Biking in Santa Monica and the Malibu Canyons is some of the most spectacular biking on Earth. We are so fortunate to live in a place that offers a plethora of stunning and breathtaking canyons. We offer rides for both beginners and more competitive athletes. We encourage everyone to come out and join us on the weekends for fun, challenging, and amazingly beautiful local rides.

Wednesday am LaGrange Ride, 6:30am
The Mandeville moderate ride with LaGrange begins with a short warm-up around the Brentwood Country Club. After taking a right to get back on San Vicente, the group then heads north on Burlingame, across Sunset Boulevard and down to Mandeville Canyon. The initial pitch of Mandeville is reasonable, maybe 2%, but the pace is usually fast (18-20 mph). After the first mile-1/2, the road rises slightly, to about 4%, to the “white fence” which signals the approximate halfway mark of the climb. The grade is fairly steady until about the final mile when it grades up to about 6% and finishes up a [painful] 10%, 200-meter wall to the top. Depending on your effort level up the climb, you may have to concentrate on holding down your breakfast as the ride regroups and recovers for several minutes. Slower riders can catch the ride on its return down the canyon. Ride is approximately 20 miles.
Friday am LaGrange Ride, 6:30am
This EASY/recovery “Marina Lite” ride with LaGrange Cycling Club is unlike the other weekday LaGrange rides; this ride skips the warm-up lap around the Brentwood Country Club and heads immediately down San Vicente towards Ocean Avenue. Beverages at Peet’s Coffee in Brentwood (San Vicente and Gorham) afterward.
*This is a great ride for new riders! Get to know the route and meet some great people.
Alert: This ride travels through several high-traffic areas, most notably on the return up Ocean Avenue, which has a thin shoulder and lots of motorists fueled on caffeine, yammering on cell phones and many times late for work. Keep your eyes open for open car doors and head up for fast red lights! Ride is approximately 26 miles.
