Malibu (California) Road Camp

When: March 2nd to 10th, 2019

Where: Malibu, California

 

We rode in one of the best places I’ve been on this planet. From the famous Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) to Mulholland Drive, Malibu offers you incredible roads, huge climbs, and the scenery puts you away every corner. The whole camp took place in the beautiful Malibu hills, where the rich and famous live and enjoy the outdoors. Here's a glimpse at our 2019 experience: 

 

We enjoyed a professional service and world class coaching during this camp.  We were lodged in a nice house with all necessary amenities. Meals were prepared and served at the lodging place.
