Our post Covid-19 protocols won’t be much different than our pre Covid-19 protocols, thats because we’ve always sanitized equipment, kept groups small and streamlined the paperless booking process. Handlebar Bike Tours was started by me, a 20 year veteran teacher. I’ve learned a thing or two over the years about how to prevent illness, and it was very important to me to bring that standard to the equipment we use.
Our helmets are cleaned with a two step sanitizing process, first they’re sprayed with Odoban, a eucalyptus disinfectant. Next they’re thoroughly wiped with Lysol wipes, then stored to until the next day; no back to back guest usage. Plus we replace the helmets every 6 months. We use the same 2 step disinfectant process for all the touch points on the bikes as well.
In addition to cleaning equipment on site, our online reservations and digital waiver completed ahead of time, means a no contact transaction at tour time. Finally, if you’ve ever been on a tour with us you know we keep the tour groups small and offer everyone a hand sanitizing wipe at the end of the ride. This is how we’ve always operated, and will continue to do so. If the thought of getting in a crowded tours bus freaks you out right now, try out a bike tour, the built in, social distance, way to see L.A.
