About the Author
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
Via Del Monte is a lightly traveled residential street and features a wide shoulder for much of the climb. Your best views initially will be on your right. Between a few of the homes you’ll be able to see the beach extending from Torrance through Redondo and Hermosa Beaches up to Manhattan Beach. On clear days you’ll be able to see across the bay to the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu.
Shortly after the climb’s only switchback, the gradient will gently roll off to a flat approximately 200 yards long. The north side of the street features a steep hillside and is devoid of homes; this is the perfect spot to pull over and take one of the best views in the area. To the northeast you’ll see the San Gabriel Mountains, while to northwest you’ll take in a much better view of the Santa Monica Mountains and the coastline of Malibu clear to Point Dume.

I also find it irresponsible that they list the Rose Bowl ride with no mention of the charged atmosphere surrounding it on the weekends (and conflicts with law enforcement). Ditto for Mandeville Canyon. I'd certainly want to know these things if I weren't an experienced Los Angeles rider. It seems more important than pages of addresses (mostly ex-addresses) of stars.
