Rancho Palos Verdes has some of the best coastal cycling in Southern California. Due to its proximity to the coast it’s usually cooler than any inland areas during the summer months. It has relatively light motor vehicle traffic and bike lanes on the busier roads.
Tedious hours spinning pedals and not going anywhere always bored me; that is until I used a program called Zwift for the first time during a trial period. Zwift is an online virtual world connecting indoor cyclists. They currently have three different courses, you don’t get to choose which course to ride but they rotate on different days of the week.
