About Social Cycle®

Social Cycle® is Southern California’s original 16 passenger bicycle powered party on wheels.

Ideal for get-togethers of all kinds, this unique group rental bicycle is a festive, refreshing, eco-friendly alternative to the typical party bus — encouraging socializing and having fun with friends (even making some new ones!), all while safely enjoying our fresh California air, local sights and light exercise outdoors.


Perfect for birthdays, bachelor/bachelorettes, team building, corporate events, parades, wine tastings, pub crawls, social mixers, etc…..the possibilities are endless.


Social Cycle® has both private and public tours.  Reserve the entire bike for a private tour or book individual seats and join other small groups.


We require a 2 hour minimum (2.5 on our PB and Little Italy routes), but you may rent for as long as you like.


If you have more than 16 people in San Diego, it’s no problem, we’ve got you covered!  We have 4 bikes in operation, so rent multiple bikes at a time!  We currently have 1 bike in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, however, we hope to add more to our fleet soon.

A Social Cycle® Captain is included in the rental fee. Passengers must be at least 21 years old to ride.  We will accommodate passengers under 21 with advance notice, however, no one under 18 is allowed on board per our insurance requirements.


Located in San Diego, Palm Springs, and Santa Barbara with six eye-catching bikes in operation, Social Cycle® is currently hosting lively tours throughout each city.  San Diego tours are in Downtown San Diego (Gaslamp, East Village, Seaport), North Park, Little Italy, Bankers Hill, Hillcrest and Pacific Beach!  Palm Springs tours are in the heart of Downtown Palm Springs and Santa Barbara tours are in the “Funk Zone” area.


General tour routes offered by Social Cycle® are available on our San Diego Routes, Palm Springs Routes, and Santa Barbara Routes pages. Stops along each route on private tours can be customized. We have over 75 partnerships with bars and restaurants along our routes that offer food & drink specials ONLY for Social Cycle customers.  How you spend your tour time is pretty much up to your group!
