Recommendations for riding in the Santa Monica area.

Howdy all:

I live in Long Beach, and belong to a Long Beach-based cycling club. I know all the routes in my area (LART, SGRT, SART, and of course, Long Beach to Newport Beach via PCH).

I recently began dating a girl who lives in Santa Monica, and we're begun the deal where we spend the night at each other's place . Given that, on some mornings where I'm at her place, I'll be setting out for uncharted cycling territory. For roadies who live in that area, where do you ride? What about Santa Monica to Malibu? Is PCH as dicey there as it is from Long Beach to Newport? How about that path the runs along the beach from Santa Monica to Manhattan Beach and Redondo? Too crowded with joggers and beach cruisers?

Also, what about Santa Monica-based bike shops that do shop rides, and/or local cycle clubs that would let a visitor ride with them?
