The Do's and Don'ts of Marina del Rey Biking

Bike through the Marina with these friendly tips!

Biking is an everyman’s sport. It’s something most people learn as a child and it’s a talent that’s hard to lose, hence the well-known and overused phrase “It’s like riding a bike!”

It’s also an agreeable pastime for all skill levels. You have your leisurely morning cruisers, your “it takes me from point A to point B-ers,” your fitness “cyclists” and more, all enjoying  the freeing feeling of the wind whooshing though the divots in their helmet.

Luckily for Angelenos, it’s just a fact that there’s no better place to ride than Marina del Rey. To make sure everyone can enjoy the cool views and charming, bike-friendly haunts of this popular waterfront community, read on for our Do’s and Don’ts of cruising the Marina.

While a bicyclist can enjoy a clearly marked MDR path from Washington Blvd. to Ballona Creek, anyone wishing to journey to/from the breakwater can do so only on Via Marina, which has no bike lanes, nor provides bicyclists any direction or instruction. In fact, those of us who live on Panay, Marquesses, Tahiti or Bora have long encountered confused bicyclists looking for a way to navigate the waterfront paths -- or even a bike friendly way to get to a real bike path. MDR is a nice bike ride, assuming you know you need to enter the Admiralty path at Washington and Mildred. Otherwise, it's sharing car lanes all the way.
