This cycling camp is designed specifically for women, with a keen interest in road cycling training. Our goal is to provide women with an opportunity to train together and experience the fun of cycling but in a challenging environment.
Medium fitness level required for this week.

Exclusive women group means no males will be part of a women' riding group (besides SportActive coaches). But other cycling groups with males will be in the SportActive Cycling Centre. Thus, no need for leaving your partner or husband at home, girls; actually, bring them with you to pamper you after the cycling training!

 

Training camps are one of the best ways to develop your fitness and skills. 

What are the main worries when you consider a training camp?

  • That you won't be fit or experienced enough ?
  • You think they are reserved only for seasoned cyclists ?
  • Worried you won't be able to keep up, or even worse - hold the group up?

That's why at Sportactive we focus on your learning new skills, and honing those already learned. If you can gain a broad base of skills in a focussed environment, you will unquestionably become a better rider.  This will allow you to go away with new skills to put into practice for the rest of your cycling years.

The main mistake people make is to assume a training camp is about volume ; that it's about getting the miles in. At Sportactive we focus on quality, not on quantity. Think about how many miles you have done on your bike, have they been just miles? Is your bike position right? Can you ride efficiently in a group? How are your descending and climbing skills?

At Sportactive the coaches are able to work at a level and style that matches the level of the group. This will have a positive effect on individuals and the group as a whole.

To support this learning environment further we have found that having a Sportactive Women's Exclusive training camp, allows for better interaction and cohesion within the group. The coaches are able to work at a level and style that matches the majority of the group.
