Bike sharing finally came to the beach in 2016. These sturdy green bikes, with baskets emblazoned with the Hulu logo, can be found at self-serve kiosks all over Santa Monica, Venice and Marina del Rey and are perfect for getting you to and from the new Expo Line stations, around town and along the South Bay Bicycle Trail.

Sign up online, download the Social Bicycles app, or pay on the spot, and you can borrow bikes and return to the nearest kiosk. You can rent hourly (pro-rated), or long-term memberships include up to 90 minutes' daily ride time. The monthly student rate ($7) is the best deal in town.

Other bike rental facilities around town, such as Perry's, provide a wider assortment of recreational equipment.
