This is your chance to stop and smell the…art!
In Long Beach fashion, we’re taking over the streets to tour the art murals in downtown Long Beach on our bicycles. We meet in the morning at MADE by Millworks, an amazing store of local and artisan goods, where you can pick up your very own free map of all the murals in Long Beach. Just ask the person behind the counter for a mural map.
We’ll be meeting at MADE at 9:45am and kicking off at 10, so don’t miss us. You will check in with the tour guide, Nicole, when you arrive. As always, we have our final stop at Berlin cafe for some lunch and free coffee/tea. Bring water, lunch money, sunscreen, and your camera.
It’s a very easy-paced bike ride, suitable for kids over 7. Total riding time is two hours. Bring your friends and family from out of town, because this is the kind of relaxed fun that brightens up your whole Saturday.
The Bike Mural Tour of Long Beach is a local project to help you discover, view, and appreciate the city’s murals. Every 3rd Saturday you can spend time with friends and fam on this tour exploring the mural scene in downtown Long Beach, because each month there is a new route. Come marvel at your city’s outdoor art!
