San Diego Fly Rides' garrulous guides discourse on scenic and historic sights aboard a flotilla of electric bicycles. During the Spanish Twist Tour, bikers ages 16 and older will cruise through the 1,200 acres of Balboa Park as their shepherd elucidates the rich heritage of the majestic Cabrillo Bridge and the verdant Alcazar Garden. The two-hour, 9.5-mile ride pauses frequently for riders to snap photos and admire the blossoms that dapple the landscape. Each bike is simple to control and flows seamlessly between pedal-powered and motorized action, allowing riders to choose how much effort to exert as they cruise at 20 miles per hour. The aluminum steeds come equipped with a basket for personal items, a helmet, a water bottle, and a diesel-powered horn to wake up sleepy squirrels lounging across the paths.

San Diego Fly Rides

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.
