Armed with a fleet of Currie Technologies e-bikes, San Diego Fly Rides introduces explorers to beautiful views of the coast and city accessible by easily navigated trails. After a quick introduction to the bikes, a story-telling guide leads groups of cyclists, rolling at about 20 miles per hour to stay ahead of heckling joggers. The visitors hear the secrets of storied surroundings in La Jolla, Little Italy, San Diego Bay, the historic Gaslamp Quarter, and other famed locales. For a more free-form tour experience, guests can opt for rentals of IZIP Zuma bikes, which come with all the materials necessary so renters can guide themselves, including a map, helmet, water, snack, basket, and bike lock. The shop also sells electric bikes, which generate propelling power but also allow riders to pedal to their heart's content or doctor's orders.
