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.

Santa Monica Pier adjacent skate and bike rentals. This place, like many rental establishments along the beach, is directly adjacent to a bar. Upon return from strenuous bike ride chasing bathing suit-clad rollerbladers, it’s good to know there’s a place nearby to hydrate as necessary.

Perry’s will hook you up. And it’s to this location that all you fledgling bladers should come for a lesson with the incomparable Debbie Merrill.

Another Perry’s, this one in the beach parking lot at Rose Ave. looking a little like a bunker. 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.

Rent or buy bikes and blades at this longtime Venice beach business. Plenty of quality bikes to rent. And if you’re considering buying, they have some cool beach cruisers at affordable prices. The staff is warm and fuzzy. Okay, some are warm and fuzzy. Some are just fuzzy.

Bike and blade rentals as well as beach gear, including boogie boards and surf boards. The place also sells stuff like flip-flops and various beach wear and accessories. A plan: Rent bikes here, roar around Venice for a while, bring them back in time to snag a table next door at On the Waterfront for a sunset Erdinger. Cheers.

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.
