Pedal over to Redmons, the sister shop to L.A. Brakeless. Founded by partners Anna Martin, Dave Cargill, and Joshua White, the old-school Mar Vista bicycle boutique (antique road signs, vintage tile flooring) harks back to a time when there was only one speed: cruise.
Creatures of comfort find superior ergonomic design in elegant Dutch models like the Montego Daily Urban and the Gazelle Tour Populair. And a wide selection by everybody’s favorite Cali manufacturer, Linus, satisfies speed demons and easy riders alike.
Fill your basket with nifty accessories, like Brooks England leather grips, stylish saddlebags by Velo Orange and Basil, and Yakkay helmets fashioned as herringbone fedoras.
Don’t want to ride solo? Sign up for a frequently scheduled group excursion.
And set the friendship wheels in motion.
Redmons, 12218 Venice Boulevard, between Centinela Avenue and Grand View Boulevard, Mar Vista (310-313-6600 or redmonsla.com).
