E-Bikes on The Strand Should Not Have Their Motors On

One of the main appeals of e-bikes is that they allow the rider to go further, faster, and with less effort. For that reason, all e-bikes must not engage their electric power while on The Strand (the boardwalk), that being said, the reason e-bikes are so great are for getting up those steep hills around the South Bay.

For that reason, on Hermosa Beach’s Strand, the most popular place to bike in the city, e-bikes must obey the posted speed limit of 8 mph. The best way to do that is by not allowing e-bikes to turn on their pedal assist while on The Strand (the boardwalk).

Are Dogs Allowed on Hermosa Beach’s Strand?

There isn’t a better place to take your dog on a walk than Hermosa Beach’s Strand, but with the amount of people, bikers, and skaters on The Strand it’s easy to wonder if dogs are allowed at all.

Dogs are allowed on Hermosa Beach’s Strand as long as they are kept on a leash. However, all pets are always prohibited on the beach at Hermosa Beach. When you walk with your dog on The Strand, please remember to pick up after them! With the amount of people and dogs that walk along Hermosa Beach it’s easy for waste to build up quickly. For that reason, everyone must always pick up after their pets.

Are Dogs Allowed on Hermosa Beach’s Pier?

Just like the beach, dogs and other animals are not allowed on Hermosa Beach’s pier whether on or off a leash. The Strand is nearby though, so if you’re with your dog then there is plenty of places to walk near the pier.
