Climbing 101 camps are perfect for cyclists looking to improve climbing and descending performance, and also looking to learn essential road cycling skills like riding close to other cyclists, basic drafting, eating and drinking on the move, etc. This is a great camp for riders who find climbing, descending, and/or riding in a group intimidating.
Cyclists have been drawn to the Santa Ynez Valley in California's Central Coast for decades, and CTS has been running training camps in these mountains and valleys for more than 15 years.
This camp is designed for beginner and intermediate road cyclists who want to get better at riding, learn about training, and those who simply want to get in a good 3-day training block. Each day will include 3-4 hours of riding, and we’ll complement the work we do on the bike with coach-led training presentations on sports nutrition, training with power, and other topics. You will also sit down individually with a coach for one-on-one power file data analysis after every ride. All camp rides feature full mechanic and nutrition support and a high coach-athlete ratio.
