6 Places You Must Stop as You Zip From Costa Mesa to Newport Beach on an Electric Bike

With an Aventon Electric Bike, Exploring Costa Mesa and Newport Beach Is a Breeze

Whether you’re taking a trip to Southern California for a well-deserved escape or simply opting for a weekend staycation, one of the best ways to enjoy an area is to get outside and explore it. And while we may be a bit outspoken, we think exploring two cities is better than one! So if you’re in the mood for an outdoor adventure, slip on something cute and comfy, and hop on your Aventon Electric Bike to take a tour of some of Orange County’s best hot spots in Costa Mesa and Newport Beach. And don’t worry about the miles—we’re sure you’re in for a wheely good time. Electric Bike Newport Beach

Before your afternoon excursion on your Sinch Step-Through Foldable Ebike, caffeinating is crucial! Neat Coffee in Costa Mesa is the perfect neighborhood spot to start your day. Order an iced oat milk latte and a few Meet the Source energy balls, and you’ll be off to a great start!

1 p.m.: Stop 2

Where: Common Thread

After your coffee stop, it’s time to take a 1.6-mile ride down to 17th St to shop at Common Thread. Your Aventon bike can hit anywhere between 20 to 28 mph, so this trek will seem like a breeze. After you lock up your bike in front of the shop, head inside to browse all the quintessential OC beachwear you could ever hope for. From breezy sundresses to caps that’ll keep the sun out of your eyes on your ride, you’ll love perusing through Common Thread’s beautiful selection.

2 p.m.: Stop 3 

Where: A Market

We’re sure you’ve worked up an appetite by now! After ringing up your Common Thread purchase, get ready for a quick mile ride down to West Coast Hwy in Newport Beach. Even though the wind will be whipping through your hair, your ride will be smooth and steady thanks to your bike’s fat tires, which can take on nearly any terrain with ease. Once you’re on the highway, keep an eye out for A Market: a quaint red shop next to its sister business, A Restaurant. Take a second to relax and fuel up on fresh, scrumptious eats like a stacked sandwich or a colorful, refreshing salad.

Half a mile away from A Market is Vision Electric Boat Rental, where you can take some time off of your wheels and hit the water on an electric boat. Simply fold and lock up your Sinch Step-Through Foldable Ebike bike with one of Aventon’s recommended bike locks and be the captain of your own boat around Newport Harbor.

Where: The Crab Cooker

After an all-day excursion on your bike and time spent on the water, it’s time to treat yourself to an upscale seafood meal at The Crab Cooker! This fast-casual eatery is serving up truly delicious bites like chowder, crab cakes, cracked crab, lobster on a skewer and more, so be sure to come hungry. And while you’re eating, you can check the Aventon app on your phone to check your miles, goals and even share photos from your trip with the rest of the Aventon community.

6:30 p.m.: Final Stop

Where: The Wedge

What better way to end the day than with a stunning, cotton-candy sunset at The Wedge? As one of the top surfing spots in Orange County, we wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve been carrying your board with you on your bike all day. But even if you don’t plan on getting in the water, there’s nothing like sitting with your toes in the sand, reminiscing about the day before it comes to a close. What do you say, same time tomorrow?
