Lots of folks use these hills to ride. You can’t go “off road” here, it’s against the law to mountain bike or cycle the horse and hiking trails, but there’s plenty of busted up service road to traverse. Mostly I see weekend warriors and cat.4’s training, but also older guys who might be riding to work at a restaurant over the hill.
The Bicycle Mart
Bill’s got hundreds of bikes in storage, each of ‘em tells a bit of LA cycling lore. He’s got old Coors and Motorola team rigs and can tell you the history of the famed Montrose Ride. Classic crusty shop, full of dust and memories and spare tubes. Folks like to bitch about The Mart, but it’s packed with legend and worth listening to a story or two.
