For cyclists, Los Angeles is still the wild west. Our city is dominated by cars, and if a cyclist ventures out without a proper route prepared, the chances of ending up frantically peddling down a bus lane with fingers crossed while uttering a Hail Mary are high. That is to say, biking here can be treacherous. Don't let this stop you. It's totally possible to cycle L.A., and with gas prices now at $4.25 a gallon, it's the most financially efficient option as well. Mother nature will also thank you--look, you just did your green thing for Earth Day, which is Friday, btw.

This trip will take about an hour and a half, and is the best route for getting from Echo Park to the beach:
