IN JUNE, CLUB LA SANTA IS EXCITED TO WELCOME ITS FIRST EVER WOMEN’S BIKE WEEK.

In June, Club La Santa is excited to welcome its first ever Women’s Bike Week.

The week takes place from the 5th- 11th  June and consists of a variety of exciting, picturesque rides, covering a range of distances across the island.

As well as hours covered riding and exploring Lanzarote there will be plenty of time to discover Club La Santa’s extensive timetable of activities, and its newly renovated Wellness Centre.

One of the coaches leading the camp is Andy Cook. Andy is a lifelong cyclist and has even represented GB, with over 20 years experiences organising and leading camps, his cycling knowledge allows him to share his experiences with others, helping participants to improve their own training, technique along the way.

 Andy launched his first all women’s training camp last year called WOW’s (Women on Wheels) The camp attracted 20 riders who wanted to have fun on their bikes and share the pleasure and camaraderie with other like minded lady riders and learn some new skills and techniques at the same time in a relaxed environment, it was a great success that’s why this year Andy and the team at Club La Santa bring you Women’s Bike Week.

 

 

 “What guests can expect to get out of the week?”

“Participants can expect to benefit from years of cycling experience so all riders whether a novice or seasoned rider will pick up tips to make riding easier and most importantly more enjoyable. It might be something as simple as the best way to change an inner tube, to detailed training sessions or a bike fit, nutrition tips or even equipment choices to name a few. Club La Santa nearly always has ideal cycling weather, riding to Famara beach is my favourite route.”

Who is the camp aimed at?

“The camp is suitable for all ability levels and we will ensure that everyone is observed and they can take as much out of the camp as possible.

 We love to know everyone’s goals at the start of the week during the introduction and registration session. It might be something simple such as: meet new friends or cycle 100 KM’s, learning to ride with clips, riding in a group, structuring a training plan. Everyone goals are different but we can tailor or sessions with individual to know exactly what they want to achieve from it.”

What’s a typical day on the camp like?

Each day, after breakfast, we will all meet at the Bike Centre for a safety brief before starting out on the rides.

Riders are at liberty to self select the correct ability group and move between to ensure that they are riding with the right group for their level of fitness and skill. On the longer rides the groups will have a support car that will supply refreshments at a predetermined stopping point. After the ride there are optional activities to help you relax following the rides. Of course there are all the other amazing activities that Club La Santa has to offer too.”

 

 

Daily – how far are the rides?

“The ride distances will be tailored to suit the ability level of the riders on the camp. We can adapt the rides accordingly. Typically we will ride between 50 to 80 kms most days with a longer ride planned for Wednesday. The fitter riders might manage 110- 120 kms on the last day but rest assured there will be a group for everyone.”

In spare time outside of camp hours what activities would you recommend the ladies try?

“Stretch and relax, Yoga, Paddle boarding – drinking wine at El Lago and watch the sunset over the lagoon.”
