2013 May Day Bank Holiday Sportive Training Weekends in the Yorkshire Dales
3rd to 6th May 2013
Join us on our Yorkshire Dales cycling training camp during the May day 2013 weekend to prepare you for your cyclo sportive this summer.
Join Sports Tours International for a specialist cycling training camp dedicated to preparing your for your next Cyclo Sportive.
Taking place in Skipton, North Yorkshire, this camp is ideal for anyone looking to take part in events including the Etape du Tour, Paris Roubaix, La Marmotte or any other Cyclo Sportive.
We started the popular camps a few years ago as we noticed that some cyclists weren't getting the most out of their event. Whether this was down to a lack of training, or just underestimating how difficult Sportives are. Here you can speak to the experts and get advice and support from peers.
The days will be split up into various key themes, including mechanical assistance, seminars on training, nutrition and bike maintenace. We'll also have route and profile analysis from experts about Cyclo Sportives.
