Culver City Stn to Brentwood route
HI I am commuting Culver City Stn to San vicente/Barringon in Brentwood weekdays, arriving 945am.
Im taking metro to Culver City Stn then biking. My current route is Venice Blvd (bike lane) to right turn (N) on Maclaughlin which turns into Barrington. I like this because it is a straight ride, Im not a mornign person. I do the return trip also, leaving at about 645pm, later if I stop to eat. This route has some portions of Barrington/Maclaughlin that are not ideal for biking-- single lane both direction with not enough room to maintain 3 feet from parked cars and drivers to leave 3 feet to left of me. There are portions where I would not want to take the sole lane as I would impede a line of cars. There's also 1 minor hill on Barrington as it approaches Wilshire.
So I am wondering if anyone has recommendations on different routes with same start and end points. I see google has about 4 different route recommendations but i havent tried any yet.
My first issue is safety, id like to avoid roads with the problem i mention above. 2nd issue is trying to avoid hills. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
