The Legends Beach Bike Tour is led by a fabulous legends guide, you will see where surfing, skateboarding and beach volleyball were born. You will visit the nearly 100 year-old Santa Monica Pier, ride along Santa Monica Beach, pedal past homes of Hollywood's biggest stars and cruise through eclectic Venice stopping at Muscle Beach, the Venice canals and other points of interest to take photos, shop and enjoy the Southern California beach scene. Your guide will also share with you useful tips about what to do and see in Santa Monica and Venice. If you have two legs and can ride a bike, you can do our tour. We ride at a nice, relaxed pace, there are no hills and we make stops every few hundred yards at points of interest along the way. We ride mainly on bike paths and boardwalks and alleyways and through parks, so just pedal and enjoy the ride!

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
