But it is on a bicycle that the entire park really opens up for exploration. By bike you can see and do more in Griffith Park than by car or foot. Most of the routes described are on roads with bike lanes or are closed to traffic, but there are many other roads that could potentially be explored. In my opinion, this makes the park one of the best places to cycle in Los Angeles.
Discover Los Angeles
BlacklistLA is a running group that discovers the city every Monday at 10 p.m. The group’s first meeting was at LACMA’s Urban Light in 2013, with the intention of discovering street art in Los Angeles. The name comes from the fact that street art is typically “blacklisted” from traditional galleries and viewed as graffiti or vandalism. BlacklistLA aims to provide a safe and energetic environment where people feel empowered to discover the streets of Los Angeles in a way that’s never been done before. The group has run around Downtown L.A., Hollywood, Koreatown, Culver City, Echo Park and continues to explore more of the city. Newly created by BlacklistLA is the “MetroRun,” exploring the city through Metro’s subway lines. See their website for event dates.
