It's a smooth ride for bicyclists who are heading from the Hermosa Beach Strand to Marina Way in Redondo Beach - and now it's one of the country's best.

People For Bikes, a national organization advocating for safe bike riding, has named the new Redondo Beach pathway one of the top ten best new bike lanes in the country for 2015.

The organization, calling the lanes "gorgeous," lauded the new pathway for its "low-stress access" to a popular beach area, and for making bike riding "a viable alternative" to car traffic.

Thanks to the Palos Verdes Land Conservancy, more than 1,600 acres of open space have been preserved on the PV Peninsula for use as undeveloped open space for historical, educational, ecological, recreational, and scenic purposes.

Hills-Backyards-SM.jpgThe Palos Verdes Peninsula is known for its spectacular panoramic and blufftop ocean views. But it's also home to many hidden places, woodsy paradises of privacy and scenery. The Linden H. Chandler Preserve is one such gem.

Located in a somewhat isolated area behind and below Dapplegray Elementary School in Rolling Hills Estates, the preserve, once a farm, offers an easy to moderate 0.9-mile loop trail that can be broken up into shorter walks/hikes. When you reach the top of the upward slope that greets you shortly after embarking on the trail, you can see for miles on a clear day.

From atop the same hill, which has a few pathways traversing it, you'll also catch glimpses of the Rolling Hills Country Club golf course and Empty Saddle Club.
