One of eight Santa Monica and Venice locations renting bikes, blades, beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, boogie boards, volleyballs, storage lockers and more. KCRW members get a 15% discount. Private and corporate groups of all sizes accommodated. Plus, it’s playground and cafe-adjacent (actually, what isn’t around here?) in case the kids (or BF) throw a tantrum on the bike ride.

Bike and blade rentals just south of the Santa Monica Pier. Also, repairs and sales of new and used gear. Con: Yes, nerds, Spokes ‘N Stuff rents Segways. Terrorize people on the boardwalk if you must. Pro: They sell chalk blocks for use on the various adjacent gym apparati. I’ll be the guy doing the iron cross.

In the Breakwater parking lot at Venice and Ocean Front Walk. And don’t run me down with your rented recumbent tricycle.

Bike, blade and beach rentals right in the thick of things at Windward Ave and the boardwalk. This means you can watch the loincloth man balancing on a ladder while clutching rubber cobras while they’re setting up your ride. Jay’s also performs repairs, just in case you get a flat or blow out a blade wheel.

In the parking lot by the Venice Pier at Washington Blvd. and Ocean Front Walk. Giving park-and-ride new meaning.
