What to expect
  • 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.

My family and I took a bike tour through Santa Barbara with Ally. She was a phenomenal tour guide who made our tour engaging and fun for everyone! Ally was extremely knowledgeable about Santa Barbara and its history, and we were able to see a lot of Santa Barbara in only a few hours. We would highly recommend a tour with Cal Coast Adventures and Ally!

We were on a 10-day drive of PCH from SF to SD and only had 2 hours in Santa Barbara so decided to do the 2-3 hour electric private bike tour to make the most of our time in this beautiful city, and it was a great choice!! Mike was our tour guide and provided a really informative and picturesque ride along the waterfront and into some of the outlying city. We made several stops along the way so he could share information and the electric bikes made it a breeze for the ride - especially the hills!! We highly recommend this activity when in the area for all ages!!

Our tour was customized for the things we wanted to do and see. Cai did a great job meeting our very specific requests while showing us a wide variety of neighborhoods within the city and the important sites. He also took us to some great scenic spots we weren’t aware of. Highly recommend this tour if you have a number of areas/sites you’re hoping to see. Cai will make it happen.

We covered so much territory, got some exercise, but when a hill came up we turned on the pedal assist and sped right up with no effort at all. Brody was our very charming and knowledgeable guide. The route was just perfect taking us past the zoo to Butterfly Beach, through Montecito, back along East and West beaches and up the hill to City College for some stunning views, then out to the Mission via State Street, and the back to the shop via the Funk Zone. It wasn’t much more expensive than renting e-bikes on our own and so much fun to have a local’s perspective on Santa Barbara and to get oriented on places we were able to revisit later in our visit.

Absolutely the best way to see Santa Barbara especially if you're short on time. We were lucky enough on our private tour to have Yehudah. He was extremely knowledgable, very personable, brought us to his favorite spots in SB and gave us many insider tips on what to see during our stay. He was also very flexible and accomadating during our E-bike tour (first time using them and easy to use).

Small group tour, extremely well organized. The electric bikes were nice and peppy, the route was lovely, and there was a nice combination of riding and stopping to see things. The tour guide was very helpful and knowledgable.
