Safety Cycle

Safety Cycle, located at 23112 Hawthorne Blvd, Torrance is the place to go for your new bike purchase, tune-up, or old bike repair. The friendly staff is headed by Kyle with assistance from his staff & top mechanic Miguel. While their main focus is Specialized and Cannondale bicycles, they have other manufacturers too, including electric bikes should you be so inclined. Safety Cycle is a great supporter of BCCC, they offer a generous 20% discount to members for purchases, the discount does not apply to labor.

Where's the green down there?


Where we ride...

One of the points of interest on the Palos Verdes Scenic + Oddballs route and the "Lite" version, is the view from Punta Place in PVE.

Close by the view point is the mansion at 1804 Via Visalia, owned by Masafumi Miyamoto, developer of Nintendo and PlayStation games. Purchased in 1996 for $7.9 million, the house was on the market in 2019 for $17 million, it didn't sell. Overpriced perhaps? Miyamoto reportedly also owns the park like area in front of the house to ensure his ocean view cannot be blocked!

How much staff does it take to keep cobwebs at bay?
