There's a reason pro cycling teams come from all over the world to train in this area, and there's an even better reason why many pro cyclists choose to live here after they retire. With only 25 annual days of precipitation, 285 days of sun, an average July high of 82 and average January low of 47 our climate virtually guarantees perfect year round riding. Sure, it can get a little toasty up in the mountains during the summer and there's the chance of a rainy day, but statistically you should be pretty comfortable. Don't worry, we'll make sure you have sunscreen and plenty of water. We're not insane.

The Santa Monica Mountains are a cycling paradise. There are endless paved roads, hundreds of miles of fire road and single track, sweeping ocean vistas, thousands of feet of climbing and descending that will have you grinning in pain and joy.
