We Know WeHo: Jason Bowers of Bikes & Hikes LA

Summer is well under way, and our We Know WeHo team has been doing a little exploring outside of “the Village” with some summer traveling both near and far.   Speaking of travel, this week’s episode takes on a Tour de France theme featuring West Hollywood’s version of bikes and wine.


Jason Bowers, General Manager of Bikes and Hikes LA, joins Tracy and Maxine and by the end of the conversation it is easy to see why this West Hollywood-based company is consistently rated as the #1 Outdoor Activity Operator in LA.  Bike Shop LA is run out of the same location on the corner of La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd and they sell new and used bikes, kids bikes, electric bikes and also have expert mechanics to perform bike repairs and tuneups.  

You don’t have to be a tourist to enjoy their ever popular “LA in a Day” bike tour or two options to hike to the top of the Hollywood Sign – with the full experience hike taking 2.5 hours or the express hike at 1.5 hours.  Local residents can use code WEHO20 for 20% of a tour.  Insider tip:  consider opting for the electronic bike upgrade for your tour of LA!

Mikey Consbruck from V Wine Room rounds out this Tour de France episode with a few of his favorite summer sipping picks that include a light white from Portugal, a traditional rosé from Provence, a Gavi from Italy, and five different Rieslings from Germany.  His red picks are a local Syrah and Grenache from California that can be served either room temperature or chilled – and of course Tracy adds her favorite, Lambrusco to the list!  Pop by and pick up a bottle to go to enjoy poolside or at your favorite Hollywood Bowl summer concert and enjoy a 20% discount.  Insider tip:  pick up a bottle of the light Portugal “porch-pounder” white.
