CTS Coach Led Pace Groups


Whether you are trying to set a course record or just enjoy the many views of the Fig Fondo we have a CTS Coach lead pace group for you. Ride Figueroa Mountain at your own pace and jump into a pace group for the rest of the ride. All pace groups start from Aid Station #3 at Fig Mtn Brew Los Olivos (mile 36.7) following the descent of Figueroa Mountain.

The CTS Coaches will control the pace of the group to ensure finishing as close as possible to the projected finish time. Find yourself in a group moving way too fast for you? Sit up, take a breather and wait for the next group to catch you. Feeling way too strong for your group? Attack! Go for it! Try to reach the next group on the road. 

All pace groups are based on total finishing time and each group departs the Fig Mtn Brew aid station based on that time.
