Professional cyclist Ty Hathaway shows us that if you can get off the beaten path in Los Angeles, you can do it anywhere.

Stunning overlooks, a blanket of stars, and a rustic mountain cabin are not the hallmarks of life in L.A., but for those with a sense of adventure and air in the tires, even the City of Angeles boasts some beautiful getaway spots.
