What You Can Expect

Electric Bicycle Tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach

Electric Bicycle Tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach

"WOW!" will likely be your first word when you turn on your electric bike during this bicycle tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach. With the flick of a switch, you can turn your colorful Pedego beach cruiser into a more relaxing mode of transportation. It’s an alternative biking experience that allows you to see the best of Los Angeles, where you’ll want to be outside, enjoying the sunshine and warm temperatures, not touring in a car or bus.

From the comfortable seat of your bike, you’ll ride along Santa Monica's world-famous beach to the Marion Davies Guesthouse, past the Santa Monica Pier and through Venice to its picturesque canals. While you soak up the sun, sand, surf and ocean breezes, you'll be accompanied by a story-telling guide full of interesting information about the local art, architecture and history of the area.

The bike allows you to choose traditional pedaling with six gears or using the electric motor power (with the flick of your wrist), which puts the power completely in your control. Or use a combination of both. All bikes are equipped with state-of-the-art disc brakes, lithium ion batteries and a 500-watt motor to ensure that you’ll keep up with the group.

This tour is so much fun, you don't need to be fit to do this, you can pedal if you want, but its more fun if you don't. If its hot, make sure you take sun lotion, the breeze from going fast can mask how hot it actually is. I would definitely recommend this, I would love to do it again!

This a great addition to a trip to Santa Monica. Steven, our guide, has a historical knowledge of SM and Venice which added to the fun and exploration of the area. The bikes are easy to ride and one can always use the electric option. Overall, a very fun event with a pro!

This was an amazing and really fun way to see Santa Monica and Venice Beach. The tour guide was great and the electric bikes are easy and a BLAST to ride! Don't hesitate to give it a try, I will definitely do this again if I return to the LA area. I loved it so much I am actually looking to buy my own Pedego bike. I also plan to seek out tours like this in other cities I vacation in. Fun, fun, fun!

We spent 4 days in LA with our granddaughter and the bike ride on the beach was by far the most fun. A great tour guide, fresh air, and invigorating exercise--who could ask for anything more. This is something we will definitely put on our list to do again.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This is a great tour to take if you want to see multiple landmarks without giving up precious hours or days. Our tour guide, Barb, was very knowledgeable on the area and was very friendly. She was willing to take time to explain all the different locales and was also willing to take personal pictures for you. The bikes were easy to use and amateur-friendly as well. The workers gave us a lesson before we were let loose on the tour. This is an easy tour since the ride is mainly on cement and you don't have to pedal if you don't want to. There are a few busy streets that you have to cross and you do have to share the road with other cyclists and peds at times but just follow the rules of the road and you're fine. The tour group tends to be small ours was 2 which is convenient if you don't want to get lost in a crowd. I would recommend the morning tour since the areas kept getting busier as the day went on. Take a jacket with you because the ocean breeze can be chilly. Also the bike had convenient saddle bags to store your personal items. The tour length was estimated to be 2-3 hours, but I'd recommend allotting around 3.5 hours in case.

The tour was awesome. The bikes were great allowing my daughter to cruise and my son to pedal. The route was amazing seeing the scenic Santa monica and the chaos that is Venice beach. We loved every second of it!!
