The Cookie Fondo Experience
We've added another whole day of goodness for 2018, so here are the highlights to look forward to:
| Saturday, October 27th |
Saturday, Oct 27 - 7:00A Cookie Fondo Kickoff!
If one day of cookies and climbs won't be enough, you can sign up for both days, with two route options for Saturday of 35 and 55 miles, to cover the climbs we can't get to on Sunday's main event. The routes are shorter but still challenging, and minimal overlap with Sunday's routes.
Saturday, Oct 27 -9:00A Sponsor Expo/Packet Pickup
If you're only joining us on Sunday, come pick up your ride packet and gift bag, and then tour the expo to check out our fine collection of sponsors.
Saturday, Oct 27 - 1:00P Meet and the Pros Q&A, and Autograph/Book Signing
Phil and the other pros will be going too fast for most of our guests to chat with them during the ride, so now's your chance!
Saturday, Oct 27 | Sponsor Presentations
Check your race packet for a gift card and a special offer from Cookie Fondo Partners & sponsors.
Saturday, Oct 27 | Cookie+KOM Collection by Castelli
Don't forget your kit from Castelli! Fun design, Italian quality, and possibly the greatest socks ever made.
Saturday, Oct 27 | VIP Dinner & Special Guests
Schmooze with the pros over a delicious dinner at Pedaler's Fork.
| Sunday, October 28th |
Sunday, Oct 28 - 7:00A Registration Opens
If you can't make it to early rider check in/packet pickup Saturday, get there early to beat the lines, but we'll take care of you. Illy Coffee available at 7:00A.
Sunday, Oct 28 - 7:30A - Ride! Eat Cookies! Repeat!
We've worked all year to bring a ton of fun activities and added value for riders, but the ride the main reason you're here, and it won't disappoint. Suffer on Malibu's tough climbs, and recover with fun descents and breathtaking ocean views, fueled by Clif products, fresh fruits and gourmet cookies from Chef Jeff Mahin.
Sunday, Oct 28 - 11:00A | Meal Service Begins
The first finishers can start chowing down, with literally some of the top cookie talent in the world, courtesy of Chef's Cycle and No Kid Hungry. Hope you didn't fill up on cookies!
Sunday, Oct 28 - CLIF Bar Stop with Illy Coffee
Clif bar wanted to provide more than energy bars and drink mix, so they're hosting a luxurious rest stop for you, right by the beach. Soak up some fresh air, put your feet up, have a snack, and enjoy an iced or espresso from Illy. We know that folks like to skip rest stops sometimes, but DON'T MISS THIS ONE!
Sunday, Oct 28 - Hosted Aid Stations by Local Bike Shops
Have a little fun at the rest stops! Get to know some of your local bike shops, who jumped at the chance to show their fun side at Phil's Fondo. Special thanks to our local partners:
- Helen's Cycles
- Velo Pasadena
- Incycle SoCal
