The ride was great. Our guide Barb gave us enough info throughout the ride to keep it interesting, but just checking out the general scene along the route makes it worthwhile. I bike all the time, but the e-bikes made it so even the least fit in our group had no problems enjoying the ride. I would highly recommend.

Fun way to explore the Santa Monica/Venice Beach ocean front. Bikes are nice, well maintained and everything is low key and simple. Definitely recommend traveling with this company. Our guide was a delight and A great navigator through busy Venice Beach. The 3 hours flew by.
