'The Original Cookie Fondo'

In Phil Gaimon’s years as a pro cyclist, every time he mentioned that he lived in Los Angeles, people would ask how he could train in a town known only for traffic and movie stars.

Now that he’s retired, Phil’s Fondo is his answer to that question: a chance to show off the great climbs, ocean air, and perfect weather, to help Los Angeles get the reputation it deserves as a world-class cycling destination. Phil designed the courses himself, collected rider gifts from his favorite sponsors, and thanks to our fundraising partners, Chef’s Cycle and No Kid Hungry, we’ll have celebrity chefs and Michelin stars providing lunch at the expo, post-ride dinner, and cookies all weekend, for an LA food experience that would be worth the price of registration by itself. Pro teams have held their training camps in Malibu for years. Here's your chance to find out why.

My two favorite things are climbing mountains and eating cookies. Thanks to the beauty of Malibu and the taste of Jeff Mahin’s M Street Kitchen, I’m proud to offer you the very best of both.”
