Due to a couple of people dropping out there are 2 spaces on a road bike training camp from 15th- 22nd April (6 days of riding 16th-21st).

The location is Banyoles in Northern Spain which has great climate, food, roads and most importantly fantastic climbs.
Closest airport is Girona, some of us are flying to Barcelona and transferring an hour and a half or so from there.

The group will be led by a pro who knows the area very well. He has prepared 6 routes, alternating tough and easier days. The toughest day is 135km with 2500m ascent. The group is a reasonable but not extremely high standard. I would imagine the average speed on the tough days will be low 20s km/h. Ideally there will be around 8 riders and we will ride together on the flats and wait for eachother on the top of climbs.

There will be a support vehicle available each day. While it will not follow us for the full duration of each ride it will be at key points along the route where additional clothing or refuelling is necessary. It will also be available in case of serious incident or mechanical problem that cannot be fixed out on the road.

You can either bring your own bike or rent one there (Cannondale Synapse equipped with Shimano 105 for 140E per week).

Cost is 300 Euros for the 6 guided rides (with support vehicle), including 4 bottles, juice mix and 4 pieces of riding food per day.
