Electric bike is the best way to get around Santa Monica/ Venice Beach!
Our tour guide was really friendly and showed us a lot of public art works and the view of the bike ride is just amazing! The tour to the canals is nice too, it is the cutest neighborhood I've ever seen!

My boyfriend is rather the stay-at-home-and-watch-TV kind of guy, but he totally loved this bike ride!

Excellent and fun all round. Easy to find, great equipment, properly fitted and attention to safety. Their funky cruiser style bikes have electric motors, so you pedal as little as you like, or even none at all. Great for all ages and fitness levels.

Informative tour takes you through parts of Santa Monica, then down to the beach and bike paths, zipping along through to Vence Beach with stops at important spots for local info and color, including walking through the remaining Venice Canals. Great way to see the sites, enjoy the beach and local life, and get some exercise at the same time. Great for families. Highly recommend.

Thanks for a great tour Stephen!

While visiting Santa Monica recently, my husband and I, who enjoy cycling--and who really needed some exercise after all great meals we'd had--decided to give Pedal or Not a try based on all the great reviews. What a fun idea! We booked online for a tour the next day and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! As soon as we arrived, Stephen fitted us for our bikes and after a quick lesson, Barb led the two of us on a fun and informative tour through Santa Monica and along the beach to the Santa Monica Pier and then south to Venice Beach and the canals. Barb was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the history of the area, which we always enjoy, and also added some fun info about filming locales and celebrities. We both started out pedaling but it wasn't long before we used the extra power from the electric battery to get through intersections and over the canals in Venice. Barb couldn't have been nicer and kindly took pictures for us on our cell phones. We will definitely do this on our next visit! This isn't just for tourists! One of our daughter's friends had never seen the Venice canals even though he's from the area and thought this would be a great way to see them after hearing about our experience. We couldn't agree more!

If you are in the Santa Monica area, you must check out this tour. Barb, our tour guide, was great! She took us all over Santa Monica and Venice Beach. We had plenty opportunity for photo-ops. She also took photos for us, and emailed them to us! A major plus. The bikes are awesome. If you want to work out, this is for you. If you want to relax, and just enjoy the ride without the workout, you can do that too. I liked the fact that the groups were small, and the the tour was intimate. A great experience that I would highly recommend to others. Happy Traveling!

Barb was the perfect guide. It was a great way for us to see Santa Monica and Venice Beach. I hadn't been on a bike in years and I was worried. The electric bike let me keep up with my 19 year old daughter- sometimes I pedaled and sometimes I didn't. We both had a great time. The electric bike let me enjoy the scenery, the sometimes exercise and the interesting local information. Barb, thanks for the memories.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We looked at bike tours so that we could see a little of the area, This one was great, as the electric bikes meant that you could literally, pedal or not. They were easy to master and you could pick up quite a speed. and Barbara took us around town and onto the beach in Santa Monica and down to Venice. We rode along the beach cycle path and stopped by the funfair and Marion Davies' guest house. Barbara was very knowledgeable about the history of the area, we saw the beachfront homes, including that of Donald Sutherland. And it was great to hear about the development and decline of the Venice canals. Very safety conscious, helmets required and a little warm up ride on the sidewalk before setting off. Some road use, but Barbara ensured we were all quite safe, would definitely recommend.

As a local I was in the market for a fun and off beat beach adventure for a visiting gal pal. This was perfect. We showed up. They gave us bikes and helmets and interesting info about the history of Venice Beach. I would totally recommend this trip. It's a fun way to get out of the car and onto the bike paths.

My friend and I were booked for a tour in August and we loved every minute of the tour. Barbara took us around Santa Monica and Venice on a sunny Saturday afternoon. She is full of great information and history on the area. The bike ride is definitely low impact and when you need a bit of a break the electric bike option is so easy to use. Wish I had that on my own bike. I would definitely chose to go on one of these tours again - it was so easy cycling around the streets and the beaches.

Had an awesome time, the bikes are so comfy and easy to ride. The added benefit of not having to pedal really helps when you spend too much time gawking at the sights and need to catch up with the group! Santa Monica is easy and safe to ride around, the traffic seem to respect bike riders and the whole vibe is relaxed and fun. I'd say it's for all ages really, as long as you can ride a bike and have a degree of fitness...
