What is the San Diego River Bike Path?

The San Diego River Bike Path is a scenic route that stretches from Old Town San Diego to the beach. It offers a picturesque journey along the San Diego River, perfect for sightseeing and capturing beautiful photos. Check out the video below to see the route.

Why Choose an E-bike with a Hub Drive Motor?

For this ride, we used the FLX Babymaker II belt drive e-bike with a hub drive motor. E-bikes provide an extra boost of power, making it easier to navigate through different terrains. The hub drive motor offers a smooth and efficient ride, ensuring a comfortable journey, and with the stealth, sleek look of the Babymaker, the only way people will know it's an e-bike is how fast and effortlessly you're riding.
