This is a 15 mile round-trip ride on the LA River Greenway Trail. There's less than 150 ft of elevation gain. This is the Glendale Narrows Elysian Valley section of the LA River Trail and runs alongside the L.A. River for 7.4 miles (11.9 km) from the border of Burbank, California & Glendale, California at Victory Blvd and Riverside Drive downstream through the Glendale Narrows to Egret Park in Elysian Valley. It runs through Glendale, Griffith Park, Los Feliz, Atwater Village and Elysian Valley.
We'll be starting at the north end, near the intersection of Riverside Dr and Zoo Dr. There is a parking lot in the Pecan Grove Picnic Area in Griffith Park where we will park, and then ride our bikes along Zoo Dr and Riverside Drive to the bike way.
We'll stop in Frogtown on the bike path for lunch at the Spoke Bicycle Cafe https://www.spokebicyclecafe.com. There is also a brewery in Frogtown https://www.latimes.com/designla/la-design-frogtown-20180327-story.html
From the I-5 North, take the North Zoo Drive exit. Map a right turn onto Zoo Drive and continue about .7 miles to the Pecan Grove Picnic Area, on the right, to the parking lot.
Plan to meet the group in the parking lot at 10:45am, and we'll start riding at 11:00am. Any last minute questions, text or call Anita at (213)[masked]
