5th Edition of Phil's Cookie Fondo another Big Success in Malibu

Pro Athlete and Celebrity attendance was strong this years at Phil’s Cookie Fondo!

Last weekend saw the running of the hugely popular 5th edition of Phil Gaimon’s Cookie Fondo, one of North America’s top Gran Fondo’s.  

It was Phil’s chance to show off the great climbs around Malibu, breathe in the ocean air, sample the perfect weather and raise funds for Chef’s Cycle and No Kid Hungry.

Cookie Mania Sweeps across Malibu California

The legendary climbs included; the Pacific Coast Highway, iconic Mulholland, thrilling descents down Latigo and Decker Canyons, Encinal and Yerba Buena Canyons and for the toughest, the dirt climb of Sycamore Canyon.

At the top of every climb riders earned delicious gourmet cookie’s, to spur them onwards!

Ana Isabel Schwartz said Epic ride & weekend. Met Jeremy Powers, Frankie Andreu, the vegan cyclist and of course Phil Gaimon  finally in person. That third climb- holy shit, but I will never forget the view of the Pacific coming back down. To everyone reading this thread I just did the Fonda weekend and I am telling you you really really want to do this. The routes, the food, meeting former pros (like Jeremy Powers) we don’t just sit there and grin for pictures but actually talk to you like buddies”
