Full description
Begin your adventure at the Monterey Coastal Recreational Trail, near the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Enjoy a great place to practice with the bike's throttle and to experience a low-level of pedal-assist. You'll soon forget the controls and begin to marvel at the breathtaking ocean vistas. See harbor seals on the beach near the Hopkin's Marine Station, where the sweeping vistas start. After a few minutes, arrive at Lover's Point Park (featured filming location for "Big Little Lies."). There, hop on the wide and scenic Ocean View Boulevard, and share the road with slow-moving cars for a short while. Make sure to stop at Kissing Rock, Pacific Grove's beautiful little sea arch. Take your own pace as you ride this scenic stretch of coastline. Pass the John Denver Memorial, Point Pinos Lighthouse, Asilomar Beach, and the Pacific Grove Links Golf Course. After Asilomar beach, experience the full power of the electric motor. Go full throttle as the road pulls inland and climbs a long hill to the entrance of Pebble Beach. Turn right on 17 Mile Drive, and take the bike path back down to the ocean. Scan the golf courses and yards for deer — you're sure to see a few along the ride. In Pebble Beach, ride past even more stunning vistas: Spanish Bay, Point Joe, Restless Sea, and China Rock. Make sure to stop at Bird Rock (public restrooms here) to watch the sea lions splash and sunbathe. Hop back on your e-bike and continue along the ocean to the Lone Cypress. To spot some sea otters, stop at Fanshell Beach Overlook and Cypress Point Lookout. Here the true mansions start. Follow the road that winds through 300-year-old Cypress Trees and some of the most expensive homes in Pebble Beach. Suddenly, break out into a clearing and see the Lone Cypress perched on its stony outcropping. Your next stop should be the Ghost Trees at Pescadero Point where a short walk brings you to a beautifully sculpted coastline. For a little "nurture," continue on just a little further to Pebble Beach Lodge for food, restrooms, amd shopping. From here, you can either ride back the same route, take a shortcut, or continue on to Carmel to explore its coastline and cottages.

What to bring

  • Comfortable shoes

Know before you go

  • Riding in light rain is optional. You can still go out, or you can cancel for a full refund.
  • In the event of heavy rain (when more than 1 centimeter is forecast in 4 hours), the local partner will automatically reschedule or offer you the chance to cancel for a full refund.
  • 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.
