Beach Cruiser Rental: Cycle Venice Beach

Cycle in style along the LA Coast: Beach Cruiser Rentals

Why walk when you can ride? What with its Pacific-parallel cycle lanes, cast of eccentric characters, iconic sights, and unmistakable energy, the beaches and boardwalks of Santa Monica and beyond beg to be explored by bike. And we’re not talking about just any bike, but the stylish and shamelessly cool classic beach cruiser. You can hire them for 24 hours to discover this corner of the west coast at your leisure.

The price includes all the locks, baskets, lights, and helmets (so all the bells and whistles) you need to make the experience entirely hassle-free. Plus, these single-gear bikes are suitable for all the family, so all you need to think about is where you’ll be cruising to on a full day of adventure.

Since you’ll be picking up your bikes in front of the tennis courts in Venice Beach (between 19th and 20th Ave.), you’ll be right there to explore this Italian-influenced area. It’s home to some interesting architecture, and also hosts some truly alluring sculptures and legal graffiti walls. Take a ride down the streets and enjoy the ‘off-the-wall’ art by world-renowned street artists.

From Venice Beach Boardwalk, you could head north to the wonderland of Santa Monica Pier. Join the kids (and adults — let’s be honest) at Pacific Park, grab some tickets and go wild on the amusements. FYI, the Pacific Wheel is fantastic if you want to get a snap of the coastline, with amazing views at the top. Since you’ve got the bike for 24 hours, why not pop back in the evening when it’s all lit up as well? It’s a great spot to grab some lunch or dinner too. Did someone say Bubba Gump?

If you feel like going for a longer ride, then LA makes it easy. Not only does it give you amazing views to gawp at while you ride, but they also give you a dedicated highway to do all your sightseeing on. The Marvin Braude Bike Trail — locally known at The Strand — is a wide 22-mile, ocean-side bike path, stretching from Will Rogers State Beach, in the Pacific Palisades in the north, to Torrance County Beach in the south. Along this route, you’ve got all the sights like Muscle Beach (the old site is actually back at Santa Monica, near the pier), Marina Del Rey, Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach. If you’re up for the ride, you can happily sail along The Strand, stopping to scrunch your toes in the sand and enjoy the beach culture of the wonderful neighbourhoods all the way along Los Angeles iconic coastline. It’s quite a stretch… but so is the beach!

We’re sorry to say that it’s taking much longer than usual to process your refund. It’s taking longer than we’d like as well. This is due to the number of requests being sent to us and our teams working from home.

We’re doing our best to help every customer, but we’re not able to always meet the 15, 45 or 90-day timeframes we originally stated for every customer. As always, we’re grateful for everyone’s patience and understanding. It means the world to us.

I returned early from holiday and have further questions?
