If you love to ride your bike, it's hard to do better than the coastal areas of Los Angeles. Just minutes from the heart of the city, you can climb to the skies, or pedal alongside the famous beaches of Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, and more.
Here's a curated set of some of our favorite rides, with a bias to the Helen's Cycles Santa Monica/beach areas. Click on the links to view the routes on Strava, where you can also download the GPX file to your phone or computer. Be sure to join our Strava club.
