Winter Sun cycling training camps on Tenerife
Altitude and climbing camp
11th to 18th January 2013
Come and join us to kickstart your training for the 2013 cyclo sportive season or to lose some pounds after the Christmas period. This second week is specifically aimed at those riders who want to add some mountains to their training schedules.
Our cycling training camps will be run in January and you can choose to start on Saturday January the 4th or Saturday January the 11th, or even come for the full two weeks of cycling training. As Fridays are the main flying days into Tenerife from the UK we operate our 2 training weeks from Friday to Friday.
Our cycling training camp on Tenerife in January is arguably the best place in Europe for mid-winter 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 2000m) - it's no wonder it's the place to go for cycling professional teams as well to undertake their pre season cycling training camps there. Tenerife has been the choice of course of Bradley Wiggins.
Cyclo-Sportive training rides will be aimed at preparing you for the Etape du Tour, Marmotte, a Gran Fondo or other cyclo sportive event. They will be run at a slower pace than the racing cyclist rides and for 2 days in the week there will be a mountainous ride over an Etape-style route.
During the week there will also be mix and mingle evenings for all riders where you can discuss training, nutrition, preparation and mechanics.
We'll be based at the well known hotel resort of Paradise Park Resort&Spa, which is ideally suited close to the airport and close to Mount Teide. Set in beautiful gardens, the hotel has a heated indoor swimming pool, gym, tennis court, supermarket, laundrette and conference room. Accommodation will be in hotel rooms on a half-board basis (bed, breakfast and evening meals). The hotel's buffet-style arrangements should satisfy even the hungriest of cyclists!
