What To Expect

Your ebike tour of Pacific Grove begins when you meet your guide at Big Sur Adventures, the 17 Mile Dive Shop near Asilomar State Beach. Get acquainted with your riding buddy, strap on a provided helmet, slide on your cycling gloves, and strap a free bottle of water to your ebike.

Ride along the beach, watching sunseekers soak up the rays and taking photos of the dazzling Pacific waves. Get your legs warmed up to travel down more than half of 17-Mile Drive’s oceanfront pathways.

Dozens of sites pass by as you ride, including China Rock, Fan Shell Beach, Crocker Grove, and the Ghost Tree lookout point. Finally, end your trip with a stop at Pebble Beach Market before riding back to the meeting point along Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard.

Zane, our tour guide, was the best! So knowledgeable about marine biology and the history of the area. We learned a lot while we were on our tour. The e-bikes were good bikes and easy to maneuver. Beautiful ride along the Monterey coastline! I would highly recommend this tour, and hope to do it again with friends and family!

Ben was fantastic, and a great communicator. Views across Pebble Beach were stunning—including the wildlife (we even saw a few dolphins randomly) and the pace was comfortable. A must for anyone visiting Monterey!

Jessica_B, Apr 2024
E-bikes were super fun and the sights were really pretty- made for a nice ride and good way to see the highlights of 17 mile drive. Our tour guide was very genuine and made the expirence enjoyable. Definitely plan to rent e-bikes again on future visits and explore more independently! Pro tip: bring your own binoculars to really enjoy the stops and enjoy wild life!
Best experience - take this tour!

I live local in Pebble Beach and see the electric bike tours all the time so was curious. The experience was amazing from start to end: friendly greeting, easy parking, focus on safety and fun. The scenery and tour was really unique. Our tour guy Ben was *the* best: a true passion for the area of Pebble Beach, funny, great stories and genuine care for our experience.
Great Monterey experience!

Great day - great experience, don't miss it!
lisamestes, Mar 2024
Our guide was great! The trip was beautiful, the bikes are very easy to use for first timers. Plenty of stops along the way and we had the opportunity to grab a coffee along the way. Much better by bike vs. car - a must do!
Beautiful and fun experience I'd do again!
Maria_B, Mar 2024
Only a few minutes into the journey, I was brainstorming friends and family that I could take back on the ride with me! Nothing better than taking in fresh air, zooming through the beautiful coastal backdrop and stopping sporadically to take in the view. This was exactly the light, fun and breezy experience I needed. E-bikes were so much fun and easy to master!
Spectacular views and...

Spectacular views and informative history. Katie was an excellent tour guide and we will be renting bikes again.
Outstanding guide, and outstanding E bike experience.
Brian_G, Feb 2024
Our experience was memorable because we had an outstanding guide. He was knowledgeable on the marine life and land life, and we felt safe, and the trip was exciting and memorable. Our guide was professional yet friendly and approachable and we just had a great experience because of him and the interaction we had and of course the bay was beautiful.
