Race Details

Ooh-Rah! The Toujours Fidèle – Tour de Camp Pendleton on October 3rd is fast approaching! Please read our helpful race-day information below.


Please print your waiver. You must bring a signed waiver to pick up your race number on Saturday morning.


To enter the Base, you must bring a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration for yourself and a valid ID for all passengers. From I-5: Exit Cristianitos Road, at the northern part of Camp Pendleton, near San Clemente. Proceed east 1-mile until you reach the entrance to Camp Pendleton. After entering the base, turn right on Cristianitos Road and proceed a couple of miles until you reach Camp San Mateo (Area 62). Follow race event signs to the designated parking lots. Allow 15 minutes from the base gate to the race site. When aboard the base, please follow all posted speed limits. If you plan to ride your bike to the race site from the San Clemente area, please have a copy of your race confirmation email in addition to a valid ID. Only registered cyclists will be allowed to ride on base during the event.
