What to Expect
Make your way to the meeting point in Santa Monica and get outfitted with your electric bike and helmet. Your guide shows you how to operate the e-bike so that you can pedal on your own or switch on the electric power for motor assistance. You’ll ride a Pedego beach cruiser, a classic Southern California bike that’s been modified with an electric motor. Your bike has six gears, high-end disc brakes, lithium ion battery, and a 500-watt motor. Follow your guide along bike paths, quiet streets, and the waterfront of Santa Monica and Venice Beach. Start by traversing Santa Monica's iconic beach, wheeling past the Santa Monica Pier and on to Venice. Pedal around the Venice Canals and soak up the scenery as your guide shares commentary about the architecture and history of the neighborhoods and beaches you see.

Hi Jackie, I am so glad that you decided to have a new experience with us. Most people who find us have not ridden an electric bike but as long as you are a comfortable bike rider, we love to share our Pedego electric bikes and our beach cities. The short warm up is generally enough to get comfortable with the power option. Cheers to new experiences. Thank you so much for this review. Barb
