Calabasas is city in the Santa Monica mountains close to Zuma Beach in Malibu and Pepperdine University. Popular with bicycle riders, Las Virgenes exits Interstate 101, heads west where it becomes County Highway N1, and turns into Malibu Canyon Road. The windy, trafficked road is one of the main highways connecting Calabasas with the beach. If you drive this road in a car or ride it on a bike, extreme caution is the best advice as the road takes turns and often is not very wide.
The City of Calabasas has held meetings to come up with a bicycle plan. Calabasas Bicycle Advisory Group (CBAG) was organized for the development of the City's Bicycle master plan to discuss a variety of topics, including: The state of bicycling within the City, City Bicycle facilities, and input and guidance in the development of the Master Plan. Shortly after the group held its first meeting in 2010, three bicyclists were hit and injured in Calabasas by an 81 year old woman turning into their lane of traffic.
Bicycle riding is a wonderful sports activity, and many use it to commute to and from work or school. If you seek information on what the City of Calabasas is doing to create a master plan, visit the web for information: cityofcalabasas.com
