"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. Riders MUST be comfortable riding a bike!

This bike tour was the highlight of our trip! The power was easy to use as needed and Barb took us straight to the main points of interest with lots of great insights along the way. Don’t miss this tour!
We truly enjoyed our electric bike tour along the beaches of SoCal. The tour began in Santa Monica headed north past the pier and then we turned and rose south to Venice Beach. The related movie trivia and fun facts in addition to the beautiful weather AND view made this tour a Must do/see activity!
We had a great time Barb was fantastic and very informative. Highly recommend! Totally loved Santa Monica and Venice Beaches! A great way to see all the locals and the electric bike was easy to use.
Barb was fantastic and everything about the experience was great.
A great tour! Our tour guide Molly was funny and engaging. The bikes were incredibly easy to use and lots of fun. A great way to spend an afternoon!
This was a great fun thing to do with our teenage children. Barbs was an excellent leader and had lots of interesting snippets to share with us.
No less than fantastic! Barbara, our guide, has a high knowledge of the area, and all of the stories that you could expect on a trip like this.
We truly enjoyed the trip!
Absolutely loved it!! This is the way to experience Santa Monica and Venice Beach just like the locals! Loved that the bike was electric!! This was an awesome experience to feel the wind, smell the ocean, and feel the heat of the sun...there are no words to describe!!! An absolute must do!!!
The Electric Bicycle Tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach is outstanding! The length of 3 hours is just right...one of our favorite tours!
We had so much fun! One of the best things we did in LA. The tour guide was lovely and gave us little snippets regularly at points during the tour! Highly recommed!
Our guide, Barbara, was great. Very patient with us, especially my 14 year old, in learning to use electrical part of bikes. It was a very nice ride through the beaches, with stops at pier, skate park, Venice Canals. My teenagers ages, 14-18, loved it.
Fantastic tour. Barb was amazing and extremely knowledgeable. Not to mention accommodating. Our daughter was not comfortable riding on the road, and changes were made to the original route. What an experience to see Santa Monica and Venice, from the perspective of a local guide.
A super way to experience Santa Monica and Venice Beach. Would do this again.
Very friendly staff, bikes worked as expected and it was a lovely afternoon.
This tour was the highlight of our trip to Venice! Barb, our tour guide, was friendly and knowledgable. It was great to bike and get some exercise, while having the option to use the motor when needed especially near canals. We all want electric bikes now!
This is my second time on the tour and won't be my last. It's a great way to see Venice and Santa Monica quickly when I have guests in town and with plenty of time to stop and look around to see what you want to do next. Molly is a great guide and have enjoyed doing both tours with her. I love family owned businesses and try to support them whenever we can.
