Twin Peaks & Flying Pigs – Metric Century

Distance: 65 miles and 4700 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

This Metric Century stays with the full century for the first 43 miles and rejoins the full century for the last 20 miles. We start by heading to the coast and out to Malibu. We head inland on Malibu Canyon and then ride Mulholland Hwy over to Old Topanga. Up and over Old Topanga takes us down to New Topanga which we then climb back up and over into the Valley. On the profile below the two Topanga tops are the peaks at 32 miles and 41 miles (the first peak is the high point on Mulholland Hwy).  While the full century then makes an additional loop around the valley (and an additional climb), this metric century stops for lunch and then heads directly east across the valley where it rejoins the full century on its return. Together they make our last climb over Sepulveda and back to the start. Actually, if you follow the course, we go up Beverly Glen and down Sepulveda. Many riders may not do this, but I believe it may be required to get the miles needed for a metric century.
