What can beat riding along the beach on a sunny day?

The path is a nice smooth & wide concrete thoroughfare which rests at the high end of the beach and seashore all along the beach cities. We watched bikers, skaters, walkers, hikers, runners, joggers & moms w strollers, all somehow sharing the same real estate. Fun to use & fun to watch the mixed menagerie. Thanks Councilman Marvin Braude! ...

Rode the bike trail between Dockweiler beach and the Redondo Pier. Beautiful pathway (with the exception of riding past the power stations). This section of the path is much less crowded with pedestrians then the section in Santa Monica and Venice Beach. Nice too that you don't have to navigate through any vehicular traffic as you do on the section... More

Great way to see all of the beach towns on this path. Venice Beach is the busiest part of the path so you need to be careful of lots of walkers on the path.

You can basically ride from Torrance, to Malibu. 22 miles with one hill. Best prt is you are right on the beach for 97% of the ride. Bike, blade, skateboard, walk, run..plenty of options. Most parts are not that crowded. Plus great for people watching!

This bike trail runs from Torrance Beach on the southern end up past Manhattan Beach, Venice Beach and Santa Monica Beach on the north end, all the way to Will Rogers State Beach. I really liked this trail because it is easy for anyone who is reasonably fit, and because it is for biking NOT hiking. The closer that you... More

This is a wonderful 22.5 mile bike path from Torrance Beach in the south to Will Rodgers Beach in the north. With the exception of going around the Redondo Beach Pier / King Harbor area and Marina Del Rey where you will have to ride on a marked separate bike lane on the road it is a two way paved... More

My husband's parents lived in MDR and we keep bikes in their garage for use when we visit. Today we rode 20 miles on the Braude Bike Path from the Marina up past Will Rogers State Park and back. It's always better to ride early in the morning or weekdays before the ambling tourists and other pedestrians appear. There are... More

A ride on the Marvin Braude Coastal Bike Trail will give you a unique, relaxing and VERY L.A. experience. The ride takes you through Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey, past the Ballona Wetlands, under planes taking off at LAX and into the trendy cities of the South Bay. The trail is mostly along the beach, with only two short... More

I have been biking and roller skating on this trail my entire life. I absolutely love it! It's long, but so amazing. I usually start in Torrance and ride to Manhattan beach and back. But on Labor day I did the entire trail. The beaches up past Manhattan Beach are so peaceful and quiet with perfect white sand and dolphins... More

Beautiful ride by the ocean from Santa Monica to Torrance Beach. 22 miles mostly directly alongside the ocean. Plenty of cafes along the way. Best done in winter during the week when it is reasonably quiet; otherwise it can get very crowded.
