Art Deco, Mid Century Mod, cowboys, classic cars and Noir are just a few of the things that drew me to Los Angeles 24 years ago. I've spent summers on self supported cycle tours all over the world. Living, teaching and cycling in Downtown Los Angeles, I realized that DTLA was ready for its own bike tour. As a high school teacher, I've developed an academically researched tour, delivered in an entertaining way, on a flat route. Together with my artist friend Jenna, we run Handlebar Bike Tours in DTLA.

Her skal du være

Downtown is the origin story of Los Angeles. Los Pobladores founded LA at Olvera Street. The Historic Core is going through a rebirth as Beaux Arts office buildings transform into lofts, Vaudeville theaters reopen as concert venues, old banks morph into eateries, and prewar speakeasies are refurbished for a new generation. Yet Downtown still retains its Bukowski grittiness. We hit the top sites of DTLA, and secret spots not in any guide book.

As long-time LA county residents, we wanted to try a “tourists view” of the city, and Jennifer did not disappoint. We learned new and interesting details about places we’ve driven past for years. Jennifer took us on a clever, wide-ranging, winding path through town that kept traffic interactions at a minimum while taking us past iconic and historic locations. In addition to historical & background info, Jennifer pointed out locations of hidden restaurants and rooftop cocktail bars to visit later. She’s got a wealth of information if you ask her about things that are not necessarily on the tour, as well. The meet/end location at Grand Central Market is excellent, the tour starts late enough to get breakfast at the market, and the parking is as she describes. We took a ride on the Angel’s Flight funicular before the tour, since it’s right across the street. A couple of our group are fairly experienced cyclists: the bicycles and helmets provided were quite comfortable, light, and well maintained. Seat heights are easily adjustable. The ride is generally flat, but there are a few opportunities to shift gears, and the bikes responded smoothly. They’ve each got a rack on the back for large items, and a bag & water bottle holder on the handlebars for smalls. Jennifer disinfects the bicycles before and after tours, and offers sanitizer and wipes afterwards, as well.

Jennifer was amazing! Knowledgeable, funny, and super thoughtful of our group. She took the time to get to know us and gave us great recommendations based on where we were staying and what we wanted to do. Definitely recommend booking at the beginning of your trip, because you’ll leave with a better understanding of downtown and a list of exciting things to do! So glad we started our trip with Jennifer!

I am not a bike fan, so I was a little worried about the bike ride, 2:30 hours… Jen explained to me before that it was very easy and most of the way was going to be flat. And it really was!!! We had a lot of fun and Jen was an excellent host! We learned a lot about downtown LA and it’s history! Jen knows all the details and gives us advices about what to do and where to eat in each place. We really enjoy it.

Jen was incredible. I only had one day in LA and this tour was a perfect way for me to see the city. There was so much to see that I now want to come back and spend more time here in LA. 5 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed the experience.
