It’s a mountain that is used by many of the local professionals for training. And while this mountain will challenge your legs and resolve, you will also enjoy a spectacular ride that takes you from the saguaro cacti of the desert up to cool pine forests, brisk air, and dramatic windblown igneous rock.

Camp Conclusion: The ride up Mt. Lemmon caps off a great week of training. Lunch will be waiting for you back at the office and be followed by a final sit down with your coach to review the week’s training data. This will conclude the camp, and those looking to head out of town early will be done by 3pm.

Breakfast: ON YOUR OWN @ 6:00-8:00AM
Lunch: CHIPOTLE @ 1:00-2:00PM
