Biking the LA River

Deepest Congo? No, Los Angeles River. I have to admit that this is the only photo that looks like this.
Hillel Aron has a story in LA Weekly about his bike ride along the Los Angeles River. It's thoroughly entertaining. I plotted the places he mentioned on a couple of Google Maps (because even Google has limits).
Part 1
Part 2

Hillel's route leads past a number of LA landmarks, and following along ties them to the river and so to each other, so it doesn't seem like such a vast, unknowable city anymore.

He biked it? That implies that it's not navigable even in a kayak?
So why is it called a river (and not e.g. a drain)?
