    LA Biking Info

    I will be attending a conference near the USC area. I would like to rent a bike while I'm out there. If need be I'll rent a car.

    What restaurants, bars, sights should I visit?
    Where can I rent a bike?
    Where are some easy trails close by?
    Where are some difficult/epic trails close by?

    Thanks

    USC? Bring kevlar body armor just to get out of the area, if you got legs hills ahead you will need lots of luck among the traffic so good luck!

    basically you are near the ghetto and will have to travel at least 30 minutes to a trail......look at the Pasadena area bike shops

    You had better count on renting a car to get any decent riding.
    To the North, you have the San Gabriel mountains, to the West you have the Santa Monica mountains, to the East in Orange County, you have the Santa Ana Mountains, and to the South, Palos Verdes.

    Not sure about rentals, but you might try asking around at these stores:
