Welcome Cycling/Endurance Media Publications
Media Day Ride - Friday, June 3rd @ 10:00AM
Please confirm your attendance for Media Day Events.
Every time I tell someone that I live in Los Angeles, they ask how the hell I can train in a town known only for traffic and movie stars. The truth is that I’ve ridden all over the world, and I can’t say LA is the very best, but it’s part of a 20-way tie for a climber like me. Just north of the city, you’ve got the Pacific Coast Highway with the ocean on one side and a ridge of mountains on the other. There are tons of tiny roads up and down that ridge, with Mulholland on top: this twisty, beautiful road where they film every car commercial. You can climb around that ridge for days and never hit the same road twice. SoCal doesn’t have a big Gran Fondo yet, so I thought that the Malibu Gran Cookie Dough would be a fun way to show off my home roads and help LA get the reputation it deserves as a cycling destination.
We've put in the work to make a unique event with a great story, and we need your help to get the word out so we can compete with the other major Gran Fondos. Phil thought that a media ride would be a good opportunity to give you a taste of what we're offering (literally and figuratively), for you to share with your audience.
