The weather is always perfect for a bike ride in Los Angeles. So grab your beach cruiser bike or your mountain bike and head for one of these great trails.
Get Away From It All
If you’d really like some peace and quiet you need to ride the Devils Canyon Dam Truck Trail. It runs alongside a babbling creek in the Angeles National Forest and is the very definition of solitude. It has a very gentle grade that even children and inexperienced riders can handle. The road is closed to public traffic. The only motorized vehicles you will see are the occasional public works cars and trucks. There may be plenty of hikers for the first mile but soon they peter out and it’s just you and your bike.
Less Traffic, More Fun Biking
There are plenty of biking opportunities down in the city that let you avoid the traffic. The Ballona Creek Path will take you all the way to the beach, from Culver City to Playa Del Rey. And there are no cars allowed!
This is a great bike trail for an ebike. A little motor assist on the way back after a day spent playing in the ocean is a good idea. Look for electric bikes for sale that offer both pedal-assist mode and full electric mode to get the most from your ride.
Bike To Concerts & L.A. Events
Instead of worrying about parking the car at the big concert, ride your bike. Biking to events in the greater L.A. area is not only good exercise, but it’s also smart. You can skip the parking fees and the congestion and take one of many bike trails wherever you need to go. Be sure to have a good bike lock to secure your bike at the venue.
Some of the best bike trails for getting around L.A. and neighboring communities include:
- A. River Path
- Rio Hondo Path
- Gabriel River Path
- San Fernando Road Bike Path
- Santa Clara River Trail
- Arroyo Simi Bike Path
- Pacific Electric Inland Empire Trail
