Before riding your bicycle on the street, or on the bike path, please read our new illustrative guide Smart Cycling in Santa Monica.
Based on the California Vehicle Code, the advice is geared (pun intended) toward Santa Monica riders, but applies anywhere in California you choose to ride.
Drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians all share the same roadways - and a responsibility to travel safely.
We urge you to keep your safety and the safety of those around you in mind at all times.
