Ride the Coast – An Epic California Coast Adventure 

Ride the Coast invites tourists and Bay Area locals alike on a biking adventure down the majestic California coastline, from San Francisco to Half Moon Bay. Not a spandex wearing cyclist? No problem–our electric bikes allow you to throttle the hills and make this adventure accessible to everyone who wants to have fun and feel the breeze. We keep the energy rocking to keep you engaged: riders collaborate to queue up a playlist the night before to bring the good vibes as we ride together.

Glide through the Presidio from our shop in North Beach through the enchanting coastal sweeps of lands end around past Ocean Beach before kicking up the pace to Pacifica. There are some absolutely legendary mountain top vistas and lighthouses to make your photobook something to envy.

As you approach devil’s slide, we give riders the option to take a shuttle over to the other side. If not, you’re in for one of the most legendary descents in the United States. Thereafter, we ride turn up the volume and cruise past some magazine worthy Highway One coastal sweeps before arriving in Half Moon Bay.

We toast our arrival at one of our local favorites, the Jettywave Distillery, but give riders the option for lunch to suit their pallet. For one day rides, we relax in Half Moon Bay, home of the Mavericks big wave surfing, for a few hours and enjoy the waves before we shuttle you back home.

Featuring E-Bikes by Rad Power Bikes

The ride is a breeze on our Rad Power electric bikes and locals can opt to bring their own bikes to feel the vibes and make new friends. Whether you throttle or peddle, these award-winning electric bikes make cruising and off-road terrain a breeze. From their sleek design to their uncomplicated use, our electric bikes make for the best way to ride the coast.
