Seeing the world by bike beats seeing the world by bus, as bus tours are often ruined by engine exhaust, construction detours, and guides who deliver facts by honking them in Morse code. Enjoy the calm of a two-wheeled trek with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $57 for a guided electric-bike tour of the San Diego Bay or a full-day electric-bike rental for two (up to a $130 value)
- $110 for a guided electric-bike tour of the San Diego Bay or a full-day electric-bike rental for four (up to a $260 value)
At least two patrons converge with a guide at the tour office, located in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. They complete a quick introduction and test ride before embarking upon a two-hour tour that begins at the San Diego Padres' Petco Park. Outfitted with electric bikes, helmets, and water, they journey to the bay via paths that snake toward the Embarcadero and Harbor Island, among other famous locations. Independent spirits can rent out electric bikes with maps, locks, helmets, and water and explore nearby sights on their own or with imaginary tour guides all day.
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.
