Barb took us out for a 9am ride and we were lucky to have her to ourselves for an intimate tour. It was the perfect way to take in the early morning sights of the beach and early riders/skaters. The beach came alive by brunch time and we got a great feel for being amongst the locals and Barb had... More

I have been here once before but saw this on TA and decided to give it a try. Enjoyed Barb and the entire experience. I had done the segways in other cities. This tour was a little longer and seemed to cover more ground and was a little cheaper so I decided on this one. Bikes were comfortable and spent... More

Barb was very knowledgeable on the history in the area and gave us enough stops to get a feel for the place and people watch. I am truly the worst bike rider but picked this electric bike up very quickly and really enjoyed the rude. We recommend this to everyone. Kat, Kris & Belle

Blow those jetlag cobwebs away and take in all the amazing views of Santa Monica and Venice beach. Admire the rich mix of people and activities with great commentary from the lovely Barb - beaut orientation tour to get a sense of where you are

This was my first time riding an electric bike. It was really fun to ride the beach bike path and actually have a motorized thrust of power just when I needed it to pass. Bonus... the scenery and the exercise I got from pedaling. Super fun tour. Highly recommend Barb and Pedal or Not.

We loved the bikes, easy to operate, and the tour route was beautiful. The tour guide was pleasant and informative, definitely a highlight of our trip. I would have rated the experience as excellent, only one small negative...the gentleman who taught us how to operate the bikes didn't seem to like his job, not very patient although pleasant.

We had a lovely time on our electric bike ride. The bikes were very easy to manage and we felt safe being guided along. Barb was the host and was lovely and passionate about what she did. We rode along Santa Monica pier and were pointed our movie star homes which was fun and stories with them. Barb is very... More

We had a fantastic time on the bike tour. Barb was awesome and knew her stuff. We were in LA for two weeks and this was a highlight of our family holiday. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area!

All the other excellent reviews of Pedal or Not Electric Bike Tours are true. You'll start up above Santa Monica beach and make your way down to the beach area where you'll do most of your riding. Our guide was knowledgeable and has been doing the tour a long time. You can also just rent a couple of electric bikes... More
