So Many Good Motorcycle Roads near L.A.
Lately I've been thinking about how lucky I am to live in an area with decent access to so many great motorcycle roads. There have been days where I've taken in the ocean air while riding Pacific Coast Highway in the morning, then later in the afternoon found myself smelling the sweet pines riding Angeles Crest Highway in the Angeles National Forest. To the south are the incredible roads of eastern Orange and San Diego counties, including the (locally) legendary Palomar Mountain Road. To the north, as I recently discovered, are such gems as highway 33 north of Ojai and my favorite, Cerro Noroeste.
Any rider living in L.A. is not that far from any of these incredible roads. Of course getting through the traffic can be tough sometimes, but once past the hordes and into the surprisingly serene environments of these roads, riding is all smiles.
