I'll just tag onto ooga-booga's posts

Glendora Mt Road/Glendora Ridge Route Rd up to Mt. Baldy Village. If you're a real glutton for punishment you can proceed farther up, past the Icehouse Canyon turn off, and tackle the switchbacks up to the Mt. Baldy Ski-lift area. Definitely a sufferfest!

San Luis Obispo south to (fill-in-your-location-here). Multi-day trip. Take Amtrak up to SLO and ride back along the coast. plenty of threads about this is BF, and its got nice views in its northern aspect, 'interesting' view farther south in the L.A./OC area (people watching). Pretty interesting. These days you'll probably end in San Clemente and take the train back to San Diego from there since Camp Pendelton's bicycle access has gotten pretty restrictive lately.

River Trails in the L.A. area. Try the Santa Ana River Trail (SART)and/or the San Gabriel River Trail (SGRT). Kinda boring, flat paved trails along the top to river levees, but the rides will give you some perspective when you go back to northern California. SART has a tricky part in the center (Yorba Linda to Corona), someone else might be able to chime in on that, but you could ride up from the beach to Yorba Linda and back for a decent 50 mile day.
