The Express Way – 5.59 – Malibu

Getting close to Mexico! 4 more days riding but the heat (44C yesterday!), wind and sand storms are hard going on the bike!! We got to Malibu to be met by wonderful Canadian friends, and a few hours off to see Hollywood just now.

We’re melting in Malibu!!! Cycling a big journey can be challenging at any time, but we never expected the temperature to reach 44 degrees Celsius (111 Fahrenheit) on this trip. We can drink the peanut butter and the toiletries are running everywhere. We’ve taken to sleeping outside as it’s 28 degrees overnight. I guess the Malibu beach is as good a place as any in these temperatures.

Previous stage – Leo Carrillo State Beach Next stage – Long Beach
