About
Explore the city sights and rugged hills around Santa Barbara with an electric, mountain or hybrid bike 1- or 2-day rental. Get around town easily on an eco-friendly electric bike that doesn't require pedaling. For a more adventurous experience, explore the city streets or Santa Ynez Mountains on your mountain bike. Or get a hybrid bike that combines the speed of a road bike with the stability of a city bike. Choose from a wide variety of models appropriate for beginners and experts alike. Biking around town provides a great workout and allows you to cover lots of ground fast — there's no better way to see Santa Barbara!

Vacation Roadie Rental
Oct. 2021
In town for a long weekend, and wanted to get a road ride in. Reserved a nice Specialized carbon fiber bike through the easy to use web reservation system, and showed up at my appointed time on Friday morning. The staff had my bike ready to go, installed my pedals I brought with me, and after a quick adjustment to the seat height I was off on my morning ride. The bike was setup perfectly, and everything from brakes to gears were operating nice and smooth. Great ride, excellent service, nice selection of road/mtn/e gear to rent. I'll be back again on my next trip to Santa Barbara for sure!

Specialized Roubaix with DI2
Jul. 2021 • Solo
I’ve rented road bikes from Cal Coast several times over the last 5 or so years and they consistently deliver me a solid bike in great working condition. My latest rental was a Specialized Roubaix with DI2. I put about 150 miles on it including an assent of Gibraltar Rd and a descent of San Marcos Rd. The bike was perfect through all of it. I’m looking forward to my next vacation and bike rental to do it all again.

Everything You Need for a Santa Barbara Adventure
Jul. 2021
Cal Coastal Adventures has a nice selection of beach cruisers, mountain bikes, and e-bikes. helpful and energetic staff. Great location just a few blocks off the coastal bike path and near the heart of downtown. If we had more time, we probably would have indulged in one of their tours, but we only had a few hours to take a ride along the coast. The bikes are well-maintained and the prices are very reasonable.

Great equipment and service
Jun. 2021
I rented a Specialized electric bike. The equipment was in great condition but I had a problem when my chain dropped while changing gears on a hill (user error). We called their office and a truck came within 10 minutes with a replacement bike. Everyone was very courteous and the service/support was excellent. I will definitely use them again.

Sergio is the best!!!!
Jun. 2021
My finance and I did a private guided bicycling tour with Sergio, it was AMAZING!!! We had such a great time, Sergio is so passionate about Santa Barbara and showed us so many unique spots we would have never seen on our own. He took us around for 2.5 hours and we had a blast. Sergio was kind, warm, fun and gave us an experience we will never forget. He even gave us a tip on how to avoid traffic on our way back to LA! He took lots of great photos of us on my phone throughout the ride. A++++++ experience, don't even hesitate to go!!!!
