Distance: 27 miles and 1200 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)
Basically the route heads downtown and back, but first before we leave Culver City we can take an optional trip up to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook (the sharp peak at mile 3 on the profile). The view up there is very nice, but it is a steep climb. The route is up and back so you can skip it if you please. We then continue our way downtown with a ride through the USC campus. Say hello to Tommy Trojan. Downtown we pass the Crypto.com Arena, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, and the new Grand Park. We then head back west. Along the way we will pass some classic LA homes along 4th and 5th Streets. We end with a brief ride on the Ballona Creek Trail back to the park and lunch.
