About The Bike Center
When we opened our place in 2011, our mission was to provide a support center for bicycle commuters in our city. We connected with people like us: people who love to ride bikes and want to learn more about them. Over the years our business has grown, but that love of the ride is still at the heart of everything we do. Today we serve every need L.A. has when it comes to bicycling in our city. Not only do we provide commuter parking and amenities, but we welcome cyclists new and experienced alike to shop our bikes and retail, book a tour of the city, and bring their bikes in for repairs. The pros at The Bike Center are ready to welcome you to the family and help you with anything you need.

We made reservations ahead of time and everything worked as planned. We were able to get the bikes we wanted and they were in pretty good shape. The location is convenient to getting on the bike trail. We road to Manhattan Beach and back without any issues.

Bikes were in great shape. We rented the "Comfy Cruisers". They have 7 speeds, which was helpful. It was easy to reserve the night before. Everything worked great and it was easy. I'd recommend!

We had a wonderful private cycle tour with Chad who was full of interesting stories and jokes. It’s a gentle and beautiful cycle along the cycle path beside the beach along to Venice and then through the canals. We would thoroughly recommend both the tour and Chad.
