    What to Expect
    Spend an unforgettable 2-3 hours on a guided bike tour through Santa Monica and the historical neighborhoods of Venice Beach, California. The tour begins with a leisurely cruise through Santa Monica's charming downtown shopping disctric and stops in the heart of Venice Beach (near Muscle Beach), the birthplace of skateboarding and training grounds for a young Arnold Schwarzenegger. Venice Beach's Italian-influenced landscape is also widely recognized for its West Coast legal graffiti walls that attract street artists from around the world. Tour-goers will see street art pieces and architecture created by Chase, Rip Cronk, Emily Winters, Frank Gehry and other prominent figures. Riders will also be given some time to walk along the colorful Venice Boardwalk to purchase souvenirs and watch live street performances.

    Afterwards, you'll pedal through the picturesque Venice Canals, the quaint Italian inspired community, and then bike through Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice's trendy gathering place for both locals and visitors, declared by GQ as "The Coolest Block In America". Your guide will take you off the beaten path and show you all of these often-overlooked street galleries, leaving you with an appreciation for the talented, expressive minds that enrich the visual space of the community.

    In addition for the workout 😉, our tour guide ‘s anecdotes are way fun. He was also quite conscious of our safety all through the tour - which I very much appreciated. Really fun day! Two thumbs up from my teens (SICK!! According to them...😁).
