Eyes on the Street: Malibu’s First Bike Lane – on PCH along Zuma Beach

The city of Malibu recently completed its first-ever bike lane, officially called the Pacific Coast Highway Bike Route Improvement Project. The new 7-mile long facility is on eastbound Pacific Coast Highway from Busch Drive (near Zuma Beach) to the city's western border, near Leo Carrillo State Beach.

Though Malibu's PCH has, like many scenic coastal streets, long been popular with bicyclists, the city's attention to cyclist safety has been a long time coming. A 2013 Malibu City report called for 21 miles of bike lanes - for the entire length of PCH through the city. The current bike lane project included repaving, striping, and intersection and median modifications. Project funding came from Metro, Caltrans, and the city of Malibu.

The public is invited to a grand opening and ribbon-cutting next week. The festivities take place Wednesday, April 29, at 10 a.m. at PCH and Morning View Drive - at Zuma Beach.
