Rally up the ridges in Malibu - call it a ralibu!

Set off north from the morning cafe and warm up on some residential streets. Continue on calm streets past Sunset Blvd, and then you’ll quickly come upon a well-graffitied road that leads toward the dirt. 

Once the dirt begins, you may feel your legs complain. This is because the road is getting harder! You’ll seemingly go on forever until the ridge you are riding on connects with the ridgy network. At this point, you’ll turn and ride on long rollers, which are like miniature hills themselves.

The dirt road stays wide, but there are twists and turns that descend and increase your speed. The terrain is loose and slippery, so riding and maintaining your pace is a little trickier. There are plenty of small washouts that add a little challenge as well. 

After many rollers, there will come a point when the ocean views peak in beauty, which also aligns with the super-steep downhill. You may need to use your brakes on the downhill the entire time, especially because of the loose terrain. So be careful, but have fun! 

When the dirt ends at a gate, you’ll then continue on paved residential roads down toward the beach and the highway. Take care at the highway particularly because of the high volumes of cars and the lack of proper bike facilities. 

Soon there will be a moment to get off the highway and on the beach bike path. Once you reach that, it’s a breeze! Right until the post-ride beverage.
