Dear visitors,


The SAFER AT HOME order put into place by State and local authorities on March 19, 2020, designates bicycle shops as essential businesses. With this in mind, THE BIKE CENTER SANTA MONICA will be reopen for limited business daily from 9am to 5pm beginning Saturday, March 21, 2020.

The order specifically recommends people take a walk, ride a bike, hike, jog and be in nature for exercise — just keep at least six feet between you and others in the community.

To serve our customers The Bike Center will have a mechanic on duty Monday thru Thursday for repairs and sales. A customer service representative will be on duty Friday thru Sunday for repair and rental pickups & drop-offs, and accessory sales. We encourage you to call ahead or email us to make an appointment before arriving at the shop.

Bike rentals will be allowed by appointment only so we can manage the number of people at our store. To reserve bikes please visit:

While many of our normal daily activities may be restricted, bike riding can invigorate us and boost our optimism. The bicycle has always been a useful tool and a source of joy. During these turbulent times, cycling offers a healthy break, both physically and mentally, to those stuck indoors more than usual.

Thank you for your continued support, we want to encourage safe behavior while providing much needed outdoor activity to people in the community. All bikes will be sanitized before and after each rental or repair. Please, stay safe, and know that we are here to help everyone get thru this difficult time.

Appointments and general questions will be answered by phone at (310) 656-8500 ext 0; and by email at

Wishing everyone peace and good health,
The Bike Center Staff and Management.
