Mulholland Double Century • Description

The Mulholland Double Century is a difficult ride in the Santa Monica Mountains and some of the surrounding areas. Part of the course overlaps with the Mulholland Challenge, which is held on the same day.
The ride starts in Agoura Hills and descends via Las Virgenes/Malibu Canyon into Malibu. After a few miles south along the ocean, the first climb winds up Topanga Canyon and Old Topanga Canyon. The course then continues on Mulholland Highway, Little Sycamore Canyon, and Cotharin Road.
The descent on Deer Creek Road offers an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. From here the course leads north on Pacific Coast Highway. Then it follows a big loop, visiting several cities and climbing Potrero Road, Grimes Canyon, and Balcom Canyon.
After returning south on Pacific Coast Highway, the longest climb of the day leads up Decker Canyon, which eventually turns into Mulholland Highway. The last big climb winds up Piuma Road, followed by a descent down Stunt Road, and a few flat miles back to Agoura Hills.

Mulholland Double Century • Personal Notes

I ran into Jim M. from San Diego, Tony M. from Cherry Valley, and John U. from the Renegades (who rode the century).
After about 25 miles a spoke of my back wheel broke. I opened the brake caliper, and Paul K. from Sunland helped me true the wheel as good as possible. During the final 25 miles I encountered another challenge. Since the batteries of my light lost their charge, I had to ride with the emergency LED light instead of the bright HID light.
