Venice Beach prefers hitchhiking to BMWs, selling seashells to selling out, surfing waves to surfing the web, and wet suits to… well… any other kind. So when our team of young business dudes (no neckties or briefcases here) set out to provide a service to meet the needs of our beach-bred neighbors, we knew it had to be as bold and groovy as Venice itself.
What we came up with? VENICE FIXIES: sleek, neon, edgy, classic.
To celebrate Venice Beach’s favorite mode of transportation and the urban beach city itself, Venice Fixies is proud to offer its line of Venice-inspired fixed gear bikes.
On a Venice Fixie, not only are you fighting carbon emissions and bumper-to-bumper traffic, but experiencing the open road, open air, and open-mindedness known best by those who call Venice home. Feel the ocean breeze on your face as you pedal on, wherever you may be going.
Venice Fixies: Ride on.
When we walk to work, we step on Hollywood stars.What you call the beach, we call Malibu. We brush elbows with celebrities night after night. And we always know what to wear.
That’s right. We live in LA LA land, tinsel town, the city of angels. Fashion is our mantra; the Sunset Strip, our Mecca. Sure, we eat up the sunshine and the smog. Who cares? There’s a dark side to all of us, right?
We call it: Sunset Attitude – embracing our historic home on The Strip, with an edge that cuts through traffic, like only a native can.
Sunset Attitude is a lifestyle store featuring our very own private label, as well as hand picked up-and-coming designers. Because we know the costs of cocktails, black nail polish, and vegan sushi can add up fast, we’re here to contribute to your glam lifestyle without breaking your gold-studded wallet.
The Dog Bakery
At The Dog Bakery, we’ll never judge you for loving your dog too much. We won’t roll our eyes at picture after picture of Sparky, when Sassy’s wearing a tiara, if Mr. Noodle only drinks bottled water, not even if Peanut friends us on Facebook. Hey, we love our pups just as much you do! We understand your pooch deserves a little luxury every now and again. That’s why we’ve created a destination where dog lovers can spoil their furry companions the right way – with all natural dog treats, made from the consciously-sourced stuff we feed our own pups!
The Dog Bakery began with a mission to bake up the most delicious dog food treats for dogs everywhere. Baking for over a decade, we have perfected all-natural, fresh-baked treats that look just as good as they taste -- dog tested, puppy approved. Our world famous bakeries have ovens working around the clock to ensure pups everywhere get fresh, premium, and great tasting baked goods. Located in the Los Angeles Farmers Market, Venice, and Old Town Pasadena, we are visited by people from around the world, celebrities, and most importantly, our four legged friends.
Infographics are an obvious content solution. They’re an attractive way to provide information to your target audience, while seamlessly fusing your creative heavyweights: copy and design. While infographics may seem like a hip new invention, infographics have existed for hundreds of years, compartmentalizing data for readers in useful, visual ways.
While we could spout a bunch of statistics about the value of infographics for your content marketing strategy, we can bet (without looking), there are quite a few infographics already doing just that. Meta, right?
So instead of inundating you with the facts, we’re here to share a case study of an effective infographic strategy we discovered during our daily content research: Wine Folly’s The Many Different Types of Wine.
This infographic was so shareable, it landed a spot on content-behemoth, BuzzFeed. Talk about a PR goldmine for Wine Folly. So why do we think this infographic is so fruit-forward?
Critical Cycles may be based in Los Angeles, but our riders transcend coasts. Because we love our customers near and far, we reached out to our Brooklyn brethren to ask about the can’t-miss bike shops in our favorite East Coast city: NYC.
As New Yorkers are born loyalists (to their boroughs, their pizza, and their baseball teams…), we received a rush of die-hard answers and compiled this list.
Accustomed to potholes, gnarly weather, and everyday street theft, you can trust NYC bike shops to know their stuff. Let’s be real. New Yorkers have little patience for anything less.

“Your body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.” - Buddha
Growing up, my parents had a natural remedy for just about everything: chamomile to get to sleep, mint for your stomach, warm lemon and honey for a sore throat, hydrogen peroxide to keep your teeth white, and cactus extract in place of lotion.
Now, in adulthood, I deeply appreciate my parents’ value of natural foods. Ever since I adopted an organic-conscious, processed foods-free diet, I have felt more nourished, both physically and mentally. Below, I will chronicle how, and why, eating whole foods can heal you, inside and out.

By virtue of reading this article, I know you’re an eco-friendly, sustainably-conscious, protector of the earth and your health. But I also know you’re a computer user. Though we’d all love to blog through a flower, share organic recipes via the wind, and chat about homesteading by bird call, sometimes computers are, in fact, necessary for communicating and sharing our messages of sustainable living.
We all know computers have their fair share of problems. Yes, computers emit harmful radiation. Sure, Americans spend about 8 hours in front of the computer each day. Oh, and did I mention? Approximately 40 million tons of electronic waste, including computers, are improperly recycled each year, filling our already overflowing landfills with toxic electronic junk.
So how do we reverse our participation in all this? Step one: place a radiation absorbing plant (like a potted cactus) beside your computer to absorb some of its harmful emissions. Step two: try to minimize computer time to office hours; spend weekends taking in the good ol’ fresh air (weather is never an excuse in Los Angeles). As for Step Three: recycle your old computer by turning it into a plant feeder!
