It's a smooth ride for bicyclists who are heading from the Hermosa Beach Strand to Marina Way in Redondo Beach - and now it's one of the country's best.

People For Bikes, a national organization advocating for safe bike riding, has named the new Redondo Beach pathway one of the top ten best new bike lanes in the country for 2015.

The organization, calling the lanes "gorgeous," lauded the new pathway for its "low-stress access" to a popular beach area, and for making bike riding "a viable alternative" to car traffic.

The Redondo Beach bike lanes were the only bike lanes in California to make the top ten list. 

The new pathway, known as the Harbor Gateway and Bike Path Improvement Project, was completed and officially unveiled in June. It…

You can say a lot about the role of MB Post in getting downtown Manhattan Beach to be seen as a dining mecca. 

You almost can't say enough about the way that the restaurant's Bacon-Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits have become the superstars of the menu.

An ambitious new home near the Hermosa Beach pier at 801 Hermosa Ave. (4br/7ba, 4000 sqft.) has drawn oohs and aaahhs since its unique "Lighthouse" design took shape. Now it has sold, but $1 million less than the list price, and almost $2 million less than its very first asking price.

The final sale price is $4.015M, or you can call it roughly $1,000/PSF.

When this property was first listed in August 2015, the asking was $5.800M, but that quickly dropped to $5.250M and then $4.999M as a new agent was brought in to partner on the marketing of the home.

At about $1,000/PSF, the Lighthouse becomes quite nearly the least pricey new construction in Hermosa Beach this year. Here are the other sales of 2015 single-family builds in the Hermosa Sand…
