LA

Bike To Venice Beach From Echo Park

Story courtesy of City's Best.

By Katie Bain

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:
