Led by experienced electric bike tour guides, the tours take visitors along Santa Barbara’s spectacular coastal, urban, and rural routes as well as beautiful Upper and Lower Montecito. This guided tour will cruise riders over rural rolling hills to visit sites along the Santa Barbara coast to  Goleta Beach.  On the return, riders will explore the FunkZone, Shoreline Park, the Public Market, and other downtown attractions.

Electric bikes empower virtually any rider to experience the joys of cycling along scenic bike paths, enjoying scenery that would be impossible to see by car and difficult to see by foot. Riders can choose to pedal or not, breezing through headwinds and conquering hills with ease.

The Pedego vacation includes a welcome reception, breakfasts, lunches and a dinner at one of Santa Barbara’s most celebrated restaurants plus three nights’ hotel accommodations at Santa Barbara’s exclusive Kimpton Canary Hotel. The Pedego Santa Barbara Vacation is available at $1,450 per person for double occupancy and $1,750 for single occupancy. It includes rentals of Pedego electric bikes, guided tours and helmets.
