Trading in the Wagon for an E-Bike

Meet us at the entrance to Andrew Molera State Park, where we’ll introduce you to the e-bikes, give you a safety briefing, and begin our trek. We’ll climb the mountainous terrain with the help of our 750 watt motor, taking a moment to stop for amazing views of the Point Sur Lighthouse.

The road then dips into the backcountry, taking us through the trees. We’ll cross Little Sur River on a small wooden bridge before starting a steep climb back up a mountain behind Bixby Canyon. You may be thankful for the bike’s motor at this point!

The last leg of the tour involves a long descent through the redwoods with one more steep climb ahead of us to Bixby Bridge as our final stop. Here you can take photos to celebrate the journey before we shuttle everyone back to their cars. The full ride is 10 miles and lasts approximately 3 hours.

The Perks of Going Electric

See more of the gorgeous California coast in a shorter amount of time.

Less physical effort means that you can spend your time enjoying the views, not catching your breath.

Adjust the bike’s electric assistance to fit your preferences. It’s suitable both for people who want a good workout and for those that don’t want to expend much energy.
