Highlights
  • Wheel around on a beach cruiser for a classic Southern California experience
  • Learn about the history and beach culture of Los Angeles
  • Get exercise and enjoy the fresh air of Santa Monica and Venice 
  • If you get tired, turn on the motor for an easier ride
What to Expect
Make your way to the meeting point in Santa Monica and get outfitted with your electric bike and helmet. Your guide shows you how to operate the e-bike so that you can pedal on your own or switch on the electric power for motor assistance. You’ll ride a Pedego beach cruiser, a classic Southern California bike that’s been modified with an electric motor. Your bike has six gears, high-end disc brakes, lithium ion battery, and a 500-watt motor. Follow your guide along bike paths, quiet streets, and the waterfront of Santa Monica and Venice Beach. Start by traversing Santa Monica's iconic beach, wheeling past the Santa Monica Pier and on to Venice. Pedal around the Venice Canals and soak up the scenery as your guide shares commentary about the architecture and history of the neighborhoods and beaches you see.

My favorite part of the tour was pretty much actually riding the bike and seeing so much and hearing the stories & history about things around there. Barb was the best and if I come back to LA, I will definitely be doing it again!

Hi Precious, so happy to share this tour with you and your honey. I love riding the bikes too and obviously I love telling stories. It’s a pretty common to hear people say they want to own one of these electric bikes after riding for only a few minutes. Venice and Santa Monica are vibrant, fun cities and its great to be able to showcase the interesting pop culture and trivia of the area. Thanks for this kind and thoughtful review. I would love to see you again. Barb

Hi Jackie, I am so glad that you decided to have a new experience with us. Most people who find us have not ridden an electric bike but as long as you are a comfortable bike rider, we love to share our Pedego electric bikes and our beach cities. The short warm up is generally enough to get comfortable with the power option. Cheers to new experiences. Thank you so much for this review. Barb
