30 Electra Rides

We all have rides around our neighbourhoods that have become our 'go tos' for a good time. While you might keep your favourites a closely guarded secret, that’s not how we roll here at Electra. After 30 years with fun at our core, we have a list of incredible rides, and now we are ready to share them with you.

Here are our top 30 rides for you to enjoy, be inspired by and go out to tackle yourself. The Electra team extends far past the sandy beaches of SoCal so get your passports ready for a good time and bring your adventure buddy.
