The Spring Training Camp Experience

The event is designed to deliver the highest level of training possible in 4 days. You may have done these routes but not back-to-back in a training environment with other riders. The group environment allows you to do multiple long days. Each day is “no drop” but each rider is expected to be on a level of fitness to not hold up the group beyond natural re-group points. If you flat or have a mechanical the group will keep rolling BUT DON’T WORRY! There is a “team car” to change your flat, get a new wheel, and help pace you back onto the group.  If you get hungry and have empty pockets, go back to the car for food or ask your ride leader to do it for you. Thirsty? Same deal, bottles are in the car. Too tired to finish the route? You can bail on the full route or get in the car.
