These camps help build upon a good base and intensify your training in anticipation of a racing season or other cycling events. Road Training Camp attendees should have at least a 1000 miles in their legs, and should be familiar with the basic tenets of training. Ideally, you have ridden with a club/team and have participated in races/group ride events.
If you are ready to step up your training and your knowledge base about advanced cycling techniques and skills, the Road Training Camp is for you. Over the course of a week, you will get lean and mean, with a minimum of 22 hours in the saddle and more than 25,000 feet of climbing!
