    I've ridden the South bay path, and the Venice to Santa Monica path, but I've never gone from one to the other. I was under the impression that you had to go streets around the marina, but I really don't know. Is there path between them? What is the total distance from Redondo Beach all the way to Will Rogers Beach?

    I do think you'd be a little slow on your 24" though. Even when we were both on Cokers I recall you falling a little behind and I never felt like I was ripping along. Heck you might as well come out and try it though. I did Washington Blvd all the way to Will Rogers on my 24" before I had a coker. Those of us with the extra girth can just take more breaks to look at bikini clad rollerbladers.
    Yeah we went from hermosa pier to Venice as I recall, which was past marina del rey. There are some connecting streets in that area but no big deal. I have a freind who has a coker--actually it's the one I sold him--so I may be able to borrow that one. And when we rode that was a long ways back, and I think my legs are stronger now because of all the muni, but we'll see.
    Happy Birthday Terry! Every year you get cooler, younger and unicyclier!
    Be our muniprohpet for many years more.

      I don't think that's been determined. Maybe someone needs to just take charge and set them.

        We are going to do another 36er bike path ride this Sunday. We were thinking 10:00 and meet at the Balona Creek bridge, just left of the Marina Del Rey channel, down the bikepath from the UCLA boathouse.

        This is not a good place to post local rides but our only option now till the So Cal group can come together and for a list like we have with the Santa Barbara guys.

            Are you talking about the bridge over Ballona Creek that is closed to cars?

            I've been over it many times on unicycle but I've never gotten there by car. Are there any good places to park around there?

              Why start in the middle? Why not start at one end or the other; Redondo or Will rogers state beach? The former will be easier to find parking.

                    I'll be there, and luckily I'll have a "loaner coker" with me, with 127's I just picked up from a LBS! I hope we go for at least a 30 miler! Thanks very much to John (Vivalargo) for loaning me his KH 29er in the interim! That's really a great uni!

                    Looking forward to trying that Schlumph 29er!
