This coming weekend marks the second edition of the Malibu Gran Fondo sponsored by Assos and Serious Cycling. It is a two day event consisting of a mass start ride on Saturday that takes in some of the best climbs in the Malibu hills. Sundays ride is a 20k time trial along the Pacific Coast Highway. Both days will have accompanying events for the families of the participants, all sure to be up to the high standards of Assos. I am signed up for the weekend, but as luck would have it, I will probably have to work both days. That being said, I will try and and participate in at least some of the events over the weekend. And, for those interested, I believe there is still availability to join the ride. Head on over to Serious Cycling to learn more. Signing up for the ride might be your only opportunity to come away with an Assos jersey with a palm tree printed on it.
