We had such a great time on Memorial Day, so we're doing it again...Let's enjoy a wonderful bike ride through the marina and along the beach this 4th of July!
As we leisurely bike through Marina Del Rey and Venice, we'll enjoy views of boats, parks, and of course, the beach! It's a 5-mile trip one-way. For a map of our route, go to --
MEET at 9:30AM at Del Rey Lagoon Park in Playa Del Rey. We'll be at the parking lot driveway at the intersection of 66th and Pacific. We'll start our bike ride PROMPTLY at 9:45AM. We'll probably arrive at Muscle Beach around 10:15AM.
If you don't have a bike, considering renting one for the day. One-day rentals on beach cruisers are just $23 at Daniel's Bicycle Rentals in Fisherman's Village. 13737 Fiji Way, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292 (Free Public Parking at Dock 52 which you'll see on the right before getting to the shops where Daniel's is located.) Our bike route goes right past this shop, so if you want us to stop and meet you there, PLEASE email/text me at least one day before.
The sights and sounds of the Venice Beach boardwalk are entertaining enough. But there is also the MR. & MS. MUSCLE BEACH CONTEST going on -- Bodybuilding, Figure, and Bikini competitions (prelims at 10am, finals at 1pm, FREE). 8-time Ms. Olympia Lenda Murray will also be inducted into the Muscle Beach Hall of Fame.
So watch the show, check out the fitness vendor booths, explore the boardwalk shops, catch the entertainment by local "street performers." The choice is yours...enjoy any or all of it!
Between preliminaries and finals, we'll likely gather at one of the boardwalk eateries to have lunch. We might even consider biking to the legendary Firehouse if we'd like to partake in their healthy (competitor-friendly) options.
We'll probably start our bike ride back to Playa Del Rey around 3 or 3:30pm.
Be sure jot down my number to text/call if you can't find us!
