Full description
Soak up the beautiful coast of Northern California on this 3.5-hour guided e-bike tour. Visit Lover’s Point with a gorgeous view of the ocean and try to catch a glimpse of sea otters as you ride through the Pacific Grove Marine Gardens Conservation Area. Pay homage to the memory of John Denver as you pass his memorial, continue your trek up the coast, and have a chance to see the Point Pinos Lighthouse, which has shone since 1855. Pedal past the sandy shores of Asilomar State Beach, making stops at viewpoints to take in ocean vistas and the fresh sea breeze. Marvel at The Links at Spanish Bay, a stunning golf course with fairways overlooking the ocean, and snap a photo of China Rock and Bird Rock. Last but not least, take a minute to imagine yourself in one of the luxurious mansions along the path.

The crew is young and motivated. The guide told many interesting personal and regional stories. The Monterey region is highly recommended for a bike tour. The bikes are in perfect condition and have an excellent electric drive. Gender and size are queried in advance, so the bikes are readily available.

Jonathan was an excellent tour guide. The electric bikes enabled me to ride where I would not have been able to on a regular bike. Jonathan was helpful in suggesting how much battery assist to use as well. Learned a lot of things about the local area.
