Tuesday - Welcome Dinner

The adventure starts on Tuesday night with a welcome dinner to get acquainted with VeloGuide and some local VeloGuides who will be riding with you through the week as well as VeloGuide PRO Stefano Barberi and VeloGuide's CEO Joel Goralski.

Wednesday - Up close and personal with Phil

Phil Gaimon will guide us through the first ride as he shows us his favourite local coffee, lunch and cookie spots.

Thursday - Ride like a Local with PRO Stefano Barberi

We continue early the next morning riding like a local with Stefano Barberi who will show us his own favourite sports.

Friday - Hill Climb World Championship

Friday's event will be a challenge. The Hill Climb Worlds are held on Gibraltar Road in Santa Barbara which is famous for its amazing scenery, but more known to cyclists as a battleground. Riders will be eager to challenge themselves on this beautiful backdrop, suffering for fun, prizes, and glory, to compare their times against the best in the world.

Saturday & Sunday - Phil's Cookie Fondo

Saturday and Sunday will be all Ride, Eat Cookies, Rest, Repeat. Phil has worked all year to bring a ton of fun activities during the weekend and the ride, the main reason you're here, 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.
