Carlsbad Training Camp 2014

Our 2013  Carlsbad training camp was a great success.  Our riders enjoyed many of the best roads that San Diego has to offer, and we  are looking forward to  the 2014 edition.   With an added day or riding, this one is going to be even better.  Will you join us from February 16-23?

About The Camp

Greenville Cycling Center and Crank Cycling are joining up to bring you a world-class training camp in sunny Southern California! Based in Carlsbad, this camp will provide the enthusiast rider and the avid racer an opportunity to train out of a relaxing seaside resort, the Carlsbad Inn.

San Diego Spring Cycling Training CampWe’ll blend a variety of rides up and down the beautiful SoCal coast along the Pacific Coast Highway with awesome rolling rides around northern San Diego County including an excursion to Palomar Mountain. Off your bike you can enjoy the trendy cafés and restaurants of Carlsbad Village while just steps from the Pacific Ocean!

This camp will include plenty of skills training: cornering, climbing, descending, pace-line technique as well as nutrition strategy and how to recover quickly day to day and within rides.

Our San Diego camp is a power training camp. Use your own power meter or we will pair your bike with a PowerTap wheel for the duration of the camp. Each evening we will review your day on the bike in a classroom style discussion along with presentations on nutrition, training plan design and more
