Saturday Beach Bike ride
We’re headed to the Beach again this week !!! We’ll be starting on the Marvin Braude Bike Trail (aka the beach bike path) at Temescal Cyn and Pacific Coast highway and heading south to the end of Washington Blvd in Venice, checking out a bit of the Marina a bit farther up Washington Blvd and stopping for a bite to eat and/or coffee (probably both) and returning. We usually also stop to watch boats come in and out of the channel in the marina.
I’m not biking too fast at the moment, so we’ll be doing about 9-10 mph at best. We are leaving promptly at 1:00 If you’re late, get on the bike path and head South (ocean will be on your right).
A helmet is also strongly suggested and a light jacket is also a good idea, especially as it gets cold quickly when the sun goes down. Though we probably won’t need it for this trip, a bike headlamp is always a good thing to have just in case…
