Venice to Marina del Rey, Santa Monica, Playa del Rey, Pacific Palisades or Palos Verdes!
The bike path, runs along the sand in Venice is 22 miles long and extends from Palos Verdes through Pacific Palisades, with a brief in-land detour. Its smooth concrete surface is great for bicycles, roller skates and skateboards alike. However, pedestrians are not allowed, so, if you want to walk then you should do it on sand. There is no better way to take in the scenery of the area beaches than a casual ride up and down the coast. And the best part is that there are no cars, so, you can enjoy your ride without risk or exhaust fumes. Embraced by tourists and locals alike, the bike path is one of the treasures of Venice and is not to be missed.
TIPS: If you go north on the path you will head into Santa Monica and into Pacific Palisades. Go south, and you can ride all the way from Marina Del Rey to the Palos Verdes peninsula (Tip: Once in Marina Del Rey there is a slight inland detour.
