Santa Monica and nearby Venice have plenty of places to rent bikes. Don't let the homeless worry you - it's still a good place to rent bikes and cruise along witnessing LA beach culture.

Thoroughly enjoyed our walk on the bike path and would highly recommend it to anyone else! Great way to work off all the American food we’ve been eating!

The bike path along the Santa Monica beach is excellent. Stretches from Santa Monica to Manhattan beach with amazing views of the ocean. You can rent bikes, roller blades and segways along the beach. Path is wide and is nicely marked for two way traffic....More

Riding the beachside bike path is wonderful and infuriating. You got pedestrians who walk 5-abreast, people who wobble frantically all over the place and think it's funny, families who put young children on bikes and think we can see them when they suddenly dart over...More

My two teen sons and I enjoyed renting bikes and riding along the path between Santa Monica and Venice. Rentals are $7 per hour. It was worth it!

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
