AKRE’S Guide to Your Coastal Adventure

What better way to enjoy your weekend than a ride along the coast?  We suggest you leave your car parked and try some different wheels to enjoy your ride.  The Marvin Braude Bike Trail also know as The Stand is dubbed one of the best bikes trails in all of Los Angeles.

We couldn’t agree more!  The trail begins at Torrance County Beach and ends at Will Rodgers State Beach, stretching 21.5 miles along the coast.  A one way trip can average two hours, take your time and enjoy the views and people watching.  Take a break midway and grab a bite to eat at Perry’s Cafe in Marina Del Rey.


Does 44 miles of biking sound intimidating?  We have just the place for you to rent a bike.  Active Movement located at 2803 Main Street, Santa Monica, CA offers electric bikes to rent.   You can turn the electric on when you start to get tired to help assist you along the way, or if you are for a challenge you can turn the electric off and pedal like you are riding a normal bike.





Are you looking for more of a challenge than riding a bike 44 miles? Skateboarding is not only more challenging but a very SoCal way to ride the trail.   Arbor Skateboards offers artistically crafted sustainable skateboards.  Arbor Skateboards located at 102 Washington Blvd, Venice, CA.

Is it family time on the weekends?  Does Sally want to rollerblade, and Sam wants to bike ride?  Perry’s Cafe not only has numerous locations along the boardwalk, but they also rent out more than just bikes.  They have rentals for everyone in the family; from tandem bikes, rollerbaldes, to baby seats.





Do you have family or friends in from out of town?  Why not show off our awesome coast on a guided segway tour?!  Segway Los Angeles offers a guided tour around Santa Monica and Venice Beach.  You can also rent the segways and go out on your own, be a tour guide to your guest for the day.  Segway Los Angeles is located at 1660 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica, CA.
