Hollywood Sign and CicLAvia Ride

This 58 mile route involves about 4000 ft of climbing, featuring a climb up above the famous landmark Hollywood sign and then into Downtown LA and out to Venice on the CicLAvia route.

This will be a somewhat challenging ride and is recommended for people who don't mind a good climb. Roads may be sometimes narrow and in poor condition; excellent bike handling skills are recommended. What goes up must also come down: confidence in descending is also recommended - very hilly (first 25 miles) B ride.


Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2271446

Meet at 7:30 AM and roll at 8:00 AM. If you want to carpool, we will be leaving from Euro Cafe at 6:30 AM.

 

Safety:

Helmets are mandatory on all BOBie rides. Bring a spare tube and a method to inflate, two bottles of water, nutrition and appropriate clothing to be comfortable during the entire ride.

Be sure to have Sun Screen for HOT or SUNNY days.

FOG, DRIZZLE, or MIST, or any other extreme weather: our new policy is to meet at the scheduled place and time and decide to wait or cancel depending on the conditions at the time of ride. Rain cancels the ride.

If you cancel one hour or less before the scheduled Meet Up time please call or text me [masked]) to avoid delays.

Please bring Emergency ID and a cell phone (is recommended).

    I couldn't make it there on time. 8 a.m. I was still at home. Drove to Norwalk Green Line station and I took the train to LAX. Started the ride at Aviation & Imperial Hwy, I headed straight to Beverly Dr, up Coldwater Cyn to Mulholland Dr. Got near the Hollywood sign, looked like a dirt road going up, so I didn't try. When I got to downtown, at the cycLAvia starting point, it was already around 2 p.m. I didn't go all the way to Santa Monica, only up to Sepulveda, made left turn and headed back to the train station. May be the good thing about doing it solo: I can take all the time to enjoy the route. I'll upload some of the photos I took.

      Looking at the map, now I understand why I couldn't get up to the top of the Hollywood sign. I continued on the Mulholland Hwy instead of turn right on Ledgewood Dr to Deronda Dr. It was not easy to see the map on my phone. May be next time I will try again to the top.

      Going solo does give you freedom. The climb to the sign was tough. There were segments of 17 percent. Youv had to deal with walkers and pot holes and sandy areas. On the way down it was braking every inch of the way...12 mph avg. Well at least it is off my bucket list now.
