I rented a Premium Road Bike (Trek Domane) for a day in August 2022. My friend, who is a local in SB and a cycling enthusiast, recommended this place for renting my road bike.

Wanted to climb to one of the mountains. I booked in advance, on line, but two bikes of my size (56cm) were still available. The location is a bit off from the center of the downtown Santa Barbara (State Street), but 1 mile off and about 20 min walk from, let's say, the Wharf. So not too bad. I took an uber from the downtown and cost less than $10 per trip.

The bike is relatively new. There was a minor issue with the disk brake, but the mechanic person fixed it quickly. I find the mechanic guys good; they know what they are doing. It's important for me since i had to climb up and go down 4000 feet. As I said, the bike is a good one, well maintained. They also adjusted the height of the saddle and the handle bar perfectly (I typed my height when i rented on line). I asked for Look pedals. They let me try two but both were worn out, and they did not click well. But I find that this is a common issue for many bike rentals all over the world so please don't take it as a negative (would be a huge positive if they would provide good pedals). They also gave me two bottles of water, and a Garmin cycling computer mount for free (Garmin computer costs extra of course). I went 40 miles, 5000 feet up and down all over the city and mountain, for 5 hours, without any issue. I wish they put a lighter wheels for climbing but I didn't ask, so maybe it was my issue. They also don't want accident or damage so it makes sense not to put a light carbon wheels to the rental bike.

The staff there were all friendly and efficient. The price ($105 for Premium Road BIke, and $75 for regular road bike) is reasonable. Overall I am very happy with my experiences. I would come back and rent from them again next time i come to SB.

Hi Makoto! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review about your road bike rental experience with us! Happy to hear that our mechanics were able to give you thorough service in getting your fit dialed before heading out on an epic climb! Our mechanics are pretty awesome and it makes us happy to here that you noticed the friendliness and efficiency of our rental staff. We do not have any carbon wheelset options, but the wheels on our road bikes are durable, lightweight aluminum that match the high-end level of quality of the carbon frames they come stocked on. We are so glad you got the chance to enjoy one of our favorite local riding routes and we hope to see you again in the future!

I've rented Road Bikes here for over a decade and they are consistently well priced and in tip-top mechanical condition. I rent bikes when I travel but no place, worldwide, matches the quality and service of SB Bikes to Go. Book confidently.

We loved every bit of our experience with CalCoast. We rented electric bikes for us while in Santa Barbara for the month of April, plus we did several weekly e-bike rentals for friends who came and stayed with us. The bikes were all great and their service was so prompt and friendly. We will definitely be using them to rent from when we return.
We also did the 1.5 hour West Beach Kayak Tour with Blaze and ... as our guides and loved it.I highly recommend them for any tour they do.

Outstanding service! Very knowledgeable and professional staff. Extremely welcoming and will-do attitude. I rented a Soecialized Roubaix Road bike which came very high spec (Ultegra) for a rental bike. You must do the Gibralter Road climb; stunning!

I rented a full-suspension Ibis mountain bike for a day and had a blast exploring the city and trails of Santa Barbara. The team were incredibly friendly and helpful, and I would absolutely rent another bike from them in the future. I highly recommend Cal Coast Adventures to any Santa Barbara visitors looking for great mountain bike rentals.

Rented a fabulous FS Stumpjumper Carbon Comp Specialized MTB Bike from Cal Coastal. Entire experience was seamless. Rented online & paid up front. Prices were advantageous to multi-day rentals. Upon pickup, the guys ensured the bike was fit to me, including shocks. They offered a few tips re: local trail access & I was off. Return was super smooth. Took all of 2min.

I wish the world were more like Cal Coast Adventures. It shouldn't be the case, but the simple act of retail kindness, unhurriedness, patience, caring instruction and good will left us all so happy. Why it's so rare I don't know, but on our way back I asked why everyone was so nice at CCA. They didn't really have an answer, but shrugged. I think it's who they hire, how they manage and that they like what they do, but I won't know for sure. All I know is that when I tried an e-bike for the first time, CCA was patient and explained all the features and types repeatedly. They had plenty of stock on a holiday Saturday. There was no sense that I was taking their time unnecessarily. They seemed to want my family and me to have a great ride as much as we did. The location is just blocks from the Santa Barbara trail. The equipment worked great. Ebikes are a pure joy, so overall it was a great experience.

I’ve rented road bikes from Cal Coast several times over the last 5 or so years and they consistently deliver me a solid bike in great working condition. My latest rental was a Specialized Roubaix with DI2. I put about 150 miles on it including an assent of Gibraltar Rd and a descent of San Marcos Rd. The bike was perfect through all of it. I’m looking forward to my next vacation and bike rental to do it all again.

We had a great time riding the Rad Power electric bikes on the great bike paths North and South of the pier. The bikes were easy to adjust for our different heights (4'9", 4'11", 5'11") and were fast enough to be exiting but not too fast. We are looking forward to buying some of our own. Thanks to the nice folks at the shop for working with us when it rained on our originally scheduled day.

Bikes were in great shape and a ton of fun to ride. We took the Specialized ones and went up State Street, up past the Mission and way up the hills into the neighborhoods, then back down, over towards the Community College and then down the beach. All in less than 2 hours and with a chunk of the battery left. Bikes are a ton of fun to ride and a great way to see a lot of the city in a short time.
