What You Can Expect

Santa Barbara Electric Bike Tour

Santa Barbara Electric Bike Tour

At the selected departure time for your Santa Barbara bike tour, make your way to the local bike shop and prepare for your 2.5-hour 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.

The best way to discover the sights of Santa Barbara - great for a family! Our guide Connor was excellent and was able to tailor the tour to our liking. We even got to stop for street tacos at a local restaurant . Would highly recommend.

Our tour guide was excellent. He took us for a ride all around Santa Barbara and extended the ride for us too.

I loved every moment of this bike tour. Riding the electric assist bike is lots of fun and an excuse to be outdoors with some exercise. Conner, tour guide, is terrific. He is informative about Santa Barbara and took us to out of the way areas not accessible by tourists. He showed us sites that we requested and was open to any changes needed. The bikes are in great shape and are very safe. This is a trip for people who have bike experience although you can be a beginner. At any rate, Conner will make sure you can handle it if you speak up. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area who wants to have a general overview of Santa Barbara as it will greatly enhance you vacation experience. Bring plenty of sunscreen on sunny days.

Our family of 5 in age ranges of 16 - 55 LOVED this experience. The tour was engaging for our teens. The bikes are easy to maneuver no matter your age. Highly recommend and we would all love to do it again. Also a good idea for out of town guests.

The bike trip was really wonderful. Brian was a great guide. We loved it so much we ended up buying electric bikes. The only problem was the address was wrong on the invoice, but Viator dealt well with that.
