Definitely some of the best riding in SoCal.

There is also a lot of surprisingly good climbing in the Hollywood Hills up to Mulholland (which includes Beverly Hills and Bel Air). A lot of the roads have very little traffic and lots of big shady trees -- not to mention zillion dollar mansions on many of the streets. It's surprising how good the riding is there, and it will give you a good taste of LA with occasional views out over the LA basin and SF Valley.
Thanks for the tips! I have wanted to ride Mulholland. It would be fun to see how the LA rich compares to San Diego's. The latest tendency down here in places like La Jolla is to build truly immense gates as if a Shogun or Medici prince lives behind it.
