“A great way to see Santa Monica, Venice Beach and the canals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

I have a bad back so I didn't know how I could handle a three hour bike ride but it was as easy as a twist of the hand!! I did little pedaling and a lot of riding. It was very relaxing and entertaining! The owners are so nice and accomodating. We had stayed in Santa Monica before but we actually had a chance to learn some history with this bike trip!

“This tour wowed our two teenagers. Need I say more?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2011

There is no better way to get a sense of Santa Monica and Venice than on a bike, and these electric bikes make the experience possible for virtually anyone. My wife had not ridden a bike for 15 years, yet loved this 3 hour experience. My 15 and 16 year olds thought it was the coolest thing ever. The folks who run Pedal or Not are as friendly and accomodating as can be. A must do when you are in LA!

“Great ride on a great beach in the California sunshine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2011

Great Ride from Santa Monica to Venice Beach and back. It had been a while since I had been on bike, other than in a gym, but I was ready to ride in a couple of trips down the sidewalk. Getting the feel of the electric bike was easy, and riding was even easier. The bike was quiet, no putt-putt-putt.

At fIrst, I thought that I would would pedal a lot a get some exercise, but I found myself lulled into letting the bike do the work. This is not a bike rental. This is a tour with a guide, so I actually learned about Santa Monica and the area.

Great presentation/tour, ran by some nice folks who had thought of everything! I spent almost three hours and had a calm, relaxing ride.

Bring your Camera, Suntan Lotion, and a snack to throw in the basket. (There's a grocery store around the corner if you forget.)

If you skip doing this, you are really missing out!
