We are proud to be Carmel-by-the-Sea's only bike shop in it's 100 plus year history. We are right in the heart of the town on Ocean Avenue. We are the closest bike shop to Carmel Beach and 17 Mile Drive. We have been chosen as the best bike shop in Monterey County by the readers of The Carmel Pinecone and Monterey County Weekly. We are the only bike shop that has a permit granted by the city of Carmel to operate bike rentals and guided tours in Carmel-by-the-Sea, as well as Point Lobos. Not all bikes are the same- we rent the best quality bikes you can buy- Specialized, Vintage Electric, Tern & Butchers & Bicycles (Pedego, Blix, and Rad are entry-level, low quality bikes mass produced in China with low quality components- these are the bikes you will typically find for rent at other locations in Monterey). Rent from us and get discounted rentals at other scenic California locations up and down the coast (we have shops from LA to SF).
