Meet Danny Roman, Bikes and Hikes LA

At the busy intersection of Santa Monica and San Vicente Boulevards in West Hollywood, tour buses wait to make a left turn at a notoriously long stoplight while passengers crane their necks in hopes of catching a glimpse of someone, anyone, famous.

Just down the block, at the Bikes and Hikes LA shop, owner Danny Roman can be found convincing visitors that there’s a better way to see Los Angeles. Roman and his staff organize independent, guided tours on bike, foot, sailboat and kayak.
