In 2007 Menasha Ridge Press published Patrick’s first book, Bicycling Los Angeles County

In 2007 Menasha Ridge Press published Patrick’s first book, Bicycling Los Angeles County. Despite the number of cycling guide books devoted to Los Angeles, Bicycling Los Angeles County quickly rose to the top of the heap for several reasons: It was the first road cycling guide book to use GPS technology to map routes as well as the first to include group rides-a central part of road cycling culture.

  • It's ok. Too many of the "rides" are "star home tours" or bike paths that are pretty obvious (like Santa Monica bike path) and could be found online. Also, a substantial number of the rides are on surface streets within dense parts of Los Angeles ("sights of downtown", "Hollywood landmarks"). It lists Santa Fe Dam but neglects to mention how dangerously hot it can be for part of the year and only gives a passing "isn't known for its crystal clear air" instead of mentioning it as a serious potential health hazard.

    I also find it irresponsible that they list the Rose Bowl ride with no mention of the charged atmosphere surrounding it on the weekends (and conflicts with law enforcement). Ditto for Mandeville Canyon. I'd certainly want to know these things if I weren't an experienced Los Angeles rider. It seems more important than pages of addresses (mostly ex-addresses) of stars.

  • Great guide for area

  • This is an excellent product for those who like to discover new routes (and drive to get there). I am a beginner cyclist so, I was able to find a couple good routes near my house.

  • This book has a tremendous cross-section of rides that will be of real use to anyone either taking up road biking for the first time or coming to L.A. from another place. The routes span the full range from easy beach bike-paths and sight-seeing routes to serious half-day (or more) mountain training rides. It is thus unlikely that any purchaser will be interested in doing all of the 40 rides in the book (I've done just over half at this point and have identified another half-dozen I plan to tackle by the end of this summer), but there are enough rides suitable for any skill level to justify the purchase price. Although the book is now several years old, I've found the information on road conditions and traffic to still be generally accurate. The elevation profiles and ride descriptions are very helpful. The only reason I did not give the book five stars is the lack of "cue sheets" for the rides; the book's maps are reasonably helpful, but I've found it necessary to consult more detailed maps (e.g., the Thomas guides or Google maps) before setting out on several of the rides (particularly those with multiple turns in urban areas) to be sure that I really could follow the route.
