Every Tuesday, The Source will highlight some of the many adventures Angelenos have with their bikes. So don’t forget to take your camera with you before you start pedaling throughout Los Angeles!

For this week’s featured cycling adventure, we feature Jonathan and his fellow group of riders. With a total of 15 cyclists, the group began their journey from La Brea and Rodeo, and from there ventured south to Palos Verdes for a fun climb. During the journey south, the group faced cold and tough headwinds, forcing them to make a stop at Hermosa Pier for a regroup.

After regrouping, the journey continued for the 15 riders, and soon they found themselves climbing the beautiful hills of Palos Verdes, where at one point they stopped to take the amazing photo above onlooking the Pacific Ocean from a cliff. The journey was in total distance, a grand 66 miles, and even with strong winds and cold temperatures, Jonathan states, “the view at Palos Verdes was well worth the mission.”

Great ride Jonathan and thank you for sharing your adventure!
