Experience a new form of two-wheeled transportation as you cycle the mellow streets and beautiful beaches of Santa Monica and Venice with a guide on this tour by electric bicycle. It's the perfect opportunity to experience the gorgeous weather and ocean breezes of Southern California aboard an electric bicycle that you can pedal yourself (or let the motor do all the work instead).

Begin your bike adventure in Santa Monica with either a morning or afternoon departure time. Meet your guide and climb aboard your bike to begin your ride. Your ride for the day is a Pedego beach cruiser, a typical Southern California ride that's been modified with an electric motor. Choose to pedal as you would a normal bike, or flip the switch to turn on the electric motor and just enjoy a relaxing ride. Your bike includes six gears as well as high-end disc brakes, lithium ion battery and 500-watt motor that ensure you'll have no problem keeping up.

Start out your ride by traversing Santa Monica's iconic beach, heading towards the Marion Davies Guesthouse, past the Santa Monica Pier and then on to Venice, where you'll cycle around its famous canals. Enjoy the beautiful sun and cool beach weather as your guide shares fascinating details about the neighborhoods' architecture and history along the way. Finish your cycling trip back at your original departure point.

Barb was a great tour guide. We had perfect weather for riding our bikes. The electric bikes were a plus for me. I would pedal on my own sometimes and when I got tired.....used the benefit of the electric bike. It was so relaxing to bike along the beaches. Barb also took some great photos of our group and emailed them to me. Thank you for a fun tour!

We had a day in Santa Monica and chose this tour to get acquainted with with area as first-time visitors. It didn't disappoint. The electric bikes were really fun to ride and meant were able to cover a lot of ground along the beach. Our tour guide provided really interesting details and stories during our brief stops which greatly added to the experience. Definitely recommend this tour.

Hi Donna, Mothers and daughters traveling together always makes me happy. I love traveling with my girl. The electric bikes are a great way to cover a lot of territory and get the “lay of the land”. My hobby is collecting stories and trivia to share with my riders. Glad you enjoyed them. Thank you for your kind review. Hope you loved your stay in my town. Happy bike trails, Barb
