Best Bike Rides Los Angeles offers descriptions of forty- five rides in the L.A. region, including twenty- three for road bikes and twenty- two for mountain bikes. The area of coverage is a rough 25-mile radius around central (downtown) L.A., skewed a bit toward the west. Because of its heavy urbanization, L.A. lacks distinct geographic regions. There are rivers, valleys, hills, mountains, and other enclaves; but the extensive development has led them to effectively merge into one another, or be “paved over.” Using area codes, this guide divides L.A. into four regions: central and southeast, north and northwest, northeast, and west and southwest.
