I'll Have a Segundo
Bike Ride to El Segundo Brewing Company
Three of our favorite B words come together to make this adventure happen: Bike. Beach. Brewery. Own your thirst on this 18-mile (round-trip) beach-and-brews ride in the South Bay. Set out from Torrance Beach at the very south end of Marvin Braude Bike Trail. This paved two-lane bikeway is set just behind the sand, so you get to enjoy blue sky and blue water as you cruise past rows of beach houses, sandy dunes, and the Pacific. In Redondo Beach, the trail takes a cool route across the second story of King Harbor for a loftier Pacific perspective. There’s plenty of beach scene as you pedal north past volleyball nets and a pair of uber-popular piers, Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach. After the beach cities, head inland to El Segundo Brewing Company. There are 14 beers on tap. If you have a dark side, Hyperion’s stout is perfect, while hopheads can sample several IPAs, including the standout Mayberry IPA. Start with a flight of four and to see what pairs best with a bike ride on the beach.
Begin biking from Miramar Park (201 Paseo de la Playa in Redondo Beach). Go down to Marvin Braude Bike Trail and ride north up the Strand. Construction has caused a short detour on the north side of King Harbor. After 7.75 miles, reach the south end of Dockweiler Beach and, before passing Scattergood Steam Plant, turn right up the parking lot ramp to Grand Ave. Bike inland on Grand Ave. for three-quarters of a mile, turn right on Main St. and find El Segundo Brewing Company on the left after one block, at 140 Main St. Bike path is dog-friendly. No dogs at El Segundo Brewing Co.
