Exploring Life & Business with Devin Raymond of EZE Ryders Electric Bikes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Devin Raymond.

Devin, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I have been in the e-bike distribution business for just over five years now. It first started out as a side business for me while I was working in the international logistics industry, but then turned into my full-time job after moving to San Diego at the end of 2019 – right before the pandemic hit. We opened the retail shop called EZE Ryders in Point Loma (4051 Voltaire St 92107) in January of 2021. Now we just finished our first year in business and are excited to feel like we are becoming part of the community. We are one of the few shops that specialize in repairs for all kinds of bikes – electric or standard. We also do e-bike and electric scooter rentals. We carry a bunch of different brands in the shop, and we also manufacture and distribute our own brand of electric beach cruisers called Coastal Cruisers.

Below is a great article written about us when we first opened.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
There are always struggles – we have been lucky to have found good staff that all really love what we do. Supply chain issues have definitely affected us in the past year, like most businesses, however we did a good job of anticipating that and planning around it to expect significant delays. Still, opening a new business is never easy and there have been lots of growing pains, but our community has been very supportive!

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about EZE Ryders Electric Bikes?
We specialize in e-bike repair and rental, and sales of electric bikes, one wheels, electric skateboards and many more accessories. We are unique because we manufacture our own brand of Coastal Cruiser electric beach cruisers that we distribute throughout the country. We are both a local retail shop and national distributor that helps build other electric bike businesses by providing them wholesale parts and accessories as well as business support like website design and logistics assistance.

We all have a different way of looking at and defining success. How do you define success?
Success for us has multiple different levels. From a macro level, success means all parts of our business are running smoothly – wholesale, retail, rentals, and repairs as well as growing our e-commerce business. We are looking to open a second location in San Diego to grow our footprint and do more for our customers. On the micro-level, success means we have happy customers and happy employees at our shop. At the end of the day, we are really a service business and as long as we are able to help our community get out and be active and have fun, we are being successful!
