There are many bicycle paths and routes in the Santa Monica area.  Bicycle helmets are not required by law, but it is always a good idea to wear one. Please remember it is illegal to bike on the sidewalks in Santa Monica, and cyclists must follow all the same rules and regulations as a car driver. Infractions can be considered “moving violations” and be put on your driver’s license.
