Excellent family tour! We weren't sure what to expect when we first got on our bikes. We were given a brief explanation and test run before we began our tour. So helpful. Once on the rode, the bikes were so easy to maneuver. At times when I felt I was lagging behind, all I did was give a quick turn... More

We had a fantastic day with Barb from Pedal or Not. Santa Monica was a really beautiful place and Barb made it so interesting. We loved the tour, it was a great way to see the area and take in a bit of history as well. We would never have known there were canals in Venice if it wasn't for... More

Our family ( kids are 12 and 15) did the bike tour a few days ago. I can HIGHLY recommend the trip. Stephen was very careful to make sure we all knew how to operate the bikes before we set off and gave us all a bottle of water. The tour was really interesting and so easy due to the... More

I took my niece for a tour of Santa Monica and we found Pedal or not online while looking for things to do. My niece was a little hesitant riding a bike, but they made sure she was fit to ride and comfortable. Molly took us out for a tour past the Pier then down to Venice and the canals... More

This was the highlight of our trip in Santa Monica. Stephen acquaints you to the bikes seamlessly and the tour guide Barb really is the jewel in the crown of their operation. Funny, friendly and informative she really makes the trip something to remember and whether its taking photos or telling you the history of one of the many sights... More

I give this bike tour 2 thumbs up!! It was a fun way to spend the day. Our tour guide was very sweet and fun!! I enjoy the scenery and the history of Santa Monica. I highly recommended cruising along beach on these electric bikes. My daughter had a great time and would take this tour again!!

Molly was a fantastic tour guide for our bike tour. Very courteous and knowledgeable...and we ended up getting a private tour because they are so serious about not overbooking. I couldn't get enough of the electric bikes. ;)

I had a chance to take this tour on my last trip to LA. Although I went to school in the city, I never had a chance to take a tour while living there. This was a refreshing way to see and learn about Santa Monica and surrounding areas. I will have to say that Venice was my favorite stop.... More

A really nice way to start a visit to Santa Monica and see the main "sights" along the bike path. Of course you can hire bikes along the bike path & ride on your own if you want, but it's really nice to get some local history and knowledge and this tour includes the Venice canals which I'm sure we...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
