Epic Rides; Mullholland Highway

It’s a bit of a stretch to call Mulholland Highway an Epic ride it’s more of a storied ride due its name and notoriety. Not to be confused with Mulholland Drive which runs through Hollywood, the Highway is the Western end which runs from Leo Carrillo State Beach on Pacific Coast Highway to Calabasas in the San Fernando Valley. I had been eyeing up riding it from end to end as part of a longer ride as the Highway itself is only 37 or so miles long. I have ridden it all but never in one go and after some messing around on Strava Routes I had mapped a 100 mile ride. This would also let me chalk up my second Ultra Marathon Cycling Association (USMA) Year Rounder ride.
