Fantastic experience on super comfortable and easy bikes. With the option of peddling or using the quiet electric motor, you can cover a lot of distance with very little effort. It lets you focus on the sights! Our tour guide couldn't have been nicer or more informative.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone-avid biker or not! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. She answered questions and stopped when we wanted to take a few pictures. Having the electric motor was great for assisting when I didn't want to pedal.

We wanted some great memories from our 30th wedding anniversary trip to Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles, and this bike tour ticked every box for us. From the ease of booking the tour prior to the holiday, to the instructions on how to find the shop, and the pre-tour teach-in from the friendly and likeable Barbara, everything was... More

I came to LA as a solo traveller for my birthday and on the last day decided to head to the beach as the night before I signed up for a tour with Pedal or Not. The best news was it was a private tour and I had such a blast with Barb. We cycled up Santa Monica and Venice... More

Really enjoyed our bike tour with pedal or not. The bikes are really easy to get the hang of and the electric motor makes the ride really enjoyable once your legs are tired from pedalling.

My husband and I booked the tour with Barb and Stephen and felt like we got first hand knowledge about Santa Monica and Venice Beach and so much more! Was so informative and loved seeing everything via bikes. Such a fun experience, bikes were very easy to learn and use and super easy to do. Thank you.

Barb did a fantastic job taking us around on the bikes, I really enjoyed it. Loved that she had a book to show us houses before and now and the history of the area.

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

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.
