Pedego electric bike rentals are available at Pedego Santa Barbara with plenty of interesting places to ride in this town known as the American Riviera. The beach bike path takes riders for miles with unparalleled ocean views. And just about every street has a bike lane in this bike-friendly town. Riders may cruise all the way up to the Santa Ynez Mountains with stops at a California Mission, parks, gardens, the city’s zoo and other fun destinations. The Interceptor, Stretch Cargo bike and electric Tandem are three Pedego models that will thrill riders who roll out for a day’s adventure under the sun. Riders on rental bikes must be at least 16 years old. Trailers and baby seats are also available. Locks and helmets are provided as part of the rental.
Pedego Santa Barbara offers sales of all Pedego Electric Bikes models. These include Pedego’s Comfort Cruiser, powered by a 36-volt battery for gentle help with hills, as well as the more robust Pedego Interceptor boasting its 48-volt battery that propels riders with extra power. Both are California beach cruiser styles that fit right in with Santa Barbara’s cool beach vibe. The Pedego Interceptor in Sandstone color enjoys a red-tile Mediterranean style that goes beautifully with Santa Barbara’s famous Spanish Colonial architecture. Other models range from the fat-tire Trail Tracker for sand riding to the Ridge Rider electric mountain bike to the sleek City Commuter and the sturdy Stretch Cargo Bike. All Pedego bikes have a 500-watt hub motor that helps riders cruise great distances without getting overtired. Pedego Santa Barbara also offers top-notch service for Pedego electric bikes. Everything from maintenance to customizations can be handled by the team.
Briody and Levine are excited to be in talks with potential partners around town to offer local tours. “We’re going to be offering some really awesome tours to exciting destinations,” said Briody. “There is so much to see and do in Santa Barbara, and we’re helping our customers ride everywhere in high style.” For more information on guided and self-guided tours, please call the store.
“Santa Barbara is such a beautiful and quaint town,” said Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “Pedego’s stylish bikes fit right in with Santa Barbara’s beach vibe and help riders power up hills and breeze through headwinds, taking advantage of the region’s many bike paths.”
