I second hamster's motion. If you want a good route through PV look at the ship-to-shore tour de cure route. I *loved* the PV portion. Beautiful roads, some really nice climbs... look into it. Here's the route: Tour de Cure Century Route - A bike ride in L.A., CA
basically between mile 15 and 45 is fabulous.
The LA River trail is a shockingly unscenic path along the "river" but it's good riding. You can also cruise down to seal beach and go down and back on PCH as far as you desire.
If you want a longer ride, you can motor down LART to long beach, and then over to seal beach, head up San Gabriel River Trail, which connects back to the Rio Hondo river trail at the whittier narrows natural area, which dumps you into the LART.
Lots of options - if any of them sound appealing hit me up and I'll pound out a map for you.
Where are you getting a bike?
