Full description
Try something new on your trip to Los Angeles and ride an electric bicycle around the neighborhoods of Santa Monica and Venice. Hop on a colorful Pedego electric bicycle for a relaxing ride in the sunshine, where you can enjoy the mild warm temperatures of Los Angeles. This 3-hour active and fun bicycle ride lets you choose whether to pedal or not, and takes you to places in the city often unreachable by car or bus. From the cushy seat of your cool comfortable Pedego beach cruiser you will ride along Santa Monica’s award-winning beach to the Marion Davies Guesthouse, Under the Santa Monica Pier, and through Venice to the Venice Canals. You will be accompanied by a storytelling guide with interesting facts about the local art, architecture, and history of the area while you soak in the sun, surf, sand, and ocean breezes. The bicycle allows you to choose your own comfort level between pedaling with 6 gears, using the electric motor power which puts the power completely in your control, or both. All bikes are equipped with state of the art disc brakes. The lithium power assist will ensure that you are never far behind. This 3-hour tour operates daily and is designed for bicycle riders aged 14 years and up who appreciate the joy of riding a bicycle with a surprisingly fun added option.

    The 4 of us had a great time with Barb.In the beginning there was a small learning curve for one of the bicyclist, however with some practise our friend gained confidence to ride an electric bike. It was an informative trip thanks to Barbs information about the area. Highly recommend one does this tour to experience the different areas.

    We had a fantastic morning on the electric bike tour with barbs, we where only in Santa Monica for one day and the tour really showed us everything we wanted to see of Santa Monica. Barbs was really informative. Would highly recommend this activity to anyone visiting Santa Monica ! Suitable for all ages !

    Perfect for a variety of activity levels

    This was a great way to see the ocean front and learn some history about Santa Monica and Venice. I recently had knee surgery so exploring had been difficult and this was the perfect solution! Because of the electric bike, myself and a friend could enjoy this activity without me pedaling, and her getting a work out. Barbara was a lovely host who truly seems to enjoy what she's doing- also kudos for the lunch recommendation- Library was perfect! A great day!
