2011 Tour of California Cycling Camp

Come train and ride with us in beautiful California May 14-21st during the
2011 Amgen Tour of California cycling race

Our 6-day cycling training camp takes place in northern California while the TOC is passing through. You'll have the opportunity to see a TOC race start and finish as well as riding on some of the same roads and routes that the race takes place on.

You'll also have the option of viewing the Tour of California time trial in Solvang, CA and the mountain top finish on Mount Baldy, CA on your own after the end of the camp.

We won't make you pack up every day and move to the next location. We base our camps from one comfortable location so you can relax each day after riding. Our TOC camp will be based just blocks from the ocean in Santa Cruz California, and our rides will take you along the beautiful coastline and up through the Redwood Forests in the surrounding Santa Cruz Mountains.

Our professionally coached road and mountain bike cycling training camps give you the opportunity to focus on riding, eating, and relaxing, while learning about training methodology and philosophy. You'll spend your days riding on beautiful roads or trails that provide enough challenges to improve your fitness while still enjoying your cycling. You'll receive full support throughout the camp by our staff and will be guided by professional cycling coach and author of Base Building for Cyclists, Thomas Chapple.

Our cycling training camps are designed to provide you a cycling experience that will result in an increase in your cycling fitness and knowledge. During our camps you'll learn about nutrition, training plan and workout design, power meter and heart rate training, strength training, bike fit, riding skills, and more.

A training camp provides you the opportunity to leave your daily work and life stress behind so that you can focus on challenging yourself physically and mentally in a structured, coached setting that also allows for additional recovery so that your body will be best able to absorb the additional training load. The results are greater fitness and enjoyment.

Come out and enjoy some great roads and trials this year. In addition to improving your cycling fitness, knowledge, and enjoyment you'll get to spend your vacation riding on beautiful roads or trails.
