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. Put26-Mile Bike Path into our Santa Monica trip tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

This is Santa Monica, baby! One of the favorite spots to people watch in the United States. Do not miss it.

Lovely and quiet beach. Gorgeous sunset and great location. Lots of parking. Love visiting here to enjoy the calm and peace, much better than Santa Monica.
Beach cruiser paradise! Rent or bring your own bike... it's a breeze riding from Temescal to the Marina. Enjoy some good eats, stop along the way to people watch on the Santa Monica Pier or go for a swing! If you're trying to escape the heat of the city/Valley, you can't go wrong riding along PCH. Always a fun time and no parking fees either! Bring your bike lock, sunscreen, bathing suit, beach towel and enjoy the ride! 🚴🏾
