CTS Figueroa Mountain Gran Fondo

November 13 2021
Santa Ynez Valley, California, USA

A GLORIOUSLY TOUGH, SERIOUSLY FUN GRAN FONDO

The roads of the Santa Ynez Valley have a long history as pro training grounds for important races like the Tour de France. It’s this history that influences the difficult nature of the Fig Fondo.

While there are beautiful vineyards lining the country roads of the Fig Fondo, this is no smooth wine country tour.

You’ll take on the epic hors catégorie Figueroa Mountain climb, test your descending prowess on soul-stirring switchbacks, and experience sections of road that’ll make you think you’ve been thrown into the middle of Paris-Roubaix. 

A DASH OF MIXED TERRAIN TO KEEP THINGS FUN

Satisfy Your Adventurous Side With A Little Gravel, "California Cobbles", And A Few Rough Patches Along The Way#

UNINTERRUPTED WINE COUNTRY ROADS

Ah, The Freedom Of The Open Road. Between The Challenging Course Sections You'll Be Greeted With Beautiful Valley Roads That'll Fill Your Soul With Joy

FOOD & AFTER PARTY

Join us for a delicious lunch from local Solvang restaurants, beer from Figueroa Mountain Brewery and local wines.
