  •  Terry, Just a big thank you for the fantastic week cycling in Spain. You and all the guys were brilliant. The bike was good and comfy, some good power info from the pedals for Tim to look at. I feel very tired but happy. This may have been my first time cycling with you but will not be my last.  Regards´´ Andy McC

This is the camp to springboard you into the big events...La Marmotte, Etape, Maratona OR  those closer  to home...A week of climbing on great roads in great weather. Vehicle support on each ride and daily input on nutrition/position/pacing/climbing and descending...hands on coaching from Tim Ramsden....Top off  the week with  a  Gran Fondo route  of over 160 km & 3500 mtrs of acsent.!! Dont worry a less testing route is also available.    The camp is suitable for those wishing to tackle the longer events...or to get a block of training to kick start the Spring racing season, so why not join us in 2017? 

Each day will offer  a choice of  3 speed groups per day / ride.  Group 1  can average 30 + km per hour on a non stop ride over mountainous terrain. Group 2  normally ride at 25/27 km per hour.  Group  3  21 / 23 km per hour.

Is the camp for me ?  This week is aimed  at  experianced riders, club racers & sportive riders, Those that already have  a reasonable level of fitness gained  from regular  speed & distance riding  in the weeks and months prior to the camp.  To get  the best  from this camp  You will need  to cope with daily  training rides in hilly to mountainous terrain !  with  approx 20 hours plus  riding across the week. Come prepared !
