I am a California resident (for 10+ years now) from Maryland and one of my all time favorite SoCal "tourist" activities is to rent a beach cruiser here at Blazing Saddles & ride along the beach. Typically I'll ride up to Will Rodgers State Park and then back down to Venice for lunch. Blazing Saddles will also rent you a bike lock so you can stop for lunch and not have to worry about someone stealing the bike. Blazing Saddles is reasonably priced...especially considering they are right in the heart of a major tourist attraction and their service is great!

I seriously love this place! The guy who owns it is super helpful and honest. I thought I needed an expensive repair on my bike, and came in ready to pay. He showed me how to fix it on my own. I bought a bicycle pump out of appreciation for an honest business. Highly recommend!
Cynergy has a knack for having the high-end replacement parts that few others in town do. Staff seemed smart and classy without the arrogance of "Bicycle John" for instance.
