An exceptional bicycle rental operation is one that:
carries different bikes ranging from electric bikes to mountain bikes to road bikes.
delivers your bike(s) to you on time.
rents you as many bikes as you would like for as many days as you want to ride.
provides you with maintenance when something goes wrong.
offers accidental damage insurance.
Here at Synaptic Cycles, we carry different road bike brands such as Masi, Cannondale, Focus, and Scott.
We offer some popular electric bikes such as Aventon, Haro i/O, and our own Synaptic Cruisers, Folding and Fat-Tire eBikes.
As far as bike types go, we also have some high-performance mountain bikes such as the Haro Double Peak.
We regularly deliver bikes to various locations in Los Angeles County, Orange County, as well as San Diego County. In essence, we serve all of Southern California which is no easy task for most other bike rental services out there.
You can call us and ask for only one bike or have us deliver 14 bikes to you. At the end of the day, it’s up to you.
If you find yourself wanting to keep the bike for a few more days or even a few more weeks, we got you covered. In fact, we will let you ride it more at a discounted price.
Last but not least, if you roll over a sharp object and get a flat or experience any other accident, our insurance covers it all. You can go to a closeby bike shop, get the bike fixed, keep the receipt and we’ll reimburse you.
If you’re still not convinced as to why you should choose for us to take care of you, give us a call at (949) 484-6409.

We recently opened up our service area to provide Los Angeles area road bike rentals. Just like our shop that serves Orange County and San Diego County, our new shop offers free delivery and pick up of your bike rentals within our regular service area. Our LA area rental store’s service area is centered in Santa Monica and extends outward in an approximate 30 mile radius.
Greg Donovan is the co-owner of our LA road bike rental shop, and we thought it might be worthwhile to introduce him to you. On the left is a picture of Greg posing with one of the brand new Focus Cayo Evo 2.0 bikes in his fleet.
Greg, age 23, is an Atlanta, Georgia transplant to Irvine, California. He has been an avid athlete since his youth participating in many sports and activities including baseball, cross country, basketball, football, roller hockey, snow-boarding, surfing, mountain biking, and motocross. Greg’s current athletic endeavors are focused on triathlon competitions, setting his sights on competing in a half-Ironman distance this year (2014) and a full Ironman in 2015.
Greg has a keen interest in the bicycle business, recently teaming up with Joe Bartoe of Synaptic Cycles to expand the road bike rental business. In preparation for this endeavor, he wanted to brush up on his mechanical skills and recently completed a course in bicycle maintenance at United Bicycle Institute in Oregon. He’s also been working with Joe, learning the business and how to set up bikes for customers. Greg looks forward to serving other avid cyclists who have the desire to experience the beautiful California scenery on two wheels.
The new fleet at our Los Angeles shop contains a number of Shimano DI2 bikes from both Focus and Volagi. The Focus bikes are all Cayo Evo 2.0 with full Ultegra DI2. He also has a number of brand new Volagi Liscio 2 bikes with full Ultegra DI2 and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. Other offerings are Volagi Liscio 2 bikes with brand new Ultegra 11 and TRP Hy/Rd disc brakes. All the bikes in the fleet are incredible riding bikes, ready for your Southern California riding adventures.
Pricing for rentals are the same at both the LA area and the San Diego/Orange County Stores. We offer the same level of service and the same experience at both shops so please do not hesitate to contact Greg and set up your rental if you’ll be staying in the greater Los Angeles area.
We are really excited about opening up our service area so we can better serve more of Southern California, and we are especially excited to bring Greg into the business! Please, help us to welcome Greg and help him to establish his shop’s presence in the greater Los Angeles area. Greg can be reached at (310)925-3969. Give him a call to reserve a bike when you’re in town!
Usually, when the phone rings around here, we find that customers have some familiar questions for us. “We are staying in [insert town/city here]. Do you deliver there? Is there an extra charge for that?”
Just to have the record set straight, we want to let you know that we deliver high-end road bike rentals to areas within an ~30 mile radius of Dana Point, for free. I know this might not be very helpful to those of you who are not familiar with Orange County and San Diego County.
It’s difficult to create and exhaustive list of places within this radius, but we can to give you some idea.
In San Diego County, we deliver to Oceanside, Carlsbad, Leucadia, La Costa, Encinitas and Del Mar along the coast, and we’ve delivered inland to Rancho Santa Fe, Vista, San Marcos, and Escondido.
In Orange County, we can easily deliver to the coastal areas such as San Clemente, Capistrano Beach, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Corona Del Mar, Newport Beach, Newport Coast and Huntington Beach. We have also delivered to inland areas like Rancho Santa Margarita, Ladera Ranch, Mission Viejo, Irvine, Anaheim, Anaheim Hills, Orange, and Fullerton.
This is not meant to be an all-inclusive list but it covers most. Don’t worry, we don’t get angry or testy if you ask where we deliver. We just wanted to say it somewhere so people can find it. So give us a call and we’ll set you up with your bike and get you out on the road!
