Our Flagship Cycling Camp Modeled After Pro Teams’ Spring Training Week Long Camps

February may mean snow, cold, and trainer rides for most areas of the country, but Tucson in February is a cyclist’s paradise. We’ve put together a five-and-a-half-day camp of riding and presentations to help you kick off your 2017 season.

This camp focuses on endurance training with a power meter – longer rides at moderate, steady intensities – all under the guidance of our experienced coaching staff. You’ll learn training techniques and group riding skills under the supervision of the coaches. All camp rides are fully supported with a high coach to athlete ratio, full SAG support, and our mechanics will wash and tune your bike after every ride.

Description: We save the hardest ride for last at Camp – Mount Lemmon! The technique fundamentals, pacing strategies and nutritional tips you’ve learned the previous days will all help you conquer this challenging “hors catégorie” climb. 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 desert riding. Lunch again will be waiting for you back at the office and be followed by a final sit down with your assigned 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. However, for those able to stay, we will have a relaxing final dinner in the evening.

Breakfast: ON YOUR OWN @ 6:00-8:00AM
Lunch: CTS TUCSON OFFICE @ 12:30-1:30PM
Dinner: PIAZZA GAVI @ 6:30-7:30PM
