BIKEWAYS | Over 120 miles of different types of bike paths exist in Long Beach including 40 miles of Class I (bike paths dedicated to bike and pedestrian traffic); nearly 50 miles of Class II routes (a lane marked exclusively for bike travel on roadways); and 30 miles of Class III (bike riders and motorists share the roadway).

SHORELINE PEDESTRIAN BIKE PATH | The scenic 3.1-mile bike path is a seventeen foot wide concrete trail on the beach, extending from Alamitos Avenue on the west to 54th Place on the east. Two 6-foot lanes are designated for bicycle traffic and one 5-foot lane for pedestrians. The path starts at the lighthouse in Shoreline Aquatic Park, juts out and around the Aquarium and the Rainbow Park Lagoon, and then returns to the ocean.  It also intersects the Long Beach Marina Bike Path in one direction, the Long Beach Bike Path and the Queensway Bay Bike Path.

L.A. RIVER BIKEWAY | This 29.1-mile bikeway follows the east side of the Los Angeles River and extends to the Downtown Marina and the Shoreline Aquatic Park Bike Trail.  Along the trail you can find the Los Cerritos Wetlands, a great place to see birds and other wildlife.  It will also take you down into the Port of Long Beach and to the Queen Mary.

SAN GABRIEL RIVER BIKE TRAIL | This 28-mile bikeway runs along the San Gabriel River through El Dorado Regional Park and extends to the street surface bike trail near the Alamitos Bay Marina. This is one of the most popular bike paths in the area with hundreds of riders each day.

EL DORADO PARK BIKE PATH | Running through the magnificent 450-acre El Dorado Regional Park, this four mile bikeway connects with the San Gabriel River bike trail at several locations.
