TRAINING

The Bike Week will keep you challenged for a week of amazing riding in varying distances, challenging climbs, great climate plus some interesting talks, in which Chris Anker and Dennis will share the stories and experiences from altogether more than a generation in World Tour cycling.

During the week, you can test your legs and push yourself on the steep climb to Femés and on the long and beautiful climb to Tabayesco. There will be sandwiches and refreshments on the long rides and at the end of the week you will have cycled between 500-600km. There will be a couple of lectures with Chris & Dennis, and a nice group dinner at the end of the camp.

The week caters for all levels, but it is recommended for you to be able to ride a minimum of 3-5 hours daily at around 24–30+ km/h. People, who haven’t been training at all during summer and autumn will probably find it difficult to keep the pace. You can find the provisional programme on our website.
