Each year over 200 bicyclists set off from San Francisco on a 7 day trek down to Los Angeles. This year, the event will cover 545 miles from June 1-7 with a goal of raising awareness of the continuing epidemic of HIV/AIDS. For the 2008 ride, Palms Cycle has joined in this effort at a Platinum Sponsor.
In addition to their donation, they have helped with training and provided discounts to participants. Cap and Candace have established a great relationship with the leadership at AIDS/Life Cycle, and encourage friends of the shop to start thinking about riding in next years event. Training starts in October. For more information check here

Less than two blocks away from the front door of Palms Cycle is the core of Culver City, Sony Studios. Originally the home of MGM, the studios are a major employer for the surrounding cities of Venice, Mar Vista, Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and so on. Not surprisingly, then, that Palms Cycle gets a lot of their biz from THE BIZ. Current bicycles have starred in movies, music videos, TV pilots, and advertisements. This three-wheeler was used on American Idol.
The shop reaches out across the entire USA in search of vintage bicycles in order to have a ready inventory of all types of bikes that can be used for props. Here are a few examples
If the bicycle that will make the perfect prop is not in stock, Cap will go in search for it. If there are none like that available anywhere, it might be possible to make one.
