Malibu 'Escape Winter' Cycling Vacation

 

February 21 - 25 2018

 

Based in Westlake Village California, we'll have 3 full days of cycling enjoying the quiet roads, fabulous climbs, cool coffee shops, and exciting descents! We'll also have time to enjoy the restaurants and Thousand Oaks and Venice regions of California.

 

Who should register?

Any cycling enthusiast with a road bike, enjoys endless winding roads, and has the desire to ride 50km or more in a day.  We can cater to any ability. The region has multiple options for amount of elevation desired during the rides and we'll be sure to keep the routes appropriate to the cyclists that register.  We'll have guides and routes available to handle beginner, intermediate, and advanced cyclists.  The rides will be between 50km and 100km a day. Cyclists that love very light and courteous traffic should also consider :)
