Cycle Route Submitted by: Paul Hutchinson
This is a 22m cycle route taking you through the heart of Griffith Park, comprised of quiet streets, closed roads and dedicated cycle paths. Glendale (GDL) is the nearest Amtrak Station, with multiple departures connecting with Downtown LA and North Hollywood.
This ride is divided into 2 main parts. The first part is a fairly flat ride taking you along the bike path adjacent to the LA river, which eventually leads you into Griffith park.
The ride then begins to climb. You will now be riding on quiet roads (closed to vehicles), offering lots of challenging cutbacks and viewpoints over the valley. Once over the peak, the Hollywood sign is visible to your right and the road leads into a long downhill section all the way to the Observatory (still on closed roads). The steep downhill continues past the Greek Theatre and out of the park to the end of the ride.
