What To Expect
Begin your bike adventure in Santa Monica with either a morning or afternoon departure time. Meet your guide and climb aboard your bike to begin your ride. Your ride for the day is a Pedego beach cruiser, a typical Southern California ride that's been modified with an electric motor. Choose to pedal as you would a normal bike, or flip the switch to turn on the electric motor and just enjoy a relaxing ride. Your bike includes six gears as well as high-end disc brakes, lithium ion battery and 500-watt motor that ensure you'll have no problem keeping up.
Start out your ride by traversing Santa Monica's iconic beach, heading towards the Marion Davies Guesthouse, past the Santa Monica Pier and then on to Venice, where you'll cycle around its famous canals. Enjoy the beautiful sun and cool beach weather as your guide shares fascinating details about the neighborhoods' architecture and history along the way. Finish your cycling trip back at your original departure point.
