Figueroa Mountain Nov. 11

I came across this Gran Fondo the other day — have never climbed Figueroa Mountain but have heard good war stories.

I reached out to the organizers about a discount for clubs/groups, which they'll offer (15%) for a group of 10+. If anyone here in Southern/Central CA is interested, let me know. So far the club response has been deafening silence, likely owing to other events going on, so I'm unsure if I'll reach the quota.

cheers

I'm right in the area and would absolutely be down for it, except that I'll (hopefully) be shepherding a high school cross country team to the first round of CIF playoffs that day. If you want to try to put another day together, I could probably rope in a few other riders.

It's a great area for riding. Don't really need the organization of a Gran Fondo behind you.

Thanks, I'm sure you're right about the Gran Fondo support aspect. I've done parts of the ride like Foxen Canyon which I found pretty but wouldn't make the effort to do again.

Figueroa's been on my list for a while, as well as around Vandenberg plus the pieces of Eroica in that area. Would be happy to have an escort who knows the area.
