What a great way to see Santa Monica and Venice. Very easy ride, except coming back up the incline from beach to street level. Very well designed and maintained. A must do.

Loved cycling on the cycle path. Disappears in Venice Beach so look on a google map if you want to cycle more than the 3miles from Santa Monica to Venice. Need to find the path which goes round marina del Ray

Quite broad bikeway with 2 lanes, one for each directions, so this makes this bikeway quite comfortable. It goes parallelly to the walkway most of the time.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

They charge by the hour and no deposit--I think they just keep a credit card on file. And yes, some have a small basket. It's totally cheap, easy, and hassle free!
