The Los Angeles Explorers Club will host their upcoming bicycle tour in the San Gabriel Valley this Sunday, July 28th, focusing the 14 mile ride on 1980’s movie locations within the South Pasadena and Pasadena area.

Now in their 5th year, the LA Explorers Club curates historical and cultural bicycle tours throughout Los Angeles County to celebrate Los Angeles in addition to the figures and stories that shape our community. “Each group ride has a theme and we share the story together as we pedal”, says LA Explorers Club founder, Aimee Gilchrist.

“We’ve been doing these tours for over 5 years and this is our first ride focused on Hollywood films and our first tour in the South Pasadena neighborhood. Since South Pasadena is a hotbed for filming and the home to many classic locations from the best 80’s films, we just had to bring this ride to life”.

The LA Explorers Club ride will start and finish at The Cub House Bicycle Shop located at 2510 Mission Street in San Marino, CA. It will weave through set locations for movies such as Back to the Future, Teen Wolf and Halloween.

This free ride is a fun, community building, social event while also providing an afternoon of exercise and storytelling. Riders need to be comfortable riding with traffic (following the rules of the road), riding moderate hills and distances (no beginners please) and have a bicycle in good working order.

Riders are asked to RSVP at and all pre-registered riders will receive a commemorative ride patch. 80’s attire is also encouraged and a costume contest with prizes will happen at the After-Party back at The Cub House Bicycle shop.
