The City of Santa Monica was ranked the No. 7 most bikable City in the US by People for Bikes. At just 8 square miles and plenty of public bike racks, you can explore all of Santa Monica on just two wheels. One of the most popular routes is to rent a bike at the Pier and follow the Marvin Braude Bike Trail to Venice Beach to see Muscle Beach, Venice Skate Park, and visit the many shops along the Venice Boardwalk. The trail to the Venice Fishing Pier is about 3.5 miles, so you can bike there and back in about an hour, although you should stop to see some sights along the way.
