Albir Gardens Spring Cycling Training Camps 2015
7th to 14th March 2015
Join us in March 2015 for our cycling preparation and training camp based on the Spanish mainland in the Costa Blanca.
Arguably the best place in Europe for pre-season cycling training - with warm weather compared to the rest of Europe; good quality roads and a choice of coastal, hilly and even mountainous rides (some go up to 1200m) - it's no wonder it's the place to go for cycling professional teams as well as amateur cyclists to undertake their pre season cycling training camps.
Our 2015 cycling training camp will be run in March for 7 nights beginning on 7th and finishing on 14th March.
All levels of cyclist will be accommodated and we will have groups for racing cyclists, cyclo-sportive riders and those more interested in leisurely riding.
Cyclo-Sportive rides will be aimed at preparing you for the Etape du Tour, Paris Roubaix, La Marmotte or any other Cyclo Sportive or Gran Fondo.
Please note that our cycling training camps are about clocking up some miles in a great location with some great company. We will not bore you with class room style seminars or lectures. It's about riding the Costa's roads, the nice weather and enjoying the company of other cyclists plus some nice food.
We also run training camps at Club la Santa in Lanzarote and let's also not forget our very popular Sportive training camps in Skipton back in the UK, where you can ride the roads of the Grand Depart Yorkshire of the 2014 Tour de France. All our camps are ideal for preparing for such events as the Etape du Tour and La Marmotte.
We'll be based at the well known hotel complex of Albir Gardens, which has been specifically used to catering for sports groups for years. Set in beautiful gardens, the complex has a heated indoor swimming pool, gym, tennis court, supermarket, laundrette and conference room.
Accommodation will be in apartments on a half-board basis (bed, breakfast and evening meals). The hotel's buffet-style arrangements should satisfy even the hungriest of cyclists!
Each apartment is modern and equipped with a twin bedroom, separate lounge with double sofa bed, bathroom, kitchen and balcony.
After each ride you will be able to benefit from the post-race buffet in the bar with fruit, smoothies, cereals, cake, nuts & raisins
With so much to do, this resort is perfect for all the family and many riders bring their wives and children.
