This handy compact guide tells you all you need to know about seeing Los Angeles on two wheels. With chapters dedicated to various sights and neighborhoods—Venice, Santa Monica & Malibu, Beverly Hills & West Hollywood, Downtown LA, Pasadena, Altadena & the Rose Bowl, and Los Feliz, Echo Park, Silver Lake & Griffith—City Cycling USA: Los Angeles dispels the myth that the City of Angles is for cars only.
Each area is mapped out in detail and includes recommendations for cafes, bars, galleries, museums, shops, and parks that are worth a visit. Cyclists can follow a set itinerary or pick and choose as they wish. For cycling enthusiasts, the section on Racing and Training gives some context to Los Angeles’s cycling heritage and offers ideas for longer and more scenic routes in the countryside.
