What To Expect

At the selected departure time for your Santa Barbara bike tour, make your way to the local bike shop and prepare for your electric bike excursion. Here, your guide outfits you with a helmet and provides a brief safety orientation about the easy-to-use electric beach cruiser — a comfortable bicycle with wide tires and upright seating.

Your guide leads your small group on an historical route around Santa Barbara that includes the Santa Barbara Mission and the brick-lined sidewalks and landscaped plazas of downtown’s State Street before heading out to the Pacific Ocean. 

You can cruise at speeds of up to 20 mph (32 kph) with the option of pedaling, using the electric motor or a mixture of both for a fun and easy ride. 

Focus your camera lens on renowned views of the Santa Barbara coastline and stop at a few historical sites to brush up on local history before pedaling (or coasting) back to the original departure point.

Good experience riding across Santa Barbara with a guide and having stops along the way. There could be improvements with communicating with riders as they all may not be able to ride near guide or hear the guide talk about the areas.
Private Electric Bike Tours with Mike in Santa Barbara!!
JanelPrasad, Aug 2022
Our host Mike was very knowledgeable, well-informed about Santa Barbara today, and historical events that have helped shape the city into and its surroundings into what it is today. We loved the fact that he was accommodating, flexible, and all 3 of us felt welcomed and comfortable riding around the waterfront and through the city to get a local's perspective and the rich history of Santa Barbara. Thanks again Mike!

Fast and easy way to view the city
Debbie_K, Jun 2022
This was a really good overview of the city. The bikes were the latest technology, more on the motorbike side than road bike. Kai was a super friendly guide and took us to all the hot spots with many recommendations. Our only suggestion would have been to stop to do the talking part or use an app so we could hear him. He was leading us and speaking forward, so many of his comments were lost Into the wind.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Thank you for the feedback. We will pass it off to our guides for future rides. Happy to hear you still had a good time on your ebike tour!
Never too old for a bike ride!!
