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.

BEST way to explore Santa Barbara!!!
Lynfa_M, Sep 2022
This was our first time in Santa Barbara and the electric bike tour was the BEST way to explore the City! Blaze was a great tour guide, attentive, personable & super informative! He tailored the tour to our interests and was gracious and patient with our picture requests, as he volunteered to be our photographer. My husband and I both agree that this tour is our fave Santa Barbara experience so far and cannot recommend it enough for this looking to tour the City!

Jody_L, Aug 2022
We had an awesome tour with just our family and Mike the guide! The bikes were great and it was a perfect way to start our introduction to downtown Santa Barbara. Highly recommend this easy ride. We weren’t looking for an exercise challenge and that’s not what this was. It was just great to learn about the history and see the area So that we could explore more on our own later

Good experience riding...
Renee_O, Aug 2022
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.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thanks for taking the time to write us a review Renee! We appreciate the feedback regarding communication from our guides- we try to offer as much information as we can when we stop at scenic points and landmarks since it is difficult for everyone in the group to hear while riding single file. We will communicate this feedback to our guides and thank you again for booking this tour with us!

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!
