Santa Monica to Palos Verdes Switchbacks and back
62 miles – 2295 ft elevation gain
I’ve been exploring the Santa Monica area on my bike for the last year and a half and felt it was time to share the amazing rides California has to offer. If you want to join Cynergy Cycles on any of these rides or want more information, come see us and we will be happy to help!
The ride from Santa Monica to Palos Verdes offers some of the best ocean views in the area, bike paths almost the entire way and some nice elevation gain. Leaving Santa Monica, you will follow the bike path by the ocean for approximately 20 miles. This is a great time to get warmed up and ready for the climbs ahead. Here you will ride through Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, and all the way to Redondo beach before hitting the hills.
