Anyone out there have any suggestions on long rides in the LA area?
I'm looking for rides in around the downtown area and (relative) vicinity, ... a friend and I cycled the Palos Verdes loop last weekend and it was a perfect workout ... but a little far away. Any recommendations for Downtown, Eagle Rock, Pasadena, East LA rides that are moderate/intermediate on the hills, but somewhat easy on traffic? The river paths are nice, but a little flat for what we're looking for. Anywhere in the 15-35 mile range is reasonable. I've been searching around and a Griffith Park ride is all I have found so far ... it's a nice ride, but I'm looking for other routes for variety.
