training Camp for New York Cycle Club

Monday, February 27 to Friday, March 3, 2017


5 days of awesome riding in Southern California with coaching from CCSD covering topics such as: improving climbing, descending and cornering; pacing; nutrition; working with power or heart rate; essential bike skills; essential bike mechanics and safety checks; pedaling efficiency drills; how to approach group rides / events; and how to identify and improve on cycling weaknesses.  


Rides will be between 40 and 70 miles per day with a mixture of terrain from rolling hills to more challenging climbing days.  All rides will be at 'base camp' pace, i.e. endurance pace designed to build a solid base for the upcoming season.  This is not a camp for sprints, anaerobic intervals or extreme riding!

The aim of this camp is to have fun with fellow New York cyclists in a beautiful riding environment while sneaking in some bonus miles to surprise your riding buddies back East.  

Athletes will benefit from one to one coaching on the road and excellent support from our roving SAG support.

Temecula area

Temecula is located 50 miles north of San Diego, CA, and still retains some appearance of an Old West town. In spite of this appearance, Temecula is a modern town and has many services within walking distance. The town is located at 700 feet elevation and has many surrounding traffic-free roads that take in the Southern California coastal range scenery.
