Mallorca Spring cycling training camps 2014
8th to 29th March 2014
Why not have a week's cycling holiday and a week's cycling training at the same time? Our 2014 cycling preparation and training camps are based at the Viva Vanity Golf Hotel in Alcudia, Mallorca. The choice of champions.
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 the riding Mallorca's roads, the nice weather and enjoying the company of other cyclists.
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 of the 2014 Tour de France. All our camps are ideal for preparing for such events as the Etape du Tour and La Marmotte.
Mallorca is arguably one of the best places in Europe to base your pre-season cycling training. It is a known fact that the weather is much warmer at this time of year than other European destinations. This is why many of the top professional teams use the area for their pre-season training. The roads are of good quality and there is a choice of either flat coastal, hilly and even mountainous rides.
Our Cycling Preparation & Training camps will run during March 2014
08 March - 15 March 2014
15 March - 22 March 2014
22 March - 29 March 2014
All levels of cyclist will be catered for and each week we have groups for racing and cyclo-sportive riders and those that want more leisurely cycle riding. Racing and cyclo-sportive rides will be led by current racing cyclists and will be aimed at those cyclists who are preparing for the following cycling racing season. Cyclo Sportive rides will be aimed at preparing riders for completing an Etape du Tour or Gran Fondo cyclo sportive event. Cycling leisure and touring rides will be at a slower pace.
Our camps are based at the excellent 4 star Viva Vanity Golf Hotel in Alcudia, Mallorca. The hotel is ideally located very near the beach and it is equipped to cater for cyclists. Many Pro teams come to this specific hotel. This very hotel is Team Sky's winter training location. This is an over 18s only hotel and the hotel will be inhabited with like-minded fellow cyclists.
