Carlsbad Day 2 Bike MS Challenge

The Catalina Coastal Climber
On this route, you’ll be challenged with paved and dirt climbs but breathtaking views that are worth the pain. The only cars you’ll encounter will be golf carts and the trails are generally pretty sparse with people; you will definitely see some wildlife, with a good chance of buffalo sightings. At the top of the coastal climbs, you’ll hear the barking of sea lions swimming in the oceans below.

A beautiful 20-mile beginner/intermediate ride around Westlake Village and Agoura Hills. You’ll see lovely sights on Lakeside Drive and Mulholland Hwy, including a segment with views of Malibu Lake and extravagant neighborhood homes.
