It’s no secret here at Bikes and Hikes LA, we’re a big fan of ditching your car, canceling your tour bus reservation, and hopping on a bike to experience the city in an up close and personal way. We’d rather you experience our beautiful city with the breeze blowing through your hair and the pavement whizzing by beneath you than trapped in a stuffy box of glass and metal. Don’t even get us started on the LA traffic. You just landed at LAX- drop your bags at the hotel, and come on over to our brand new LA Bike Shop, where we’ll hook you up with the sweetest set of wheels you’ve ever ridden upon, and you’ll take off on our world famous LA in a Day Bike Tour. You’ll ride through 32 miles of our favorite places in Los Angeles. Feel like saying what’s up to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air Mansion? Done. Want to see how the other half lives in the hills of Beverly? You’re all set. How about breaking for lunch on the beach in Venice? We’ve got you. This incredible, full day city tour is packed full of insider LA history, tips from your expert local guides, far too many Instagram opportunities for you to get the best picture of your life, scenic views for the most epic TikTok you’ve ever created, and most importantly, COVID-safe protocols to keep you and your loved ones happy and healthy!
