The Malibu GRANFONDO is the West Coast’s Warm Winter Escape

Fondly known as “America’s 5-Star Gran Fondo” by Peloton magazine, the Malibu Gran Fondo is renown as cycling experience that aligns with those who train regularly, enjoy participating in challenging events, and demand something better than what is out there.

Southern California is famously laid-back, supportive, and open-minded. Malibu GranFondo riders are passionate and competitive, yet also encouraging and welcoming to riders new to cycling and new to the area.

This year sees the start hosted by the King Gillette Ranch, just off the legendary Mulholland Highway in the Santa Monica Mountains. The one day event features two distances including the longer CLASSICO and short MEDIO Gran Fondo.

The courses offer up a balanced mix of rolling farmlands, flat and scenic Southern California Coastline and an epic climbs with panoramic vistas atop the Santa Monica Mountains. The Malibu GRANFONDO features many miles along the Pacific Coast Highway, passing by some of the most famous beaches in the state.

For those who want the challenge with a few less miles, there is the MEDIO route.  This route still offers fast and scenic coastline followed by an epic climb to a summit finish.
