Fly Rides USA is the premier electric bike retailer in SoCal and throughout the U.S. We only carry the highest quality electric bikes like Specialized, Pivot, Haibike, Riese and Muller, Bulls, Focus and Tern.
We have 2 thriving store locations in La Jolla, CA and Hollywood, CA where we specialize in ebike sales, service, tours and rentals. We’re currently the #1 rated tour in San Diego and #1 rated outdoor activity in LA on TripAdvisor. We also have a growing eCommerce business and are expanding in to offering multi-day luxury eMTB tours overseas.
We’re a team of A players who are passionate about biking and often mountain bike together as well as participate in local eMTB races like the Boogaloo series. We work hard, but have fun as a team. The owners are committed to making the Fly Rides family not just a fun place to work, but also one that is professionally and financially rewarding.
In an industry that has seen thousands of Independent Bike Dealers close up in the last decade due to lackluster sales, the Electric Bike Industry is a beacon of light. We started San Diego Fly Rides in early 2011 and have seen amazing growth year over year. 2018 is already a banner year like we’ve never seen before. We are looking to grow our team in a variety of positions, including marketing, sales, IT, customer service, bike tech, and tour guide roles. If you are a motivated, communicative team player that loves to learn and loves bikes, get in touch! If you’re a good fit, you can join an established and rapidly growing company where you’ll feel part of the family.
Please ask yourself the following questions to decide whether you are the type of person who will excel at Fly Rides.
