The LA Marathon is this Sunday, March 20 and if it’s anything like last year traffic here in Santa Monica will be a MESS. Â One solution to getting around this weekend, whether enjoying the festivities or just going about your normal weekend activities is on your trusty 2 wheeled vehicle – your bicycle.
We were happy to get an email from the city detailing the extra bike parking that will be available on race day. Â On Sunday the city will be operating 2 free bike valets downtown as well as the regular valet at the Main Street Farmers Market .
2 Downtown locations 7am to 5pm
Broadway at Ocean
In front of City Hall – 1685 Main Street
Main Street Farmers Market, 9am to 1pm (on Main St. south of Ocean Park)
Additionally note the following bike access
- Main St between Pico Blvd. and Colorado will be open to bikes (but closed to cars
