09/02/2012 - Nice - Training Camp

Rating: Rate this Event Now

Run by women, for women, the camp, which takes place over a long weekend is designed to provide a fun, supportive environment for female cyclists to develop their cycling skills. If you're a competent cyclist already, looking to improve your climbing, descending, cornering and riding in a group, this weekend is for you. Never tackled a 10km climb before? ... Come along and find out what it's like! Whatever your goals for 2012, we'll help you achieve them.

Only an 90-minute flight from London, Nice has some of the most beautiful cycling in Europe. It's where the Alps dip their toes into the sea, so within 20 minutes' pedalling from the bustling promenade you can be surrounded by nature, climbing on small, car-free roads towards beautiful mountain villages. Led by experienced guides, you'll experience the best cycling the region has to offer - even in winter we cycle on climbs up to 1,000 metres. In February the weather is usually calm, sunny and settled, and the temperatures significantly better than in the UK. And, when you're not on the bike, relax in charming and cosmopolitan Nice, with all the restaurants, cafés and nightlife the city offers.

A 4 night/5 day package based on 2 people sharing a modern studio apartment is £695 per person.  Packages based on 3 sharing a room are avaliable at a reduced price. Single supplement is £115. Packages for non-cycling partners and local cyclists without accommodation available as well.
