My favorite part of the tour was pretty much actually riding the bike and seeing so much and hearing the stories & history about things around there. Barb was the best and if I come back to LA, I will definitely be doing it again!

Hi Precious, so happy to share this tour with you and your honey. I love riding the bikes too and obviously I love telling stories. It’s a pretty common to hear people say they want to own one of these electric bikes after riding for only a few minutes. Venice and Santa Monica are vibrant, fun cities and its great to be able to showcase the interesting pop culture and trivia of the area. Thanks for this kind and thoughtful review. I would love to see you again. Barb

Due to covid, we had to change our original plans to celebrate our anniversary. We decided to stay close to home and after seeing the positive reviews for Pedal or Not, we booked a tour. Although we both are born/raised in LA, doing this tour was so much. We learned about things about our city we never knew and even explored some areas that we've only ever quickly driven by (e.g. the Venice canals). It's also the perfect activity to do during a time like covid. Biking is socially distanced already by nature and wearing masks while riding was not an issue for us. The fact that the bikes were electric (you can switch between manual and electric at anytime) made the experience that much more fun. We want to do it again with our kids and plan to book again. Thanks to our tour guide Barb for a memorable, fun experience!

Hi G & S, I was honored to be a part of your anniversary celebration. Thank you for this lovely and thoughtful review. I wish I had you in the marketing department. There is no marketing department or budget for 2020 due to Covid. You hit many of the points I would like to share with future riders. I so glad you decided to be “tourists in your own town”. It can be a blast. Being the beach cities for Hollywood, & L.A., these areas of Santa Monica & Venice are full of pop culture and fun stories that we love to share, and beautiful places like the canals you mentioned. We are proud to be part of the slow and careful reopening and are focused on your safety and ours. So glad you loved the bikes they are a big hit for riders. Looking forward to seeing you again sometime. We truly appreciate your review. Barb W

Hi A & B, Thanks for finding us. We are thrilled to be out on the trail again sharing our awesome cities with you. Thanks for being a part of our reopening efforts. Bicycling is receiving a lot of positive press as a way to get outside and still follow social distancing protocols and that’s exactly what we do. I appreciate your review and kind words. Hello, new normal. Let’s roll.
