Það sem verður gert

Our round trip starts at Grand Central Market, cruising through Little Tokyo to the heart of the Arts District Bloom's Square/Angel City Brewery; you'll hear about the AD's former history; sprouting up around the train depot & farm industry that flourished at the turn of the century. Next up The American Hotel, est. 1905 as a respite for African American's during segregation, and later, pioneering artists. On to the Container Yard/Barker Block neighborhood, full of changing, large format murals. Bring your cameras because you've never seen so much open air art. We roll past cafes, distilleries, and highlight new development & history in front of the Biscuit Co. Lofts. Along the way we'll point out the notable eateries popping up in this industrial neighborhood, and check out the big business players such as Hyperloop, Spotify, Warner Brothers Music and Soho House. Next up SCI-ARC school of architecture, then to our off-bike break at Hauser & Wirth Gallery complex. MOCA and cruising Little Tokyo's 1st St. Ramen houses returns us to GCM. This tour goes deeper into the AD than most people venture, and reveals street art in hidden alleys not many know about. Throughout the tour you'll learn about artists behind the murals, history, culinary scene, new development and keeping artists in the Arts District. The AD by bike is truly an urban adventure.

I've been a High School Teacher, traveller and Downtown L.A. resident for a few decades now. On midnight rambles by bike, I've covered every street and alley in DTLA. I want everyone to love cycling this city as I do, so I've chosen a route that's easy, a little off the beaten path and features the most interesting parts of the Arts District. Together with an artist friend of mine, Jenna, we run Handlebar Bike Tours, focusing on DTLA.

Staðsetning

There are 10 narrated stops; we tell you the past present and future of this emerging neighborhood. We have 2 off-bike breaks where guests explore 10-15 minutes on their own at Hauser and Wirth fine art gallery and the Arts District Co-op, a collective of textiles made by local artists. The highlight of this tour is the Murals, from fine artist, to street artists and taggers. The AD is an open air gallery, you just have to know where to look!

This experience was great! Very unique way to experience the city and learn about it's history and culture. Really enjoyed all the context for the various works and it felt like the perfect amount of time and pacing. She gave us some great recommendations in the area to eat at and explore after. I am not used to cycling, especially not in traffic, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be! Do it!

I wanted to do something special for my birthday- and choose the DTLA bike tour. It’s always fun to bike around town and see things you’d never see in a car. Jennifer was so knowledgeable about the history of the arts District- the murals and overall culture. My husband and I have taken bike tours in Amsterdam and Paris — this one ranked with those!

Excellent experience Jenna is very passionate about art and the urban scene, she knew her stuff, was full of curious facts and kept me interested in everything on the tour. Also was very patient with my english ;-) An activity that you shouldn’t miss if you are interested in urban art, or simply want something different from what typical tours in LA offer. The bicycle was very comfortable, for someone who uses a bike from time to time, I found the activity very comfortable and at no time I got tired, the two and a half hours of the trip went quickly because of how interesting it was.

It was such a cool experience that I highly reccommend to everybody visiting LA Downtown. You get to see streets and areas which you would never find and to do that by bike is very conveniant and confortable at the same time.

Jen was an amazing tour guide. She greeted us straight away when we got there, we could hear her really well on her speaker while following her, she made sure everyone was safe and she made sure we could stop and look around at a few things too. She gave us a really great tour of the art around the district and a really informed understanding of the works and the artists, as well as some fun facts in between. Highly recommend taking this tour!!

Jennifer is a great guide who has an abundant amount of knowledge about the Arts District and how it has changed over time. I definitely recommend this tour if you enjoy art and cycling.
