“We’re starting a sightseeing revolution in West Hollywood by getting people out of their cars and on to our bikes.” So says Bike and Hikes LA, a guided tour company that offers biking and hiking tours of some of Los Angeles’ most popular attractions. We hear this old paradigm all the time –“LA can only be experienced by car”. The new paradigm is “LA can be experienced at eye level on foot and by bicycle”. Especially here in West Hollywood. (Tripadvisor has named Bikes and Hikes LA “The #1 Outdoor Activity in Los Angeles”)
With West Hollywood being anointed the “Most walkable California City” several years running, it’s no wonder eco-tourism is taking its place front and center to showcase this outdoor tourist paradise. And, Bikes and Hikes LA is at the hub of that movement.
