Check the location, its not the same as the web search for the name would suggest. Pleasant for out of towners but very light on the actual "tour". I came away only slightly better informed about what I was seeing, so this is for people who enjoy...continued

Great event! Super nice, family run business by true locals. Get to see LA up close and personal. The bikes were FANTASTIC -- very comfy beach cruiser, with an electric motor that is super easy to turn on/ off (simply turn the handle). Plus the...continued

I highly recommend Pedal or Not, a family-run business that provides guided small-group electric bike tours along the beach from Santa Monica to Venice & back.

From the moment you arrive at their kiosk on 7th St. until you begrudgingly turn...continued

The bike tour included a few historical sites in Santa Monica and continued toward the SM bike path. Barb, our guide, was just awesome! She was very knowledgable and took care of us the entire time. The path became pretty congested in some...continued

A great way to see Santa Monica and Venice Beach and get some exercise at the same time. The electric bike option was a nice option to have specially when it gets too hot to pedal. Our tour guide Barb was very good--provided thorough safety...continued

Enjoyed ride. Bicycles very comfortable and easy to maneuver. Did not receive photos via e mail as promised by tour guide. Very cool by the time you get back so long pants and sweat shirt is advised. Good overall value. Will take out of towners on...continued

Great fun, and a terrific way to tour Santa Monica, Venice, the canals, and the bike path, with little or no energy expended! Fun to be able to use the electric feature of the bikes or not to and just pedal. Barbara was a terrific guide and...continued

It was a lot of fun, we used the motorized part the entire time, some pedaling, my friends were lazy and the guide was on a mission. We could not have picked a better day to go through SM, Venice and Marina del Rey. Bikes were easy to use, not...continued

Loved this tour along the Santa Monica and Venice boardwalks and Venice Canals. It offered the option of making it a physically challenging/calorie burning jaunt or to power up with a simple twist of the wrist. (I did both and had lots of power...continued

Barb and Steve were so gracious when my friend got caught in traffic and couldn't make it for our 4:00 tour. We rescheduled for the following week and had a blast. I've never ridden an electric bike and they have a lot of zip without being...continued

The electric bikes were really fun. I took my 14 year old son and he enjoyed the tour as well. When our legs got tired or we just wanted to pick up speed it was super easy to just give the bike some power. Our guide was friendly and informative...continued

My husband and I had a great time. From the check-in to the good-bye after the tour, it was a great pleasure. After having some challenges in the beginning and having to get used to being on a bike again (it had been 20 years for me) we cruised...continued

We took the tour on Sunday, and although we are locals, we learned a lot about Santa Monica and Venice. The bikes are amazingly fun, hopefully next time I visit "Pedal or Not" it will be to buy one!! It was a great afternoon, the folks who run...continued

A very enjoyable trip. Loved the idea you could pedal or use the electric. Although I have not been on a bike in 5 years our tour guide Barbara was very patient with me. Saw areas of Santa Monica and Venice Beach I did not know existed.
