The e-bike craze has taken the nation by storm. Electric bikes work by switching automatically to a quiet motor to give you more pedal power. These bikes can be conveniently rented in Los Angeles or nearby communities like Hermosa Beach and used to effortlessly explore the easily accessible coastline. We offer tips below on how to enjoy gorgeous coastal views with a rental e-bike during your visit.

Start in a Nearby Beachfront City like Hermosa Beach

Located about 40 minutes from L.A., Hermosa Beach is a great place within Los Angeles County to find trails where you can e-bike and see amazing coastal views. The main bike path here starts at 35th Street by the end of Manhattan Beach. Hermosa Beach also has a cement pedestrian path known as The Strand that’s perfect for a coastal e-bike ride. You can even stay on this pathway and continue to take in the coastal views all the way to Santa Monica. If you’re visiting and looking for bike rentals, Hermosa Beach is home to several shops that rent bikes.

Explore Coastal Trails in Nearby Beachfront Locales

Thanks to the extra pedal power you get from an e-bike, you can easily bike your way to some of the other beachfront communities close to Hermosa Beach. For instance, Manhattan Beach is less than 10 minutes away and accessible by paths where e-bikes can be used. What’s more, the Redondo Beach portion of the bike path you can access from Hermosa Beach runs to the pier here and continues to provide postcard-perfect coastal views as you ride your way to Torrance Beach.

Consider Day Trips to Other E-Bike-Friendly Trails/Paths in L.A. County

When you think of Los Angeles, you may not immediately think of coastal accessibility, so you may be surprised to know there are some other great spots not far from Hermosa Beach where you can e-bike and see various parts of the coastline. For example, Ballona Creek Bike Path is accessible from Duquesne Avenue in Culver City and will take you to the beach.

Another great e-bike-friendly L.A. County trail to consider checking out is the Marvin Braude Bike Trail. It’s another partial section of The Strand that will take you along the Santa Monica Bay shoreline. The northern part of this trail goes to Will Rogers State Beach in Pacific Palisades. If you e-bike to the southern portion of the trail, you’ll be treated to coastal views from Torrance County Beach. The power boost provided by your e-bike can also take you to Dockweiler State Beach, another picturesque L.A. County destination. There are smaller paths here that go along the docks in Marina del Rey.

Prepare for Your E-Bike Ride & Enjoy

As mentioned above, e-bikes can be rented locally in many L.A. County communities, including Hermosa Beach. It can also be helpful to download a local bike path or map app so you can see what paths are available as you ride or regain your bearings if you need some added guidance.
