“Not to be missed in Bend”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I did Let It Ride's tour in July on my first trip to Bend and I can't think of a better way to take in the city's beautiful sites and history. Let It Ride's owner, Kevin, was our guide. Kevin is really knowledgeable about Bend's early days and takes you back in time with the vintage photos and stories he shares at the different stops on the tour. Riding the electric bikes is super fun too. Love being able to motor up the hills!

“Storm Riders in Bend”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We had a "blast" riding through Bend on our Electric Bike tour!!! Winds were at least 60 mph!! Easy when you are on a no petal bike. So much fun. I wanted to keep going to Sunriver. So nice that our dog was able to be pulled along in the kid trailer. Kevin was a wealth of information about the town of Bend. What a nice surprise to find this tour. I highly recommend it.

“See Bend the Way It Should Be Seen.....From a Bicycle!!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Whether you think you know Bend like the back of your hand, been there 100s of times, or you are visiting Bend, Oregon for the first time.........you simply MUST make Let it Ride Electric Bike Tours part of your adventure! My husband and I just spent a beautiful Fall afternoon with Kevin Rea, the owner, on his wonderful electric bikes! Kevin makes learning history fun with his witty anecdotes and amazing catalogue of 8 by 10 black and white photos that show what Bend looked like as far back as 1910.......he brings history alive!! The 2 to 2 1/2 hour route is gorgeous and no matter how athletic you are (or aren't), anyone of any age can comfortably manage the terrain with the amazing electric bicycles. It is truly the best way to see and experience the beauty, charm and uniqueness of Bend, Oregon. Kevin makes your experience memorable by capturing pictures of you at the most scenic spots on the route, then e-mails you the photos....no additional charge! Well worth your time and a great value!!!

“Good Time Had By All!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

WOW! Here we were, all five of us on a cold & blustery Sunday afternoon. Ages ranging from 24 to 73 gonna go on a 2 hour, 8 mile historic bicycle tour of Bend where I spent the happy days of my youth when Bend was only 6,000 folks. Kevin the boss man and our tour leader was wonderful and quickly filled us in on what we could expect and allayed the fears of my 66 yr. old wife who hadn't ridden a bike in over 35 years. No rush or pressure and after 5 minutes of practice in the parking lot she was riding her electric bike like a pro. These bikes was a new experience for us and we found them to be truly remarkable and easy to ride. Though it was a cold day Kevin provided several hot chocolate breaks along the route. Great tour and we all recommend it as fun and educational even to those who have lived in Bend most of their lives. Saw some beautiful country and would & will do it again.

“'Let it Ride Bend' Rocks!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We had a great time with Kevin and his electric bikes! The bikes are way cool and you can peddle whenever you want or go electric all the way.

We learned so much about Bend (and we even live here.) Who knew there were houses here built out of railroad cars? We loved riding through the parks and along the river and just enjoying the beautiful day and the fun of electric bikes. There was a fellow vacationing in Bend who took the ride with us just to get oriented to the layout of town, figure out what’s to do and where some good biking trails were. Kevin was a perfect guide that as he grew up in Bend and knows all the to do and to ride places.

Can't wait to go back for another ride. AND next time the family's in town, we will rent my sister an electric bike so she her really bad knees can finally join the family on a bike ride. So excited!
