It almost seems as if it was a treat or even something of a challenge to ride over to the Valley and back. It doesn’t seem like such a big deal to us today, but these routes were first formed in those primeval days of the club when all routes were new and the San Fernando Valley was a worthy destination. The long and the medium both go over to the Valley and back, so they do involve at least two moderate climbs going over and back. The long returns via Topanga Canyon to the coast and back through Santa Monica while the medium comes back over Sepulveda. Back in the olden days, there were members who weren’t willing to take on the challenge of traveling to the Valley and for them two short routes were provided. Both tour West Los Angeles – one with more hills than the other. So as we ride today, try to hearken back to the 1950s when the Valley was still developing and was a new and exciting place to ride. It might make the ride more interesting.  START: THE “CORNER”, Olympic Blvd, 1 block west of La Cienega in Beverly Hills.  From the Santa Monica Frwy (10), off and north La Cienega 1˝ miles, L – Olympic 1 block to R- Le Doux.
