Walk:
I wanted to know what sort of roads LA had to offer for training. My previous strolls had suggested there was some really short sharp bastards, but how short and sharp were they?

I predominately walked around the hills near Silver Lake/Echo Park/Los Feliz, and found a few that if joined into a loop would be absolutely devastating.

In reverse order of what I consider to be easiest to hardest:

Sunset St - 100m @ 18%

Effie Pl - 85m @ 19%

Baxter St - 200m @ 18%

Earl St - 180m long @ 23%

Effie St - 100m @ 27%

And just for giggles, there was the set of stairs I found and ran:

Landa St Stairs - 150m @ 46%

Tour de Burbs L.A. style looks like it could be rad.
