TRAINING

The island offers a variety of terrain, with significant mountain climbs as well as undulating roads, making Lanzarote the perfect place to ride and progress your training. You will cover various parts of this beautiful island, climbing Fémes where you can choose the very steep side or the gentler but still challenging ascent and the beautiful 10km long Tabayesco climb. Many of the rides will take in parts of the famous IRONMAN Lanzarote course. To join the camp you should be over 50 years of age and able to bike between 3 to 5 hours daily at a speed from 22km/h to 27km/h. The routes will vary in length and difficulty. We will hold seminars/talks on various aspects of training, bike setup and other topics alongside social activities including a dinner at the end of the week. During some of the rides we will stop for a coffee and cake.

Its law in Spain to ride with a helmet. You can either bring your own, borrow one from the Bike Centre or purchase a Cannondale QUICK helmet for just 30€.
