Training Camp 2019, Day 2

Day 2: Exploring

With a full day at my disposal, it was time to get out and go exploring. Today’s plan is another 3 hour easy pace ride. I rode down Venice Boulevard towards the water, then made a right on the beach’s bike path.


After riding on the path for a while, I decided to scout a route for the coming days. I needed to find a climb that was at least 10 minutes long and not too steep. Remembering the group ride I did last year I was in L.A., I tried to find a canyon road that was close to the end of the bike path. As I rode along the PCH, I saw a sign for Topanga Canyon Rd. and made a right. The road was perfect! Not too busy with traffic, and the gradient was gradual enough that I could stay seated while riding up.

Riding along the Pacific Coast Highway is awesome. Beautiful views of the ocean on one side, amazing views of the hills on the other.
