Biking along the Santa Monica beach is an incredible experience. Sea Mist rentals is located right off the bike path next to the Santa Monica pier which is an ideal location. Renting bikes from them is a very easy and convenient process. Once completing the written information, the staff there finds and adjusts your bike perfectly. Returning it is equally... More

We had researched Santa Monica bike rentals before we left England and thought that 'Sea Mist' would be a good bet. We were not disappointed. The friendly staff allowed us 10 minutes to sort out our bikes before we left on the short ride down to Venice Beach. The bikes were fine, although none of ours had bells, which would... More

The location is right near the beginning of the pier. The cost for a bike is 7 dollars an hour but if you like to exercise and will use it for a couple of hours then its worth it to rent for a day. It is so much fun to ride down to Venice(NOTE: the Strand ends abruptly at Venice... More

Rented 3 bikes from Sea Mist on Sunday 10th. Extremely friendly service. Booked for 2 hrs @ $7/hr with a bike lock for $10 ( refundable ). Arrived back 10 mins early and they reduced the bill by a few dollars. Be aware that some trendy looking bikes don't have brakes ( just stop peddling ) as some of the... More

We rented 2 bicycles early on a week day so there was no wait. One of the bike's chain kept slipping and we exchanged it very easily. The guys working there were all very helpful. I liked that it is right near the bike path so you just hop on your bike and you are off up or down the... More

We rented bikes from Sea Mist during our vacation to California. The rental process was very easy (cash only) The bikes were in very good condition and there was a gentlemen there who assisted with seat adjustments. The rates are hourly and even though we went a little over our hour they only charged us for 1. The location is... More

Rented bikes here with my husband while we were visiting Santa Monica. The guys working were all super nice. It was a really easy process, much faster than other rental places we have used in other destinations before. $20 for all day rental/person which was pretty reasonable.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
