This shop rents the largest number of ebikes on the island. This is a glorious way to wander around SJI with it rolling hills that leave regular bikers struggling up inclines. I was a little apprehensive, never having used an ebike. It took no more than 5 minutes to get comfortable....so if you are thinking about it, just DO IT!! The owner and staff at the shop are excellent. Hoping to go back and kayak as well...

What an excellent experience. We rented bikes for the afternoon. We checked several other places in town and Discovery had the best rates. We got the power assist bikes which was perfect for hills. You can choose when to turn the power option on and off so you can ride normally but have a little boost at the bottom of a hill. Service was great and they stashed some gear for us so we had less to deal with when we were riding. They offer multiple day rates so I am looking forward to going back next summer and making a long weekend out of it.

Amazing Bike tour on top o the line Ebikes! We, mature four friends, on a road trip up the Pacific coast, decided to stay in the San Juan Islands for a few days. We wanted to experience San Juan - to see its sights and also to visit its historical sites in a unique and adventurous way. Discovery Adventure Tours provided the way - a half day bicycling tour on top of the line pedal assist E-bikes. The entire tour was fun, relaxing and informative. Our guide, Kelly, was wonderful. I recommend this tour and this company without hesitation.
