Tour De Phil

Phil Gaimon has raced all over the world, but calls Los Angeles home, and does the bulk of his training in Malibu. Phil designed these camps based on the trials and tribulations of making his way from an amateur to pro cyclist on the Garmin-Sharp Pro Team 2014. Why Tour de Phil? Based on a cycling challenge, given by team manager Jonathon Vaughters: Essentially, a Grand Tour simulation lovingly, (hatingly?) named ‘Tour de Phil’. The idea was to ride really hard, for three weeks on his own, to adapt his legs for long European races. It sounds crazy, but it worked. Here’s your chance to train alongside, and get insider advice on what works, and what doesn’t, from Phil and pro cyclist guests. Ride Yourself Into Shape, Then Kickback and Relax at the Four Seasons Westlake Village.

The Location

Why Malibu? From Phil's Perspective: “I’ve ridden all over the world, and with great ocean air, and perfect weather year-round, I don't want to live anywhere else. These camps are an opportunity to show off LA, Malibu and the Santa Monica Mountains as a cycling destination. I designed the courses myself, and chose the hotels and itineraries to give riders the full training experience. Pro teams have held their training camps here for years. Here's your chance to find out why.

The Riding

Train and ride with the pros along the most iconic training roads that Malibu has to offer. Experience ocean views from the Pacific Coast Highway, Mountain views from iconic Mulholland, and thrilling descents down Tuna and Decker Canyons. Tour de Phil is designed with the experienced cyclist in mind, though alternative routes will be available so all cyclists may enjoy. A great way to train for a grandfondo, sportive, cycling event or amateur cycle race.
