Pedaling is optional aboard Pedal or Not's electric bicycles. Riders can always give their legs a break and let their bike's battery do the work during the company's guided bike tours.

For one red velvet-filled night per year, the bars of Santa Monica are filled with holly-jolly revelers, all drinking and eating for a good cause. The SANTA Monica Pub Crawl sends participants on one of four fun-filled treks through some of the city's finest watering holes and restaurants, most of which offer drink and food specials. Clad in their holiday finery, crawlers can participate in their Instagram photo contest, or tote along a digital camera for the scavenger hunt. At the end of the evening, wristbands grant participants entry to the official after-party. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefit the Westside Food Bank, which works to combat hunger and food waste in the west side of Los Angeles County.
