Los Angeles: 13 Miles Hosted by the Chain Gang!

13 Steep Hills with Long Climbs

Rain Cancels


Contrary to popular belief, studies show that almost no one gains more than 1.5 pounds over the holiday season. What is true however, is that almost no-one losses whatever weight they do gain during the holidays! So get ahead of the gain by burning some calories before the feast with the East Side Posse. The ride is approximately 13 miles with three climbs from Travel Town (0.71 miles, average grade 8.05%, 338 feet total ascent), up Mount Hollywood (2.45 miles, average grade 5.05%, 1034 feet total ascent), to Griffith Observatory (0.27 miles, average grade 4.66%, 134 feet total ascent) after which comes the reward of the descent past the Greek Theater.

All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have alternatives to the entire route. You will have a great bike ride. That’s a win! And remember, safety is critical. We will be following all bicycling laws and regulations as well as COVID regulations.!

Reach out with any of your questions or concerns. You really can do this.
