Return Details

Returns to original departure point
At the selected departure time for your Santa Barbara bike tour, make your way to the local bike shop and prepare for your electric bike excursion. Here, your guide outfits you with a helmet and provides a brief safety orientation about the easy-to-use electric beach cruiser — a comfortable bicycle with wide tires and upright seating.

Your guide leads your small group on an historical route around Santa Barbara that includes the Santa Barbara Mission and the brick-lined sidewalks and landscaped plazas of downtown’s State Street before heading out to the Pacific Ocean. 

You can cruise at speeds of up to 20 mph (32 kph) with the option of pedaling, using the electric motor or a mixture of both for a fun and easy ride. 

Focus your camera lens on renowned views of the Santa Barbara coastline and stop at a few historical sites to brush up on local history before pedaling (or coasting) back to the original departure point.

Wow! What a fun way to see so many cool parts of Santa Barbara! Sergio was a great tour guide. Super friendly and not at all judgmental of my lack of bicycle skills! Seriously, though, he was the perfect guide and knowledgeable of the area. I highly recommend this fun tour. Oh, the rest of the employees were very friendly and accommodating as well. We would definitely come back to Cal Coast Adventures again!

We got to see the giraffes at the zoo and Butterfly beach. I couldn’t believe how far we traveled in such a short period of time! The elevation changes we encountered were easily managed with the electric assistance of the bikes. The Santa Barbara Mission was beautiful! Great experience!

We did a private tour with our family of 7 (ages 16 to 57). The bikes were all new, great condition, clean, and the electric bikes make the tour very easy and enjoyable. Our guide Brody was terrific and knowledgeable. We were able to see all the sights and got a great tour of a number of things we will want to see and do the next time we visit

We had soooo much fun on our electric bike tour! I can’t think of a better way to see Santa Barbara and enjoy the outdoors! Our tour guide was Jimmy! He was super fun and full of interesting information about the city and it’s history! You really have to try this! We rode like 16 or 17 miles and the bikes were amazing! We are in our 40’s and had a 64 year old with us. We all did the ride with no trouble!

PERFECT way to see beautiful Santa Barbara! Best way to get an overview of the city and places you want to go explore more. Don't think I've ever been on a bike tour when looking to my left were giraffes (SB Zoo) and to the right the gorgeous Pacific ocean, WOW !!! Enjoyed seeing the Montecito area, holy Beanie Baby! Eat lunch before or after the tour at East Beach Tacos, 2 minute walking distance from where you start/end the bike tour....YUMMY! Our tour guide Brody rocked! Highly recommend this e-bike tour.

Hi Michele! You all truly saw it all! The giraffes are defintiely a highlight for me every time i see them. We almost always recommend East Beach Tacos! They are a big favorite here at the shop. So glad that you all enjoyed your tour with Brody so much and we can't wait to see you next time! Take care.

The bikes were great. Jimmy our tour guide was very good. He had the knowledge to answer our questions and show us Santa Barbara. He gave us recommendations for restaurants and other activities. Santa Barbara is a beautiful city. We managed the city on our own and the views from the beachfront amazing.
