Ride Report. Malibu – Encinal – Mulholland – Pacific Coast Highway (PCH)
49.4 miles 3:07 moving time, 3,724 ft elevation.
I carpooled with Joel. We were running late. Thanks to all the guys that waited up for us. We started at a park across the street from Pepperdine University, at PCH and Maliby Canyon Rd.
Unlike the rest of the hot hot week, today was a cooler, with clouds. It was a nice change of weather.
We headed north on PCH. Took a right and went Up Up UP Encinal. Then down, then Up Up Up Encinal some more. Left (more like U-turn) at Mulholland. Rode Mulholland across and down back to PCH. This is one of my favorite descents. Lynda, Steve, Gregg stopped and played with the camel. We rode north on PCH a little to Neptune’s Nest, which had water and restrooms. I used both. We rolled across the street and watched the surfers. Waves were pretty flat, I thought. Rode back along PCH. Lots of fast traffic, but there is a wide shoulder.
Steve, Margot, Steve, Phil, GT, Michel, Rich, Bill (?sorry), Lynda, Gregg, Dino. Not pictured me and Joel.
North on PCH. Foggy.
