This three-day mini-camp will cover the finer points of road riding. You will learn how to ride in pacelines, echelons and groups. Climbing technique, descending skills and road etiquette will be demystified. Your days will be spent executing specific skills and workouts, and evenings will include short seminars explaining the techniques and goals of each day. You will be introduced to proper bike fit and you'll learn about the essentials of bike maintenance. Most of all, you'll have a great time ensconced in the beautiful sport of cycling in one of the best spots in the world to enjoy it.
This camp is designed for those who are either recently converted to riding a road bike or those who have some experience and are looking for a structured approach to learning the skills that will make cycling that much more enjoyable.
