Venice Blvd. to San Vicente Blvd.
Beach fatigued? Want to hit the streets of Venice and beyond on your bike? Then look no further than our cycle guide from Venice to mid-city Los Angeles. Along this route you can admire the Venice Canals, visit the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) in the old Venice jailhouse, check out the amazing Museum of Jurassic Technology, and end the day at the art galleries of St. Elmo Village. For more information, consult Bike Paths below.
Go Northeast on Venice Blvd. If you'd like to visit the Venice Canals, make a right onto Dell Ave. You will come to a bridge that crosses a canal; take one of the many paths that can lead you around this historical area. When you're done, hope back onto Venice Boulevard.
If you are getting thirsty as you approach the intersection of Venice Blvd. and Abbot Kinney Blvd., make a pit stop at Lemonade Restaurant and try one of its many satisfying citrus beverages. Mount back on your bicycle and continue on Venice Blvd. On your left shortly after crossing Shell Ave. you will come across the SPARC building. Head inside this interesting edifice to check out an art exhibit or learn about what SPARC does for the community.
As you ride further north, you will come to the intersection of Venice and Bagley Ave. Here you will find the Museum of Jurassic Technology on your left. Duck inside for a fun and possibly bewildering experience. Enjoy a cup of tea at the end of the museum before you set back out.
Continue on Venice Blvd., riding past the bend in the road. Turn right onto S. Longwood Ave. and in three blocks make a left onto St. Elmo Dr. On your right will be the end of your bike tour, St. Elmo Village. Consult its website for news on events, art galleries, and workshops. When you are finished, turn back onto Venice Blvd. and head back to the beach!
