For two hours, groups pedal single-speed cruisers, rolling across approximately 5–7 miles of Venice’s most scenic locals. Tours commence at the Venice canals, and then pass by famous homes including where Jim Morrison composed songs such as “People Are Strange” and “There’s a Tour Group Outside My House.” Along the way, an expert guide spouts stories, facts, and myths about each location. Tours frequently pause for photo ops, giving people the chance to snap shots along the boardwalk and the famous skateboarding locations of Dogtown.<p>
Venice Beach Bike Tours
Bryan Freeman wanted two things out of his career: to meet new people and spend time outdoors. With this in mind, Mr. Freeman's path seemed obvious. He would start giving bike tours. A self-described "fact guy," the expert guide draws upon his extensive knowledge of the Venice area to delight both tourists and California natives. From the Venice canals to the spacious mailboxes of celebrity homes, the expert guide tells stories about famous locations and uncovers some of the area's hidden gems. "Everyone always says they had no idea the tour would be so exciting," he says. "People think Venice is just the beach, but just a block away there is so much more."
Mr. Freeman doesn't keep his groups confined to the seats and cowboy saddles of bicycles. He frequently points out ideal spots for photo ops and occasionally pauses for activities, such as letting groups spray paint their names onto a legal-graffiti wall. He also supplies optional helmet cams that capture videos for souvenirs.
