3 hour electric bike rental

You will pick up the electric bikes at our store and receive brief training and directions on where you can go on this self guided ride.  Then you will enjoy riding an electric bike along the coastline in Carlsbad for 3 hours.  Check out the surfers and the waves crashing on the beach.  The bike lane parallels the beach for approximately 6 miles and then continues through the quaint little towns.  There are plenty of places to stop along with way and sit on the beach, shop or get a bite to eat.

The village has a mix of old and new. Lots of great restaurant choices and fun shopping. We were more comfortable during the day than in the evening. They have a nice walkway overlooking the beach. The sign over the street makes you feel like your back in the 1950's.

Great place to browse small shops and get a bit to eat! People were friendly and helpful! I enjoyed talking to Store clerks and found she was from Alabama originally! I will definitely go back when in the area.

To get away from the Inland Empire heat wave (108 degrees), we ventured to the coast for a day of relaxation and adventure. Landed up in Carlsbad Village (located just north of San Diego, California. Carlsbad Village is the downtown commercial area of Carlsbad, California located along the Pacific coast. This entire area is tourist orientated. The area is accessible and parking is free throughout the Village. Streets are lined with a wide range of shops (antique, clothing stores, Art, jewelry, toy, florist, and just about anything you can imagine). One could spend days visiting all these different stores. Eateries abound in the area. One can enjoy a fast food meal at "McDonald's" or a upscale meal at "West Steak and Seafood Restaurant" (4980 Avenida Encinas). The possibilities are endless. We enjoyed our lunch at "Wicked Maine Lobster" (3040 Carlsbad Boulevard). Excellent selection of seafood entries. Staff is extremely friendly and professional. As one wanders around the area, you will notice numerous colorful and old wooden buildings along the streets. The "Carlsbad Inn", "Alt Karlsbad Hanse House", "Twin Inn" and "The Daily News Restaurant" are just examples of many outstanding old buildings to view and explore. Many hotels and vacation rental properties are found throughout the village. If your adventures, bike rental are available from numerous shops. Benches are located along the streets and in the parks. Took a break and sat on a bench and observed the parade of old classic cars that when by. A reminder of a trip to Havana, Cuba and it multitude of old vehicles. A truly remarkable experience viewing the old classic cars of a bygone era. Carlsbad Village has something for everyone. Our trip was exciting and very enjoyable. Most definitely will be returning to Carlsbad Village in the near future. Note: Due to Corona Virus regulations, mask and social distancing is mandatory throughout the Village.
