I no longer live in the LA area so hopefully someone up there will tune in... PCH is heavily congested north from Santa Monica and in many places there is no bike lane. If you are used to that, especially duringthe week when travel is at its peak... then try it.
From Santa Monica, there is the Strand down to Rat Beach, Torrance. I used to live in El Segundo and my after work ride was from El Segundo to Santa Monica on the Strand. There are a few spots where you have to be on road (through Playa Del Rey) but generally its all bike trail and during the week, light travel although you will have to watch out for pedestrians.
If you don't mind some driving, you can drive down to Torrance and park at Rat Beach and then do the Palos Verdes Loop ride. Also if you drive north, past Santa Monica to Camarillo and Ventura, lots of beautiful "country" riding out there.
Will be interesting to see what others write...
