RouteCommentBCI Action
m2Riding downhill on Newport Coast towards Bonita Canyon (at mile 13.8) is an experience in terror and there's no good reason to route our riders on this stretch. The bike lane vanishes exactly at the point where double right turn lanes steer cars to the freeway onramps. Cars are coming in surges at over 65 mph downhill.This stretch appears on several sheets. There are many safe solutions to navigate this section of roadway on a bicycle including stopping in the bike land ahead of the freeway entrance and waiting for a gap in down-bound traffic before proceeding. That said, I will look at options.

Sun Sep 06, 2015 8:30 AM - Remote Ride with LA Wheelmen

BRONSON CAVES
(Long 40 - 3000 feet,
Medium 26 -2400 feet,
Short 19 - 900 feet) Today we hope to be hosting the Bicycle Club of Irvine. We want to show them some unique parts of Los Angeles they don't see riding in Orange County most of the time. What better place to go than some caves found right in the heart of LA - Bronson Caves. All routes go to the caves. The short goes directly there and back, passing through Hollywood (something else BCI riders probably don't often see.) The Med. gets to the caves, but first takes a trip around Lake Hollywood and up to the overlook - also something BCI riders might not be familiar with. This includes a couple of short but rather steep climbs. It then heads to Griffith Park for lunch before returning. The long is the same as the medium, but adds a climb up to Mulholland before heading to Lake Hollywood and after viewing the caves, it climbs up to the Observatory in Griffith Park for lunch. This adds two more classic LA locales for our guests to experience. But the caves are still the highlight of the day. Even if you have never been there I just about guarantee you have seen them. They are a very popular film location and have appeared in many TV shows and commercials. So be sure to join us. How often can you combine spelunking and cycling - "Cyclolunking."
Location: START: THE CORNER@, Olympic Blvd, 1 block west of La Cienega in Beverly Hills. From the Santa Monica Frwy (10), off & north La Cienega 12 miles, L - Olympic 1 block to R - Le Doux.
