On a recent business trip to Pacific Beach San Diego, we found that we had a day to kill by the beach and were looking for something fun to do, something we hadn’t done before.
We talked to a local while enjoying lunch at the PB Shore Club, and he recommended we rent some electric bikes.
We had never tried riding en e bike before, so it was definitely intriguing. Since we were not from the area, we conducted a quick Google search to see what our options were.
Mr. Google suggested a company called Boardwalk Electric Rides, so we made our way over there to see what they had to offer.
We were very impressed by the setup and selection of bikes. It was a slower day, so we ended up chatting with the owner for a little while. He told us about a pal of his that had a Lake Geneva E-Bike rental store, and was doing real well with it, so he had decided to add them into his store as well.
He kindly set us up with a Fat Tire Cruiser (like the one in the pic to the right). We decided to splurge, and do the full day rental. It was the best deal per hour, and we did not want to have to hustle back to return the bike right away.
Let me just go out and say it right now… These bikes are awesome! They are very easy to ride. They make it less work to ride, but it still is exercise, so it is perfect if you are looking for a fun and relaxing way to cruise the beach. Numerous people commented on the bikes, and asked about them. We gladly pointed them to the rental shop, and were on our way.
Overall, we could not have been happier with the experience. We are grateful for the young man that made the suggestion to us, and we thought this would be the best way to pay it forward!
We all know there is an abundance of fun waiting for you in Pacific Beach San Diego. If you can’t find something fun to do there, you might be the problem…
One thing to add to your list is an electric bike ride down the boardwalk. It is a great way to cover ground, see the sites, hit the establishments you want to hit, and best of all you can get from point A to point B in no time at all!
Thanks for stopping by to check out this post. Next time you are in SD be sure to hit up the local e bike rental boutique and get out there to see the city in style!
