About Handlebar Bike Tours
All Handlebar Bike Tours are 2.5 hours with 10-12 narrated stops, and an off bike break. Our tours are designed for casual bike riders, 6-8 miles, and relatively flat routes. We bike on city streets with, and without designated bike lanes, parks and pedestrian plazas. Handlebar Bike Tours is located at Grand Central Market, LA's 100+ yr old food hall, the perfect place for a pre/post ride meal. We have several tours to choose from; our Historic Core Tour is a top 10 of downtown with a whole lot of history mixed in, our Arts District Tour is an off the beaten path exploration of street art in this trendy neighborhood, our Skyline Tour surveys the more modern gathering spaces of L.A. both in the day and at night, on our Skyline Twilight Tour. Downtown L.A. has the most miles of protected bike lanes in the city, and a bike tour is a great way to experience L.A. like a local.

Skyline, & Skyline Twilight Tour

The Skyline, and Skyline Twilight tour visits the more modern gathering spaces of DTLA. Staples Center and L.A. Live, the home of the Lakers, Figueroa and 7th Street home of the tallest skyscrapers on the west coast, and several shopping destinations, as well as Grand Avenue's museums and performing arts venues are all new additions to the downtown skyline.

Jen was amazing. I ended up being the only one booking so she took me on a solo tour and showed me more than what was scheduled. The tour was very covid-safe, she gave easy-to-follow instructions while biking, and overall, it was a fun experience. Would definitely recommend to friends!

Thanks Chris, I really appreciate the review. I wonder which summer blockbuster we saw filming. You'll have to watch that Hotel Cecil doc on Netflix.

I felt very safe with a sanitized bike and contact-less waiver, as well as hand sanitizer available at all times. She had also provided me with water when I ran out of my own. So thoughtful to bring everything. Jen is very considerate of safety while riding, briefing me where we are going before we leave and makes sure that we are on the safe side of the road and out of traffic. I took the Arts District Tour (just me and my tour guide Jen) and it was fantastic. I learned so much and Jen is very knowledgeable! The Tour was chock full of great info! I left so inspired to do more art now because of it! I even got a little bonus off the beaten path tour of the arts district that many people may miss.

Arts District is a favorite of locals, many L.A. natives aren't aware of the amazing, and drastic changes happening in this once forgotten neighborhood. Kudos you for getting inspired by the creativity, and seeking adventure exploring by bike! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appreciate it.
