Exploring Los Angeles County on a bike is an exciting challenge for both newcomers and experienced cyclists. With its vast 4,000 square miles of terrain, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the beauty and wildlife of the wetlands, take in the sea breeze in the evenings, and even make it to the beach. But what's the average temperature during a typical bike ride in Los Angeles County?The El Niño-La Niña Southern Oscillation (ENSO) has a major influence on temperature and precipitation patterns in different parts of the world. La Niña is often associated with drier than normal conditions in California, particularly in the southern part of the state.
This means that cyclists can expect mild temperatures during their rides. The Marvin Braude bicycle trail is a 22-mile path that connects the west side of Los Angeles to communities east of I-405 and south of I-10. It's a great way to explore the area and take in some of its beauty. The Ballona Creek Bike Trail is another 7.4-mile paved, car-free bike path that takes you from Culver City directly to Playa del Rey beach. Cyclists who have toured the country in 1976, and those who ride the trail today, say that they learned more about this country in 90 days than most people learn in their entire lives. Research conducted by Streets For All suggests that 66% of daily trips in Los Angeles are 5 miles or less. This means that cyclists can easily make it to El Porto, on Manhattan Beach, which is 13.4 miles away from Culver City.
