About Handlebar Bike Tours
Handlebar Bike Tours was started by a Los Angeles teacher; who spent summer vacations cycling the world. Handlebar takes pride in hiring students and locals who know, and love, Los Angeles. Our guides want to share this truly unique capital of culture with fellow travelers, coasting through our diverse neighborhoods, on two wheels.
Our tours are ideal for taking in all of DTLA, in fact the Historic Core and More Tour stops at 9 out of Lonely Planet’s top 10 for Downtown. Our guides are full of interesting history, architecture and pop culture info you won’t find in a guidebook; and can recommend the best tacos, 5 star restaurants or Bukowski bars.
