All stores are closed for lunch from 1:30PM to 2:00PM.

Bike sales and rentals

Due to the worldwide bike shortage, our inventory of new bikes is very limited, especially with bikes below the $1,000-$1,500 price range. We do receive new shipments every week, so please come into the store and pre-order yours! 

Due to Coronavirus safety precautions, bike rental services are temporarily on hold.

In-store Shopping

All customers are welcome to wear masks. 

Per LA County public health rules, unvaccinated people are required to wear masks.

You may have a wait when visiting our stores, especially at peak times of day. 

In order to maintain distance with masked and unmasked customers, a limited number of customers is allowed in the store at one time. 

Calling the Store

Our call volume has been much higher than usual, but we are working hard to answer phone calls. Each store has staff dedicated to only answering calls, but we may be unable to answer when you call. If you cannot connect with a Helen's Cycles employee, please call back again. We appreciate your patience and understanding.


At this time, we cannot accept returns.

Helen's Cycles group rides are back in effect! Check our Group Rides page for updates.
