- For a short section, the bikes ride along Ocean View Boulevard is shared with cars; ramp up the pedal-assist as needed. It's a wide scenic road, with cars and bikes typically going about the same pace. Make sure you're comfortable riding at least 15 mph/24 kph. The bikes are governed to 20 mph/32 kph, but typically you're unlikely to reach full speed on this particular stretch due to slow-moving cars. Soon, the road narrows and you will get a full bike lane.
- After Bird Rock, the bike lane again withers away through this scenic, curvy section. But by this point, most riders are comfortable riding the e-bikes 15—20 mph/24–32 kph with traffic.
