If you're a coffee lover, you should come hang out with us. According to CNBC, San Diego is one of the top 10 best coffee cities in America... and we are FANS. Every block near the office seems to have a coffee shop and even a few local roasters. While we love them all, these are our go-to favorites:
Bikes, cars and vehicles. At Electra, we love all of them. In fact, plenty of our bikes have been inspired by cars... even planes and trains! So, we asked a couple employees to play show and tell. Here is a little more about the hot wheels we have rolling around Encinitas and up to the office.

At Electra HQ, we take meal time almost as serious as coffee time. Getting a bite to eat around the office is super easy... or super hard. Just depends on if you're good at deciding what you want to eat. Nonetheless, there are a ton of great restaurants within walking and biking distance.
Can you feel that? It's officially spring, and we are counting down the days until summer. In Encinitas, you'll catch us riding to the local surf spots - Swamis and Moonlight Beach - but we wanted to know where your favorite riding destination is when the sun is shining. We asked friends and fans of Electra and here is what you told us:
42% said "Unhurry up." - I love riding around my city.
San Diego is known to be one of the top cities for beer around the globe and we don't take our craft brewers for granted... But what good is an ice cold pint without a delicious slice of pizza to accompany it? Lucky for us, we're surrounded by pizzerias that are just a quick bike ride away. From classic cheese to local favorites, it was hard to narrow down our top shops to four.
Ice cream is never a bad idea. Seriously. Just look at our kids' bikes, helmets and bells. Ice cream is a staple for Electra. This is no surprise, considering there are so many mouthwatering ice cream spots near the office. Old-fashioned ice cream, frozen yogurt and gelato. How can we refuse? Here are a few of the Electra team's favorite places to stop by...
When the Electra team isn't in the office, there is a very high likelihood you can find us at the beach. Being in sunny San Diego, there is no excuse not to enjoy some Vitamin D, sand and water. It's just too easy to hop on a bike and cruise on over to one of our favorite (locals only) surf spots.
