 Grand Theft Auto V is set to be released on September 17; it'll be set in Los Santos, a fictionalized Southern California, and we've already taken a look at many of the real-life locations that'll show up in the game in one form or another (Downtown bridges, Westwood condos, the Beverly Center). Now PlayStation Access (via Kotaku) has sent some poor bastard on a bike trip to photograph some of those locations--he starts with Venice Beach and ends up at Griffith Observatory over the course of a day. The British fellow is clearly not used to American-style sprawl--he mistakes Century City's towers for Downtown's and marvels at the long journey from Venice to Brentwood (on a bike, but still). Which really just makes the whole trip more impressive.
