Taking you effortlessly to the ocean and beyond

Beach cruisers and cruiser bikes have been around for nearly 70 years. They’re as popular as ever and it’s not hard to see why.

Swept back handlebars, longer relaxed wheelbase, nice comfy seat, and a relaxed riding position, make these bikes one of the most enjoyable ways to get around. These are bikes for coasting along the boardwalk in your flip-flops, and probably swim shorts or swimsuit, and enjoying the views. Not for striving to beat your PB in a tight spandex outfit.

But…it’s not quite so effortless when you have a ton of stuff to carry: cooler full of sodas (and ice!), beach snacks, surfboard, donkey. The list goes on.

Added to that, you’re not even going to consider going to the beach unless it’s a hot sunny day…and then all that huffing and puffing will make you sweaty.

What’s a gal or guy to do?

The solution, as you’ve probably guessed, is electric-powered beach cruisers.

These beauties have all the benefits of traditional beach cruisers in terms of relaxed style and carrying capacity. Plus, they have a powerful motor to whisk you there with ease.

Here’s the quick answer: sixthreezero Around The Block Women’s Beach Cruiser

Cool beach cruiser accessories

Before you hit the boardwalk, remember that you need to stay safe and look sharp on the way to the beach. You have no idea who may be watching…and if you’re too busy watching other people then you may not see that donkey on the sand and fall off.

So, I’d recommend that you upgrade yourself and your cruiser with some of the following. Most of these are optional, particularly the last one. But number 1 is essential.

1. Beach cruiser bicycle helmets

No arguments, get one. These are a must for keeping you safe. This one is perfect. But this one is the most gorgeous bike helmet I’ve ever seen and perfect for cruising down to the beach!

2. Cup holder for beach cruiser bike

Forget water bottle holders.

Yeah, I know they’re important, but who can step outside without a biodegradable paper cup of Salted Caramel White Chocolate Mocha…?

Fear not, because now there is a stylish cup holder you can fit onto your trusty steed. No more balancing your coffee on your handlebars.

3. Beach cruiser bell

Some folk use these to tell pedestrians they’re coming past. Their real purpose is to tell the whole beach you’ve arrived on your funky new e cruiser. Awesome heart symbol design? Bling Bling!

4. Best cafe bike lock

Security is important, so make sure you lock up your pride and joy when you’re off hitting the waves. One of these in a funky color makes a great deterrent and ensures that you’re cruising home at the end of the day and not walking.

5. Bicycle beach chair holder

…and finally, this. This is just awesome. Buy one now.

Ready to check out the bikes? Okay, let’s go.

ONWAY Electric Cruiser Bike

Great looks, powerful disc brakes, balloon tires for a smooth ride, and a laidback riding position.

All for this incredible price. What’s not to like?

This is a fantastic stripped-back beach cruiser with a rear hub 500W motor that will take you to the beach in style. Love it.

You can have any color you like, so long as it’s black.

sixthreezero Around The Block Women’s Beach Cruiser

How about this bike for some classic beach cruiser looks? The Around The Block from sixthreezero is a work of art and comes with a choice of two colors (Mint Green or Teal Blue), 7 gears, and a choice of two powerful motors (250W or 500W).

I love the sweptback handlebars and the relaxed riding position. Plus this bike is good for riders from 5-6ft, and up to 250 Lbs.

Worth noting that the low-step through frame is good for riders (like myself) who aren’t as flexible as they maybe used to be (not that I ever was!) and sometimes struggle to get their leg thrown over the crossbar.

X-Treme Scooters Malibu Elite Step Through Beach Cruiser

The Malibu Elite comes Baby Blue and ships with some great features: kickstand (handy for loading and unloading), rear pannier rack, comfort seat and basket (attachable to the handlebars or rear rack).

It also has a carrying capacity of 350 lbs. Useful for larger riders or if you’re hauling beach snacks and sodas for everyone.

X-Treme Catalina Women’s Beach Cruiser

From the same stable as the Malibu Elite, the Catalina is a fantastic value ebike and loaded with extras.

Baby blue or pink design. Low step-through frame style with kickstand. Front basket and rear pannier rack. USB phone charging point….and cup holder! An awesome choice.

Addmotor Three Wheeler ebike

How about something totally different? The Addmotor might just fit the bill for you.

With three wheels, this ebike is an ideal choice if you can sometimes feel a bit wobbly on a two-wheeler. Maybe the terrain is uneven or you’re a little out of practice. Three wheels also means that the Addmotor has the highest carrying capacity of any of the bikes on my list at 450 lbs for rider and cargo.

Cargo can all go in the huge rear basket and with three wheels, the bike stays rock steady as you load and unload.

Add in the fat tires and back seat rest (an unusual and very welcome feature on a beach cruiser) and this is one of the most fun ebikes out there.

Now, what are you waiting for? Go buy that e beach cruiser and get to the ocean!
