Our world-class event, held in the beautiful and iconic city of Malibu, California, is an exclusive weekend designed to attract cyclists from around the world, showcasing our magnificent landscape and ideal early Spring weather.
Ride! like the pros and experience two completely different courses in a single weekend, each offering unique terrain, vistas and challenges: a 151km Gran Fondo traversing a balanced mix of rolling farmland, fast and scenic coastline, and an epic climb to the finish in the Santa Monica Mountains; and a 20km Time Trial point to point course along the famous Pacific Coast Highway.
Celebrate your accomplishment with fellow athletes. An integral part of the cycling experience happens off the bike, when we gather together and share as a community over fine food and beverages. The Malibu Gran Fondo weekend provides several culinary opportunities for indulging with your peers.
Upgrade your experience and treat yourself to luxury accomodations just steps away from the start and finish of your big Ride! From freshly brewed coffee in the morning to evening receptions on the terrace, it's all happening at the Four Seasons, Westlake Village.
