Cadence Training Camp in Spain
Aug 29 2017
Extend your cycling season and join our coaches and ride guides on the Cadence autumn training camp in Spain, from Friday 20th October to Monday 23rd October 2017
Cadence Performance invite you to join the Cadence team on our first training camp in Calpe, Spain. Four days of great riding, coaching and fantastic tips and advice.
With over 300 days of sunshine a year, and a topography where sea and mountains run side by side, Calpe is a cyclist’s heaven. Temperatures in October average 21 degrees Celsius. The fact that 10 of the 18 World Tour teams, (including BMC and Giant-Alpecin) choose Calpe for their training camps speaks volumes.
Riding away from Calpe we will follow the twisting coastline that takes us inland, where many kilometres of quiet stunning roads await, winding their way through valleys and over mountain passes, all set in amazing scenery.
This training camp will be an opportunity to extend your summer season, and improve your riding and climbing skills. Some climbs are long and steady, between 6 and 15 km, averaging 5 – 6%, and reaching altitudes in excess of 1000m. Others are short, steep and explosive reaching gradients of 25%. It will also be an opportunity to improve your descending, with a heady mix of hairpins, sweeping, and tight corners. During our weekend there will be the opportunity to tackle well known climbs including the Port de Tudons, a 16km climb with an altitude gain of 800m, and the Coll de Rates, Costa Blanca’s most famous climb, taking 7km to top out at an altitude of 626 metres.
Calpe is only an hour’s drive from Alicante airport, and the region has earned itself the title of the ‘Healthiest Place to Live’ in Spain, due to the great climate, clean air and a diet sourced from acres of fertile fields, vineyards and citrus groves.
