This will be an excellent way to kick off 2020 with a 3-day cycling training camp-tour where you will ride 300 miles in 3-days with full support. This camp will traverse through some of Florida’s best cycling roads starting at Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland Florida heading to the sandy gulf beach roads down near Venice then through miles of orange groves along with a fun gravel section! During this camp, you will get to see some of the best roads to ride on in central Florida and get a great weekend of training in. We will start 7:30am Friday morning and end Sunday afternoon around 3:00pm.
This camp will be an excellent training opportunity to work on building endurance, long distance sustainable power, drafting practice, cadence and efficiency practice, and nutrition for long distance riding. With an experienced coach, full SAG support including lunch stops and riding fuel, and a fun and motivated group of riders, you will be able to push yourself longer and harder than you think! Riders have gotten their first centuries on this camp and since each day is a one-way ride, every mile will be new one with memories to be made.

Wow! What a week of training up in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia on the North Carolina climbing camp. Riders saw close to 30,000 feet of climbing in five days including very intense climbs, beautiful countryside, new power record, great meals, gravel excursions, waterfalls, and a ton of smiles, laughs and good times. Super proud of this bunch for all of their hard efforts during the camp. Big shout out to Hammer Nutrition and Tom Elbel for helping with SAG Support!

IMPORTANT information and START LOCATION CHANGE FOR THIS SATURDAY’S Florida Polytechnic Time Trial. This will be part of a special edition time trial route of 8.5 miles. The location of this time trial is one of my favorite roads in all of Florida known for its old country bike trail style road feel accompanied by the fresh smell of orange groves and the real Florida vibe.🌎🍊🌞

Want to get in the best possible climbing shape and ride at your very best in this years Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty Bike Ride? I have engineered a powerful two month training program starting July 28th to put you in peak form for this event. Two months has been a proven effective time to prepare and prime for an event, especially if you already have a good base in your training. This training plan includes weekly feedback and is a special discounted price of $189 total.
If you really want to get the absolute best hands on climbing work and an amazing adventure too, then consider coming to the Summer 2019 North Georgia-North Carolina Climbing-Waterfall Camp on August 21st. We will be doing the actual Six Gap climbs and also going to the highest point in Georgia on Brasstown Bald for a perfect opportunity to get as much climbing work you could ask for. Combined with training on the Six Gap climbs at this camp, we will also take stops at waterfalls which will not disappoint. We currently only have 1-2 more spots at the cabin for this camp so direct message me to get the last spots!
