    Seeking Route Guidance - Woodland Hills area to Glendale (Glenoaks/Brand area)

    Hi there

    I don't pop in here much but when I do it's because I'm clueless. I live in the Valley - Woodland Hills area. My offices are in Glendale. Looking for the best route to get from home to work. I've googled it, but it recommends taking the dreaded Victory bike path which I am not a huge fan of. I know I could go straight down Ventura then over the hill, but that's also less ideal. Any ideas on a good route? I am ok with climbing a bit to get there as well. I was thinking maybe something runs along the 118 and 210?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Rob

    You could climb to Rinaldi and take it east towards San Fernando and catch Glen Oaks from there. Its going around the valley from the North.

    Strava has a route builder than can help with mapping out a ride. It will also show more popular rides.
