I was excited to hear that Uber has brought their electric assisted JUMP bikes to San Diego. I decided to use it as an excuse to explore a bit and highlight some of my favorite spots in the city.
I started off by picking up one of the bikes in Ocean Beach and rode it to one of my favorite spots out there to grab a chia or acai bowl called Nest. From there I cruised along the beach for a bit then popped over to Liberty Station and walked around. Then I had lunch at Soda & Swine
These bikes have an electric assistant with pedaling, which makes it a lot easier to ride long distances or up hills. It feels a bit like walking on those people conveyer belts at the airport, but on a bike. It made it really smooth and easy.
Overall I think that riding a bike is a great way to explore the city, and I love these bikes because you can just drop them off and grab another one and not have to worry about having it with you everywhere you go. It’s a perfect accessory to Uber car rides as well because you can bike and drive and bike and drive depending on the distance.
