The owners of E-Bikes Santa Barbara believe that their city's lush parks, breezy boardwalks, and scenic streets are best seen by bike—and that it's even better if said bike is powered. A fleet of rental, late-1990s-model Lee Iacocca e-bikes speed along with throttle-activated 36-volt lithium-battery-powered electric motors, or let riders propel themselves by pedal. Bikes are equipped with padded seats and storage bags, and can travel up to 27 miles on a single charge. Meanwhile, a selection of bikes to accommodate all riders are available for rent, providing yet another way to explore the town.
