Very helpful and encouraging guy. We went there to try out electric cargo bikes before we considered purchasing one. They had several types and styles. We learned a lot. He let us try out another pedal assist as well as the one we reserved which was very helpful.

My friends and I rented cruiser bikes and biked around Santa Monica and Venice. The staff was kind and set us up with what we needed/ answered questions. Bikes were clean and in new condition. Love that they come with locks so you can stop at different places. Shop is conveniently located by a parking lot. Loved the options to rent for different times including half or full day. We enjoyed our ride!…

We decided last minute to rent a couple of bikes to bike down Venice Beach and around Santa Monica. We blindly chose this company and it was perfect! The bikes were clean, adjusted for each person, and equipped with front baskets. The store is conveniently located by the mall and just down the street from the Pier. The bike paths were simple and we had a great time biking down Venice Beach. Staff was awesome and happy to help. …

I always wanted to ride a bike along the coast in LA so decided to rent one for my recent trip. The service at Bike Center is great, I was given lots of excellent information and reassurance of the local traffic so I felt very confident to take my bike on the road. The bike was really good and when I had a problem (snapped chain), it was taken care of swiftly. I can highly recommend the Bike Center and for my next trip in LA I will most definitely rent the bike again.…
