Cycling Latigo Canyon, Malibu
Ride 6.9 miles gaining 1,945’ at 5.3% average grade.
The most scenic road bike climb in the Santa Monica Mountains
This is a fabulous climb through Latigo Canyon beginning from PCH. The climb averages 5.3%, but is a bit more difficult than that because of a couple of ~1/2 mile segments averaging over 7%. There is a ½ miles nearly flat section in the middle of the climb where you will be able to relax and catch your breath, look back and see the Pacific Ocean 4 miles in the distance.
The road is in pristine condition and has minimal vehicular traffic.
