Tour de Force
Surrey Bike Griffith Park
Ready for a new spin on your next Griffith Park adventure? Explore it on a Surrey—the quirkiest four-wheel vehicle that’s powered by … you! Taking the helm, you’ll feel like you’ve boarded a private carriage, sans the horse. Nudge your pedal partner—it’s time to roll. Working side by side, head two miles south along the paved bike lane on Crystal Springs Drive, inhaling the refreshing scent of pine trees lining the way. You’ll feel the burn in your hamstrings (Surrey’s a workout!). When you reach the Griffith Park exit, witness another kind of “horsepower” in action—trains on the miniature Southern Railroad transporting delighted kids back and forth. Time to roll back up Crystal Springs Drive … and that includes some uphill effort! After completing the four-mile journey you’ll be surprised at the sweat you’ve worked up! After cooperating so well on the Surrey (ahem), be sure to make time for some friendly competition! Head to nearby GameHaus Café, a casual coffee shop with over 900 board game titles in its library. For $5 you get unlimited access to all of them. Warm up with the classics like Monopoly or try your hand at something new like Dixit or Camel Up, all the while savoring a slice of their famous home-baked fruit pies.
