Bronson Caves

Sunday, April 29, 2018

It’s been two and a half years since we have ridden this one and I don’t know why because there is no more unique ride in the Los Angeles area. We get to ride entirely around the iconic Hollywood reservoir, explore a cave right in the heart of the city and visit the Griffith Park Observatory – all in 40 miles. Only the long route does all that, but all routes go to the caves. The short goes directly there and back, passing through Hollywood (an iconic area of Los Angeles we don’t often ride). The Medium gets to the caves, but first takes a trip around Lake Hollywood and up to the overlook where you get a nice view of the lake and also the Hollywood sign. This includes a couple of short but rather steep climbs. It then heads to Griffith Park for lunch before returning. The long is the same as the medium, but adds a climb up to Mulholland before heading to Lake Hollywood and after viewing the caves, it climbs up to the Observatory in Griffith Park for lunch. This adds two more classic LA locales to the ride. You won’t get a much more LA experience than this ride. But the caves are the highlight of the day. Even if you have never been there  I just about guarantee you have seen them. They are a very popular film location and have appeared in many TV shows and commercials. So be sure to join us. How often can you combine spelunking and cycling? 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. (Long 40 mi and 3200 ft, Medium 26 mi and 1600 ft, Short 19 mi and 900 ft)
