BEST DAY EVER!
On New Years Day I was surprised by my husband and my friend Tish to a fantastically fun outing! They rented electric bikes from Pedego in Carlsbad, Ca.
Pedego offers electric and pedal bike sales, rentals, tours, and service.
The bikes have a battery pack on the back and will get you 20 miles at 20 mph without a single pedal if you don't want!!!! You'll get much further if you put in a little pedal power yourself.
One of the owners, John met us at the store and told us we were the first customers to use their new online reservation service. Had we not used it, he would have closed for the New Year. So lucky for us, we did. John was super friendly and excited about his awesome product. Plus he rented 8 bikes before we even got to the storefront so I didn't feel so guilty that he came in just for us.
Our mission was to spend the day bar and restaurant hopping without ever breaking a sweat.
First stop, Priority Public House.
A small locally owned American style gastropub with a bunch of beers on tap.
Pedego offers baskets and bike locks making for frequent stops stress-free.
Our second stop was a restaurant/bar that we all have been driving past for years and finally had the perfect excuse to stop into, Captain Keno's.
This is the epitome of a dive bar! Dark, tacky and probably hasn't been remodeled since it first opened.
Fantastic and fun!
And..... super cheap strong drinks.
Last stop, Union Kitchen and Tap in Encinitas.
We've been here several times and love it. Not as affordable at Captain Keno's but still a great crowd.
The only little "Boo Hoo" we ran into was that quite a few of the places we wanted to stop into were closed for New Years Day.!!!!
Guess we'll have to do this again.
We had plenty of people stopping us asking how we were going so fast. People seemed to love the Electric Bike concept.
We even challenged a Tesla driver to a little race. He accepted, we lost.
