By trading in gas pedals for bike pedals, Bikes and Hikes LA riders adopt a green method for sightseeing the shores and slopes surrounding Los Angeles on top-notch, fully suspended hybrid road bikes from specialized brands such as Trek and Fuji. Carefully researched routes—such as that of the Movie Star Homes Tour that takes guests down Rodeo Drive and the Sunset Strip, and includes a walking tour of a famous Beverly Hills mansion—lay the groundwork for what is ranked as TripAdvisor's best tour in West Hollywood. For the LA in a Day tour, sightseers pedal by celebrity homes in Beverly Hills and Bel-Air before exploring picturesque Venice, Santa Monica, and Marina Del Rey. Tour guides can accommodate groups of 2–100 people, providing translators in any language and building custom experiences, such as scavenger-hunt bike rides or group levitations, upon request.

The atmosphere is charged with energy at the Kinetic Cycling studio, where flat-screen TVs play music videos and surround-sound speakers blast upbeat tunes. Soft lights beam up from the floor, bathing the rows of students pedaling away on stationary bicycles in blue and purple. During classes, an energetic instructor sits atop a bike in front of students, guiding them through the challenging workouts while providing inspiration and motivation.
A triathlete since 2004, Brandon Hament knows cycling's physical rigors and benefits firsthand. At The Cycle Annex - the indoor cycling facility Brandon has run since 2007 - his crew of instructors imbue beginners with pedal-pumping confidence at introductory sessions during which pupils first familiarize themselves with their bike before hopping on and burning calories. For cycling students of all levels, Brandon's team lead more intensive workouts such as the Ultimate 90, a combination of core and strength training that segues into an hour of riding. An abdominal workout on yoga mats follows cycling during AB 20 sessions, while interval cycling gives way to running and stretching during brick workouts. In between exercises, guests can hydrate with complementary gulps of The Cycle Annex's oxygenated, filtered water.
