IS THIS CAMP RIGHT FOR ME?Click to read athlete level descriptions
Ride the breathtakingly scenic Mammoth Gran Fondo and spend the days before riding the challenging and beautiful roads of the Eastern Sierra.
Join us for a late-summer Mammoth Mountain get-away with this five-day cycling camp in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. This camp focuses on endurance riding, coaching-based rides, and riding with power. And we will finish the week with the challenging and scenic Mammoth Gran Fondo.
You will improve your cycling skills and knowledge while riding with our top coaches and learn everything you need to successfully complete the Gran Fondo. All camp participants will receive an entry into Mammoth Gran Fondo route of their choice (102, 70 or 42 miles).
In the week before the Mammoth GF, we will ride some spectacular routes in the Mammoth Lakes area. Rides include Red’s Meadow, Minaret Summit and the June Lake loop as well as Upper Rock Creek road – the highest paved road in the state of California! Previous Mammoth camp athletes have called the riding at this camp some of the best they have done anywhere in the world! Our concluding challenge is the Mammoth Gran Fondo which now has 75 miles of the course closed to traffic and includes KOM/QOM challenges on the course.
The camp is five days of riding and working with CTS Coaches. Every bike will be outfitted with a power meter and the power files will be analyzed daily by your assigned coach. You’ll learn numerous training and riding techniques and get to practice these techniques under the supervision of the coaches. Although the terrain around Mammoth is challenging, we welcome riders of all levels to this camp.

About Mammoth, California
Mammoth Lakes, CA is located at 7800 ft on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The town is only a short drive from Yosemite National Park and a few miles north of Mount Whitney – the highest peak in the contiguous US! While Mammoth Lakes is better known as a winter resort town – Mammoth Mountain is home to some of the best skiing in California – it is a summer destination for MTB trails and hidden gem of great road riding. Mammoth Lakes hosted host the 2015 & 2016 Mountain Bike National Championships and they have hosted the Mammoth Gran Fondo (formerly known as the High Sierra Fall Century) for 22 years! Join CTS as we spend a week exploring the roads of this cycling destination. The weather during this time of year can vary from 45-85 degrees as a daily high temperature and mountain weather can be unpredictable. Come prepared for all weather conditions!
