Get ready, get set, get biking. Priority Bicycles, a New York-based company that makes recreational bicycles, has teamed up with the Viceroy Santa Monica to give guests the chance to enjoy the Santa Monica sights while cycling. Guests can ride the stylish bikes to the many nearby dining areas and shops.

The hotel is surrounded by 22 miles of beach and The Strand bike path, making it the perfect jumping off point for a ride. And it’s easy to soak up those 310 days of sunshine Santa Monica boasts while pedaling.

The Priority bikes come with three gears.

Guests can also make up their own cycling routes with the “bike concierge” program; bikers can enjoy a tour that travels to all of Santa Monica’s famous pizza joints or a route that is all about fitness and speed. Before any morning ride, don’t forget to stop by the hotel’s Cast restaurant for an energy boost. Try the 100 percent organic cold-pressed juices and a signature dish like house-made granola.
