When you decided to visit Los Angeles, probably one of the first things that you thought about doing here was checking out the beaches. You absolutely should – they’re a must do! But how are you going to do it? You could spend hours wandering around on your own, probably missing some of the best spots. Or you could let us do the work by joining our Santa Monica/Venice Bicycle Ride, letting you relax and take in the incredible views as you enjoy the quintessential L.A. pastime, cycling down the beach on a Beach Cruiser.
We’ll have your bicycles ready when you arrive for the tour, then we’ll head down to the beach. The tour passes by famous Santa Monica Pier, before heading south towards Venice. We briefly stop on Venice Boardwalk, at Muscle Beach, and then continue past Venice Beach Pier to the beautiful canals. There’s a stop on hip Abbot Kinney Boulevard for juice or coffee (depends how healthy you want it to be!), before we head north up Main St, with its great collection of independent shops, cafes and bars, pausing to take in Santa Monica City Hall and the lovely Tongva Park. Your Santa Monica/Venice Bicycle Ride then ends back in the heart of Santa Monica – the perfect place to get lunch or head into downtown Los Angeles for our Historic Core tour.
Our tours can sell out. If you cannot make a booking email us at [email protected], telling us when you want to do the tour and how many guests are in your party, and if we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.
