July 16, 2022

Ready for your next epic ebike ride? Look no further than Orange County, California. Pack your bags, tune up your bike, and head to the west coast for a new adventure in biking.

Why Is Orange County Good For Ebiking?

Can you say "perfect weather?" Orange County is nice all year. Rain is scarce and temps are moderate. There's often a breeze off the ocean. When you're finished with your ride there are plenty of great watering holes and fabulous restaurants where you can relax and socialize. Take along the EVRYjourney ebike from sixthreezero, put on a pannier or basket, and get your shopping done at the end of your ride.

Orange County Ebike Laws

Orange County has some pretty strict ebike laws. Only Class 1 and Class 2 ebikes, which are limited to 20mph, are allowed on paved, off-road bikeways. Class 3 ebikes are not allowed on paved bikeways at this time. All classes of ebikes are restricted from using unpaved trails within wilderness areas and regional parks in Orange County. You can ride any class of ebike on a regular street or road.

Where To Ride In Dana Point

Beautiful Dana Point has wonderful biking trails with stunning views of the coastline. Try the San Juan Creek Trail for a trip through the historic San Juan Capistrano that ends at Doheny State Beach. Or take the bike trail from Doheny Beach to the San Clemente Pier. This is a fairly easy out-and-back that is popular with ebikers.

Where To Ride In San Clemente

The San Clemente Beach Trail is a lovely ride right along the water. Be alert while you ride as there are a few areas where it is required that you walk your bike. Other popular trails in San Clemente include:

  • Rancho San Clemente Ridgeline Trail

  • Camp Pendleton Vista Point
  • Sea Summit at Marblehead Trail

You must always check local regulations for ebike rules and restrictions before heading out.

Laguna Beach is a wonderful spot for road riding. Take your ebike out on Glenneyre St. and enjoy the "sharrows" for bikes and cars. It can get congested, so be sure to obey all the traffic laws and wear a helmet for safety. 

Laguna also has mountain biking trails for all levels of riders. The Laguna Coast Wilderness Park offers guided nature tours on bike in addition to riding trails. The Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park has more than 30 miles of trails to explore.
