WE-ride, Sunday, June 9 - Santa Monica Mountains (from Agoura Hills)

 

As summer approaches, it’s enjoyable to start riding closer to the coast. This Sunday, take on some classic climbs and descents in the Santa Monica Mountains, starting from Reyes Adobe park in Agoura Hills. Our route offers two options: either climbing to the mountains’ crest, descending on the western end of Mulholland Drive, then riding a few miles east along the coast to return via Latigo Canyon, a classic and rigorous climb. A shorter option takes the same route to the coast, then returns via Encinal Canyon, equally striking but shorter by a few miles and a few hundred feet of climbing. 

 

Either way, be sure to fill your water bottles at Leo Carillo campground, just before we reach the coast, so you have water for the long climb back!

 

Both routes offer the option of stopping for lunch in Cornell at Old Place, at the bottom of the classic Mulholland Highway “Rock Store” descent (which is closed to automobiles but open again for cyclists). 

Start Time: 8:00 AM on Sunday, June 9, at Reyes Adobe Park in Agoura Hills (https://maps.app.goo.gl/QDFeYate1jBZPDo6Awhich offers parking and restrooms.
