I trust the TR community and will prioritize recommendations from here. Stava segments really just shows me Phil Giamon’s greatest hits, Google gives me mostly scenic cruiser rides…
I’m a roadie from NYC and my wife and I will be in LA for 10 days over the holidays and I’m looking for some must do rides in the area. I’m staying downtown, but will have a car. I’ll be riding mornings, starting around 6am and will have 2-3 hours, maybe more if my wife has plans that morning. 20-30mile rides, or shorter focused on climbing, are ideal.
This time has been a planned 10 day “vacation” from the trainer, coming right in between SSB1 & SSB2. Additionally my wife and I have been considering moving to LA for sometime now, we have made many trips to LA in the past few years but I’ve never brought a bike. This trip is meant to be our final “go/no-go” call so I’d like to experience what I will have access to as a cyclist resident in LA.
As of now I know I want to ride in the following areas;
- Griffith Park, but have no clue what entrance/route/loop to do (Would love one I could ride too from DTLA as well)
- Topanga Area (I have driven Tuna Canyon Rd many times, but are there other must do climbs in that area?)
Thank you guys for any input.
