Los Angeles is known for its car culture, but its bike paths welcome a growing number of bicyclists. To help bicyclists explore LA, Metro has a variety of options so passengers can combine their ride with Metro Rail and bus. Twice a year, CicLAvia opens miles of city streets to pedestrians and bicyclists, allowing participants to walk, bike, socialize, celebrate and learn more about LA. The coastal bike path that runs through Santa Monica and Venice is perhaps the area’s most popular bike path, starting in the Pacific Palisades and continuing between Playa del Rey and Redondo Beach. LA county’s longest bike path is the San Gabriel River Trail, which runs almost 40 miles between Azusa and Seal Beach. Other bike paths include one that runs along Ballona Creek, another that parallels the Los Angeles River, and a path that winds its way through the Sepulveda Dam Recreation Area.
