Day 1 - GRANFONDO Pro Experience

151 kilometers with 1,768 meters of elevation gain

The weekend begins with a 151km timed, mass start GRANFONDO event on Saturday, with the start and finish at the world renowned and luxurious Four Seasons Hotel in the heart of Westlake Village.  The course offers up a balanced mix of rolling farmlands, flat and scenic Southern California Coastline and an epic climb with panoramic vistas atop the Santa Monica Mountains.

3 fully stocked, gourmet rest stops at 31km, 77km and 119km.  10 Speed Coffee will be on course for a final "hit" before the last climb, with additional water available at 134km.

The final miles of the GRANFONDO offer participants the added challenge of riding for King and Queen of the Mountain (KOM/QOM) times as they push toward the summit finish. 

The clock stops at the top of the mountain so riders can enjoy a neutralized descent back to a post ride luncheon in the gardens of the Four Seasons.

Day 2 -  Pro Experience Time Trial or Recovery Ride

20 kilometers with 172 meters of elevation gain

You can decide whether to seal the deal with the Race of Truth or flush out your legs from the previous day's effort!  Sunday’s 20km time trial course is point to point and will head due north on the world-famous Pacific Coast Highway, starting from Vintage Grocers, located at the newly remodeled Trancas Country Market in Malibu.  The course is rolling but fast and will test your legs following Saturday's 151k Gran Fondo.  Aero and non aero categories available.  Or you can opt for our 40k Group Recovery Ride and take in more of the scenery - either way, get out of bed, get on your bike, and revel in your accomplishment at the Awards Celebration.

Social Experience Gran Fondo Medium Route

106 kilometers with 1300 meters of elevation gain

For those who want the Complete Cycling Experience with a few less miles, there will be an option to omit the 41k farmland loop.  This route still offers fast and scenic coastline followed by an epic climb to the summit finish, however, participants who opt for the medium route (and/or recovery ride) will not be considered for the KOM/QOM or Overall Omnium Awards.  

2 fully stocked, gourmet rest stops at 31km and 72km.  10 Speed Coffee will be on course for a final "hit" before the last climb, with additional water available at 86km.

After summiting the last climb, riders can enjoy a neutralized descent back to a post ride luncheon in the gardens of the Four Seasons.
