Details

Our authentic and natural Algarve of salt pans and migrating birds, of small towns and villages, of sunny unspoiled beaches and dunes, of fragrant orchards and forests that share something very unique: the quietest back roads and warmest cycling weather in autumn and winter!

Led by Tomás an ex-professional cyclist for the Tavira team, born in the Algarve to English/Irish parents. He has a UK sport science education and 6 years coaching experience, to help you improve your physical condition, confidence, knowledge and overall performance.

Highlights:
- Ride up to 500km over these 4 days on immaculate tarmac through breath taking scenery.
- Physiological (critical power) testing in the field: with high precision on the road and real world values to plan the right balance.
- Drills and exercises will be taught. We’ll also work on bike handling and riding quickly but safely.
- A full report from the training camp with your training levels up dated and specific feedback given on areas you can improve on.
- Teamwork. If you’re a cyclist, you know the value of teamwork. We will work on group dynamic and tactics.
- There are also three informal evening seminars on diet and lifestyle, ‘the engine’ (brief run down on the physiology) and pacing.
