Dirt Mulholland route suggestions heading West?
Looking for some suggestions on where to go heading West on Mulholland. Will be starting out by climbing Sully Ridge, then going through Bent Arrow then back onto Mulholland. Just not sure where to go after The Hub. Target zone is Topanga area or somewhere near there. I looked at the map and it's an inter twinning mess of roads and trails, so please help.
Screw you guys, I'm going out for a ride now...
Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!
If you're concerned about the safety of riding up Topanga Canyon Blvd (ie paved road), it actually has a decent shoulder in both directions NORTH of where Abuelita's, Inn of the Seventh Ray, and Hidden Treasures are on those maps, all the way over the crest and down into the San Fernando valley.

However, as you head SOUTH from that area on Topanga Canyon Blvd toward PCH, the shoulder can be virtually non-existent on the twisty narrow sections, raising the likelihood of a motorist hitting a cyclist.
best rides are
1) park car riviera something road just west of mandeville and just off sunset
2) ride bike a little west and up capri
3) ride up sullivan fire road until you hit dirt mullholland
4) go down widow maker or bent arrow
5) get to the hub
6) go down wil rogers backbone half way
7) go down jdrop
8) go up capri a bit and then down squirrel cage
9) go down horse trail
will drop you off right at your car.
Other good ride is
1) park at queensferry, ride up bayliss then up westridge
2) go down first crack
3) go up sullivan canyon
4) go down upper jedi lower jedi
5) go down squirrel cage
6) up queensferry back to car
those are the only 2 rides that are worth it in the SM mountains for me at least.
Ride 1 has quite a lot of vertical though, i think its about 3500 feet of climbing.
Ride 2 is more reasonable with i think about 1800 feet of climbing.
