We'll start in Venice-the #1 tourist destination in California, to catch a glimpse of surfers, sailboats, canals and then the posh shops and art galleries of Abbot Kinney-aptly named the hippest street in America by GQ Magazine.
Then it’s off to Muscle Beach, Dogtown’s skateboard park, rollerskaters and famous basketball courts-along the way see artists in action at the graffiti wall, murals, old brothels, speakeasies, movie studios, secret walk-streets and street performers on one of the top ten boardwalks in the US-from Rastafarians at the drum circle to chain-saw jugglers, fire-breathers, guys walking on glass, break dancers, acrobats, and hear about local legends Charlie Chaplin, Jim Morrison and Arnold Schwarzennegger-it offers an unforgettable cultural experience!
Then we head to Santa Monica’s Original Muscle Beach, the pier’s ferris Wheel and famous Route 66 sign, stories of local celebrities, the bourgeois Promenade shops, musical performances, historical landmarks, amazing architecture, hidden gems, fruit trees and gardens at Tongva Park-there will be great photo opportunities at each stop!
We will be bicycling for approximately 2.5 hours depending on everyone's pace.
Other things to note
Rain or extremely windy weather will cancel the tour. If you can-tips are appreciated :)

My family grew up in Santa Monica and I love to share the local lore, legends and landmarks. I work out at muscle beach, have done stand-up comedy, studied film and love to point out all of the local movie locations, famous celebrity homes and haunts. I come from a family of artists, worked in local galleries and love to point out hidden murals. I’ve led tours for a decade including the Venice Art Crawl and as VP for the Venice Historical Society with clients that have included Google and LA city council members. Let me show you the best photo opportunities at the beach in Los Angeles!

The westside. As the locals say, we’ll be AWOL—Always West of Lincoln—Lincoln being the street that separates the beach from the city. See why Santa Monica was voted among the Top Ten Beach Cities in the World by National Geographic and why Venice is the #1 tourist destination in California. We can even head the other direction to beautiful Marina Del Rey and view the world’s largest small boat craft harbor.

Our guide was a great story teller. We saw a lot of stuff we wouldn't have seen if it wasn't for the tour. She was flexible and customized the trip some to what we wanted. It was a cool way to see the area in a short amount of time.

This was an awesome experience for my two friends and me. We flew in from separate cities and was chilling around Santa Monica. Barbara's depth of knowledge about the area was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed the places she took us during the bike trip. I highly recommend this activity for people who visit Santa Monica and Venice beach!

We loved the bike tour with Barbara a Venice local who knows exactly where the beautiful places are. We had a private tour which was amazing as we could enjoy the tour and stop when we wanted to take pictures. You will see a lot of artsy Venice and the beach of Santa Monica as well as the pier. Thank you Barbara! Everyone who visits Venice or Santa Monica should definitely book the bike tour!

Barbara was super knowledgeable as she lives in Venice and the tour was great. We were lucky with the weather too given that it's November. I would definitely recommend Barbara's tour if you want to cover Venice and Santa Monica on the bike.

My 20 something daughter and I very much enjoyed the experience. We lucked out because it was a gorgeous day and the ride was not strenuous at all. Barbara was super accommodating and flexible which added to our enjoyment. Loved exploring all the nooks and crannies of the Venice neighborhood. Recommend going booking earliest ride as the street parking is much easier on the weekend and after the ride you are able to have lunch near by.

The bike tour was a great experience! Barbara was a great tour guide. She took us on a nice bike path from Venice to Santa Monica beach that was great for sightseeing. I would definitely go again
