Are your experiences safe?

Yes! All our guides are trained in proper road safety. Prior to embarking on your bikes, we provide a safety briefing and ensure you understand how to use your e-bike. In addition, the guide carries a cell phone to keep in touch with our HQ throughout the ride and we have an EMT on staff.

Where do I meet for the tour?
For both the tours and rentals, meet us at the shop.
243 N. Highway 101, Suite 5, Solana Beach, CA 92075
What is your cancellation policy?
Change of plans. Don’t worry: if you cancel at least 24 hours in advance, we will happily offer you a full refund. Please note that for groups of 6, cancellations must be at least a week in advance.
Which e-bike is best for me?

The Traditional, with its front suspension and big wheels, is our smoothest ride.

The Step-Thru is best for those who like a more upright riding position, as it offers swept-back handlebars.

The Cargo Step Thru features a cargo area or child seat with rails and foot steps.

How much cycling is on the tour?

The 15 mile loop is just that. You can bike as much or little as you want. With throttle assist, you can determine how much pedaling you want. We make plenty of stops for photographs and a chance to rest.

Are there any age restrictions on the electric bikes?

Our minimum age for solo riders on the electric bike tours is 16.

All riders under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian and be accompanied by an adult

Do I need to sign a waiver?

Yes. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign for them.
It is also on our website to review here.

What happens if in the case of bad weather?

We check the weather forecast the night before each tour to make sure that it will be safe to ride.  If heavy rain is predicted, we will cancel the tour and offer you a full refund. If light rain is predicted, we will offer you the option to continue the tour or to cancel for a full refund.

In addition, we make exceptions for rentals in bad weather. We want you dry, happy and safe.  

Are there bathrooms along the tours?

Yes, there are a few along the way.

Do I need to know how to ride a bike?

While riding an e-bike is easier than a standard bike, we still require that you know how to ride a bike before joining us on a tour.

Do I have to pedal? Will the e-bike run out of battery without my help?

If you don’t want to pedal at all, and you’d like to ride more than 20 miles, consider renting an extra battery for $10. While our bikes can take a 150 lb rider to La Jolla and back (25 miles round trip) with battery to spare, it’s not uncommon for people who don’t pedal at all to enjoy the ride so much that they go further than planned. If so, you can either pedal back or call us for an in-ride battery swap. We bill these swaps at $50 per hour drive time plus $10 for the battery, so we recommend planning appropriately.

There are a lot of variables (i.e. bike, the rider, the terrain, etc.), so be sure to call us for advice! We’re happy to make your ride as easy (or as difficult) as you’d like.

Are there any weight restrictions?

The maximum weight for the Happy Camper and Happy Fatty is 275 lb.

What level of difficulty is on tour? What level of fitness do I need to have?

The “15 Mile Loop” is suitable for beginners, featuring all relative flat paved roads.

How much cycling is on the tour?

The 15 mile loop is just that. You can bike as much or little as you want. With throttle assist, you can determine how much pedaling you want. We make plenty of stops for photographs and a chance to rest.

Are food and drinks included?

Only water for the tour will be provided. Feel free to bring whatever you wish to drink and a small snack.  We do pass by quite a few local markets, food establishments and convenience stores.

What happens if I have an issue with the bike while I’m out riding?

Bike problems are rare, but if you do encounter an issue with your bike while on a tour, we will send someone to swap out the problem bike for a replacement. If you want a ride back, whether while renting your own bike or on a tour, we can provide that at no charge as well. Please note that we will never bill you for the time you spend waiting for a backup bike, nor do we charge to replace a flat tire.

Do you offer refunds?

If you cancel at least 24 hours in advance, we will happily offer you a full refund. Please note that for groups of six or more, cancellations must be at least a week in advance.

We also offer a satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t enjoy your tour, let us know and we’ll make it right with a refund. However, it doesn’t happen often – typically the only complaints are that people don’t want the tour to end!
