The weather outside is delightful, why not hop on a bike and take a tour of the LA River in Atwater Village?
The map below might be about four years old (it’s from a 2006 Metro map), but until we build our own interactive Google map of the bike route, plus photos, and your favorite lookout points… it works for now!
The good news? The bike path along the LA River is a very bike-friendly route! Blue lines are deemed Class I bike paths (off-road paved bike path completely designed for bicycles). Pink lines are Class II bike lanes (on-road, one way striped bike lane), and green lines are Class III bike routes for on-road bike lanes through high-demand corridors. There was also a DIY bike path on Fletcher a couple of years ago, but we’ll have to see if that’s still up and running.
You can also check out the image below for the Los Angeles Bicycle Plan draft, which does show a (at least partial) bike lane across Fletcher and Hyperion. Green lines indicate a bike path, red a bike lane, dark blue a bike route, and light blue a bike-friendly street.
