Hills are not a particular concern for me, because I lived in west Los Angeles when I took up serious cycling as a UCLA student, and most of my favorite rides were in the hills of Bel Air, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and Malibu.
A lot of my favorite rides are in the Santa Monica mountains. Last Saturday we rode Mulholland from Calabasas to Westlake and down into Westlake Village. The week before we climbed Piuma and descended Stunt road. Great roads.
