Marvin Braude Bike Trail, Malibu, CA
Marvin Braude Bike Trail
The Marvin Braude Bike Trail, also known as The Strand, is a paved bicycle path that runs mostly along the Pacific Ocean shoreline in Los Angeles County, California. The northern terminus of the trail is a paved Class 1 bicycle path at Will Rogers State Beach in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles. The southern terminus of the trail is in Torrance County Beach in Torrance. The path is 22 miles (35 km) long, and the midpoint between the two ends of the path is near the southern end of the Playa del Rey residential area.
The path rolls through many different beach communities and piers and you'll get to know the beach side like you've never seen it before. But be warned--it's a killer --43 miles, so only the brave apply. If you're looking for some good cardio and you have 4 or 5 hours to spare, give the full bike path a try. You won't regret it.
