Serious Cycling Presents the Malibu Gran Fondo, The Complete Cycling Experience, a celebration of cycling, fine dining and breathtaking scenery on March 5-6, 2016.
This world-class event, held in the beautiful and iconic city of Malibu, California, is an exclusive weekend designed to attract cyclists from around the world, showcasing the magnificent Southern California landscape and ideal early spring weather.
In partnering with Assos, Sarto, Four Seasons Westlake and Vintage Grocers, the Malibu Gran Fondo delivers a high-end experience that aligns with those who train regularly, enjoy participating in challenging events and demand something better than what is out there.
Participants will Ride! The Omnium like the pros for cumulative time and experience two completely different courses in a single weekend, each offering unique terrain, vistas and challenges: a 151km Gran Fondo on day one, traversing a balanced mix of rolling farmland, fast and scenic coastline, with an epic climb to the finish in the Santa Monica Mountains; and a 20km Time Trial on day two, covering a point to point course along the famous Pacific Coast Highway.
An epic weekend of cycling calls for a proper celebration. The Malibu Gran Fondo weekend provides several culinary opportunities to celebrate as a community over fine food and beverages. Not just ordinary event fare – farm fresh, whole food nutrition to provide participants with the cleanest burning fuel possible on and off the course – real food for real athletes.
Participants can also upgrade to the Complete Cycling Experience Weekend Package, which includes luxury accommodations at the host hotel, Four Seasons Westlake, just steps away from the start and finish of the Ride! From freshly brewed coffee in the morning to evening receptions on the terrace, exclusive event packages for participants have been created with the traveling cyclist in mind.
Offering pro level on course support, gourmet rest stops, catered receptions, concierge services, post ride massage, bike wash and valet, the Malibu Gran Fondo is the Complete Cycling Experience.

EAT, SLEEP, RIDE!
