Hermosa Beach is fortunate to have great weather year-round that is convenient and fun for getting around by foot or by bike. From the Strand and streets with sharrows, to the bicycle corrals and fix-it stations that can be found around town, the City is consistently working to provide a safe environment for those that choose to get around by bike. The City continues to invest in making our sidewalks more functional and accessible through the construction of curb ramps and removal of obstructions such as poles and utility boxes. The City is also investing in making sure our students can get to and from school safely each day as they walk/bike/roll and make their way to school.
