Full description

Hop on your dutch style bike and head off on a historic cycle of downtown Los Angeles. Pedal past the area's top sights and hear stories of each location from your local guide. Feel like a total local on your 8-speed Pure bike, exploring downtown.

Embark on a round trip tour from Grand Central Market. Begin your bike tour in front of Angel's Flight, a functioning, iconic 1901 funicular. Saddle up on your 8-speed Pure bike, and start exploring like a local.

First, ride through the Historic Core's vintage Vaudeville theater district, fast becoming a shopping and nightlife spot. Next make your way through LA's more modern neighborhood of South Park to the LA Live Sports and Entertainment Complex with a stop at Crypto Arena, home of the Lakers.

Ride along Figueroa St. shopping destinations, past LA's tallest skyscraper, and stop at the eery Cecil Hotel of horrors and hear the mysterious goings on. Cruise through the Civic Center to Olvera Street, the city's oldest neighborhood, now full of quaint shops and food kiosks.

Next head up to Union Station and its Mission Revival splendor that was the backdrop to the 2020 Oscars Ceremony. Ride through Grand Park up to Grand Avenue with its cultural spots like the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Broad Museum.

See hidden gems you'd never see from a car, bus, or a walking tour. And after a mild workout, finish up at Grand Central Market, just in time for lunch.
