Three guys who know where to ride in Los Angeles better than anyone, Steve Messer, Jim Hasenauer and Mark Langton, have put together a comprehensive 334-page guide to 60 of their favorite rides titles Where to Bike, Los Angeles Mountain Biking. Every ride gets its own chapter and the authors explain how to get to the trailhead, what to expect during the ride and in some cases, where to fuel up after your adventure. The ride information includes distance, elevation change, max elevation, suggested rider ability and even links you to other ride suggestions. You also get an in-depth description on what the ride experience is all about and of course, a detailed map of every ride.
