Andy Cook bike weeks - Club La Santa - Lanzarote

2nd to 15th January 2015

Whether you’re looking to prepare for the season ahead while enjoying the sunny climate and challenging terrain or just want to enjoy some great rides in wonderful scenery, these weeks are a great way to start your year. Andy Cook and his team will assist and lead you on the rides in different groups according to your individual level, from relative beginners to seasoned enthusiasts.

The island offers a variety of terrain, with significant mountain climbs as well as undulating roads, making Lanzarote the perfect place to ride and progress your training. You will be taken to the beautiful North, the fascinating Fire Mountains and to the far South. You will climb the steep Fémes, a climb out of category, and the long and beautiful Tabayesco, and you will bike a large part of the Ironman Lanzarote bike course.

Training:
The routes will vary in length each day to offer different levels of difficulty. You will have many hours in the saddle with a relatively low intensity, but there will also be time for other activities. During the week, there will be seminars/talks on how to continue your training when you return home and other subjects such as nutrition. Besides that, we will have other social activities and at the end of each week, we will have a celebratory dinner.

During the long rides there will be stops for sandwiches and refreshments where you can take in the beautiful views. If numbers dictate, the programme will be amended to offer shorter rides than those advertised, but will still cover the same areas and terrain.

Camp Registration and travel arrangements:
The camp is restricted to guests staying at Club La Santa during the event. Pre-registration is required as we have a limited number of participants.
The price for one week is 130 Euros, or 180 Euros for two weeks, including all activities during the Bike week, sandwich and refreshments on long rides, t-shirt and the celebratory dinner. The full payment for the camp will take place in the welcome meeting upon arrival in Club La Santa.
