Mallorca Training Camp for members of Cambridge Triathlon Club and Cambridge CC.
Following successful trips in previous years, the training camp will be repeated this coming April. The camp is open to all members of the Cambridge Cycling and Triathlon Clubs (except unaccompanied minors) and is particularly targeted at those in the two clubs who train together on the weekly rides.
The camp will be based on a structured programme of group rides, and will include ad-hoc group and individual coaching sessions as well as discussions. The groups will include: -
Racers:- Sporting plus, fast chaingang, BCF license holders. The programme will include long rides, fast group rides, chain gangs, lead out, tactical practise and time trial.
Sportif:- Sporting and tri-club chaingang. Long mountain rides, technical descending, fast group rides and time trial.
Conditioning:- Intermediate, tri-club medium chain-gang. A group, or groups, for those who want to do all or most of the above but feel that they might not be able to keep up with the faster groups.
What if you’re not sure that there will be a group for you? Talk to those who you know ride at a similar speed who intend to book a place.
The camp will be structured to ensure that you get the most out of your time without being too tired to enjoy it. You will experience the best riding that Mallorca has to offer (and that’s pretty much as good it gets anywhere).
The aim is to make the camp as affordable as possible. The two clubs have again agreed to subsidise the running of the camp so that we can include airport transfers. The cost will be £440 for a single room, £400 if you are happy to share a twin room and £360 each if you book a twin room as a pair. You will need to book your flight to Palma. Currently these are under £100 return with Easyjet and Ryanair (additional charges for bikes and luggage). The prices will increase as the flights book up.
We’ll be staying in the same hotel, The Dunas Blancas, in El Arenal. It’s close to the Airport and Palma. It’s a great base for cycling with access to the whole island. Although the camp will be primarily cycling based, El Arenal is a good base for triathlon as the swimming pool is a five minute walk from the hotel and the sea one minute. The promenade is largely traffic free for running and there are some trails within easy running distance.
Accommodation will be 3-star half board - a £65 deposit and completion of the Booking Form
will secure your place.
