Girona Training Camps

Alpine Cadence : Supported rides for cyclists in the Alps
Girona Training Camps April 22-29  and April 29 - May 6  2017

For 2017 we'll be in Girona for 2 weeks, join us for either week or both if you fancy a big block of training.

Girona has been used by many pro cyclists in recent years as a training base due to it's climate, varied terrain and great road quality. We'll be there in the spring for 2 weeks of epic riding. Our hotel in the old town of Girona will provide an atmospheric start and finish point for our daily adventures. Our daily rides will include beautiful coastal riding along the Mediterranean, tough climbs like the infamous Rocacorba and riding through the volcanic area of the Garrotxa. 

Although the riding on our trips is always the priority, mention has to be made of Girona's fantastic selection of restaurants. We'll help organise different restaurants for you every evening so that the eating is as much to look forward to as the riding!

The Schedule

Saturday 22rd April or Saturday 29th April

Arrival at Girona or Barcelona airports, we'll collect you and get you settled into our hotel in the centre of Girona. Transfer time from Girona Airport is just 15 minutes, Barcelona is just over an hour away.


Over the next six days we'll ride a selection of loops from Girona that will be between 100km and 140km in length. There will be significant climbs each day although much of the riding will be on flat and rolling terrain. 5 of the days will have full vehicle support. One of the days, most likely in the middle of the week, will be considerably easier/shorter to allow some recovery during the week. Rides will generally begin at around 8.45, there will be a coffee/snack stop and the aim will be to complete rides by early/mid afternoon to allow for lots of recuperation and relaxing time. Each evening there will be an informal lecture/briefing session where there will be an opportunity to pick the brains of your coach and guide and to go over the route for the next day.

Who will enjoy this trip?
This centre based trip will suit medium to stronger riders who have experience of riding in a group. There will be a large amount of group riding outside of the bigger climbs and being comfortable in a group environment will be important. For 2017 we will be running 2 groups of diifferent levels (numbers permitting)with both groups benefitting from our vehicle support. This trip will be particulary useful for anyone preparing and training for a key event later in the summer. This is a trip that will suit non cycling partners too. There's lots to see and do in the area, contact us to find a price for a non rider on this trip.
