Video of the tour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-bYAY4D5kM Our professional guides (Chelsea, Sandra, Patrick, Chad, Tucker, Shaun or me) will lead you on an unforgettable 2-3 hr guided coastal bike ride beginning with a leisurely cruise through the streets of downtown Santa Monica, a photo op at my favorite coastline view of Malibu, and a visit to the historical Santa Monica Pier and the original Muscle Beach. Then, we'll travel to Venice Beach, the birthplace of skateboarding and training grounds for a young Arnold Schwarzenegger, and recognized around the world for its vibrant street art. We'll stroll along the colorful Venice Boardwalk to see local artists and watch live street performances. Afterwards, we'll pedal to the picturesque Venice Canals, the quaint Italian inspired community, and then bike through Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice's trendy gathering place for both locals and visitors, declared by GQ as "The Coolest Block In America". We'll show you one of our favorite ice cream shops in the city and look for celebrity sightings. Finally, we'll head back via Main Street, a beachside shopping district lined with cafes and boutiques. Let's go on an adventure!
