Leave your traffic and parking worries behind! Our city bike tour covers some key sites of Santa Barbara in 2 hours. You will get to see far more than you would by foot and at a pace that is perfect for taking it all in.

About the Bike Options

Our Electra Townie 7-Speed Cruiser is comfortable and casual. With 7 gears you will have no problem at all with the occasional small hill. These bikes have baskets for small items that you may want to bring along.

Our 21-speed hybrids are light and fast. The more narrow tires and lightweight frame give this bike a sportier feel for those who prefer to take the tour at a brisk pace. These bikes are stocked with disc brakes for superior braking power.

For those who prefer the wider, knobbier feel of a mountain bike tire, we offer the option of a hardtail mountain bike. The front shock will smooth out any bumps in the road that you may encounter and the disc brakes have excellent braking performance.
