The City of Malibu will cut the ribbon on the PCH Bike Route Improvements Project and Malibu’s first-ever bike lane on April 29 at 10 a.m. City Councilmembers will be joined by Caltrans and Metro officials, City Commissioners and the L.A. County Bike Coalition to watch local cyclists ride their bikes through the ribbon on the bike lane, located on a two-mile stretch of PCH at Zuma Beach.

The project improves the existing bike route, which is a route for mixed vehicle and bicycle traffic marked by a sign, and creates a six-foot wide bike lane that will be separate from traffic for bikes only, marked by white road stripes. In order to increase distance between parked vehicles and cyclists, the shoulder in that section of highway has been widened.

Caltrans’ Highway Safety Improvement Program, L.A. County Measure R, City general fund and Federal Transportation Equity Act funded the project.

The ceremony will take place in the Zuma Beach parking lot, locate at PCH and Morning View Dr. For more information, visit the City of Malibu website.
