Electric Bike Rentals


Taking out an electric bike rental in Santa Barbara is one of the top ways to explore our incredibly bike-friendly city.  Most of the electric bikes we carry are pedal-assist as they’re the most requested but we do have two throttle e-bikes as well. We have the largest electric bike rental fleet in Santa Barbara with four different ebike brands.

We carry the following electric bike rentals: Specialized Turbo Comos & Vados, Electra Townie Gos, Rad Power EBikes, Aventon EBikes, & Specialized Turbo Levos and Trek Rail 5 electric mountain bikes as well. The Specialized Como and TownieGo are both pedal-assist ebikes that are great for all day riding around the city while the Rad Power and Aventon ebikes sport a throttle but shorter battery life. The Specialized Turbo Levo and Trek Rail E-bikes are great for ripping up fire roads and coming down intermediate trails in the area.

Bikes come with: Locks, Helmets, map, and baskets if available

No sand riding allowed. If you wish to ride on the sand please visit Cal Coast Adventures to book the beach electric bike tour!

The Townie Go electric bike is our most popular rental due to the comfort and range of this bike.  It’s one of the most comfortable and easiest to ride ebikes on the market. We carry the Townie Go 5i, Townie Go 7D Rear Drive, and Townie Go Path. For the smoothest and easiest electric bike to ride along the beach we reccommend the Townie Go 5i. If you plan on transporting your ebike around Santa Barbara we recommend the lightest of our ebikes which is the Townie Go 7D Rear Drive. For long-term rentals or long distance rides the Townie Go Path is our favorite.
