    Try Aqua-biking

    by marinarena Written Jun 5, 2015

    Want to get a fun workout in Long Beach while sight-seeing? Head to the Long Beach marina area (the ultimate "Marinarena" site :-) to go aqua-biking, or "hydro-biking"!

    Long Beach Hydrobikes provides the diversion of the aqua biking experience in the city. The business provides dozens of sturdy bikes that float on the waters of Naples Island. Tours are self-guided- meaning that you'd take the trip yourself or with your company. A helpful dock employee is available to give you advice on the bike course, as well as provide a route map.

    Hydrobike tours tend to be very popular during holidays of course, however, on most days, there are plenty of bikes available. Any time can be memorable, but the hydro ride is very special during
    the Holiday Lights Adventure pre-Christmas. The bike route of Naples Island is decorated with pretty Christmas lights on marina homes, boats and other structures.

    Check website for current rates for rides and other info.

    Equipment: Sunglasses are recommended on hot days especially. Also, locals can opt to bring their own life preserve for preference, however, there are perfectly good life preservers on site.

    Bike It By and Away from Beach in L.B.

    by marinarena Written Apr 7, 2013

    Long Beach is a big time bike town. The city enthusiastically encourages people to ride their bikes for pleasure and exercise. At the transit mall area in downtown, there is Bikestation, the hub for anything and everything cycling in L.B, and also an architectural highlight of the city. Parking Visitors can rent bikes to get around to key touristic spots citywide. For locals already with a bike, tuneups are available for $30-$60. Also, safe parking at Bikestation is a benefit for some residents. It is $12 monthly. One day parking is just a buck.

    The Pyramid , built in 1994, is a sport and architectural landmark in Long Beach. In this arena, teams from Cal State Long Beach play. If not into sports, think of this place as an museum on the outside and take pictures :-)

    Beach, Jogging and Kite Flying at Bluff Park

    by supune Updated Apr 4, 2011

    There is a really nice park and stretch of beach along Ocean Blvd.

    Bluff park is a stretch of grass with benches and telescopes right next to the strand.

    There are people jogging and biking through the bike path all the time.

    You can watch the cruise ships come in. There are man made islands off shore that have an Action/Fantasy feel to them (but i've been told they just burn stuff there).

    If you like to fly kites or model airplanes, this is a great place. The bluff and the inland winds create high pressure zones making the park a popular site for those type of enthusiasts.

    My sister and brother-in-law take walks and jog here. But there is a good concetration of good looking female joggers here, so I wouldn't bring a date(just kidding).

    Parking can be difficult in that area.

    Roller Blading along the beach.

    by Grazina Written Feb 26, 2003

    Along the beach all kinds of activity goes on, and one of the big thing is roller blading, it keeps you fit and takes you all around the beach area and even off the beat path (into the city) with these roller blades on your feet.

    Equipment: Protection is very important, helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, and of course the roller blades themselves.
