2014 Sportive Training Weekends in the Yorkshire Dales

May Day and Spring Bank Holiday

Ride the roads of the Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France Yorkshire and achieve your Cyclo Sportive goals with specialist training camps to prepare you for your next event.

Part of a series of Bank Holiday training camps in Yorkshire, these weekends have been designed to make sure cyclists are truly ready to take on their next cycling challenge.

During our many years of taking UK cyclists to Sportives, there's one common problem and that's that many riders are not properly prepared for the rigours of completing their chosen course. Sometimes this is through a lack of training, sometimes it's a case of underestimating quite how difficult the route is.

That's why we've put together a series of unique and very comprehensive weekend training camps to help you achieve your goals.

Our Sportive Training & Preparation camps will be based in the market town of Skipton, gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park at the excellent Hotel Rendezvous.

In order to get the most out of a training weekend we have decided to hold them over 2 long weekends in May, which will enable you to get 2 long and testing rides plus a short morning ride on the final day. We also have a couple of informal evenings where we will discuss Training, Nutrition, & Bike maintenance.

The training rides will be led by local riders who have excellent knowledge of the region's roads and who's on & off the bike experience will be a valuable asset to the weekend.

Our training rides have been designed to simulate a typical sportive route and will include 3 climbs in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. We hope to be able to offer 3 group rides catering for most abilities, so whether you are aiming to go under 8 hours or simply avoid the “Broom Wagon” there will be a group for you.

The training rides will be backed up by vehicular support and food and drink will be provided on the ride (energy products, plus fruit and soft drinks).

In the afternoon there will be mechanical assistance and you will have free access to the hotels leisure facilities.
In the evening their will be informative seminars on training, nutrition, & bike maintenance.
