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.

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.
