Tour Overview:

Have  you  ever  wondered  why  most  of  the  pro  teams  come  to Tenerife for their training camps? The roads here are perfect for training, great road surfaces and consistent climbs, and the weather in winter is consistently over 20 degrees C and dry.

This is our 6th winter of training camps in Tenerife and our routine has proved extremely popular. There is a choice of routes every day to cater for a wide variety of abilities and you will always be riding with riders of a similar ability to you.

The six days of riding will focus on improving your winter form and help  prepare  youfor  the  summerriding  ahead.  Eachday  has  a specific goal with a carefully managed workload. Our experienced coaching team will be on hand to talk to you about improving your technique on the bike also, so you make the most of your gain in form.

Our big cycling day will be up the longest climb in Europe, from sea- level to the Teide plateau. This is a box that must be ticked.

After returning to your luxury hotel after each ride day, you will be able to focus on recovering and having a relaxing time, and if you wish, you can attend some seminars which will discuss the techniques of riding and training that will give you the ‘edge’ when you return from the camp.

So, whatever your summer goals, and however experienced you are, you can be certain that you will have a great time, learn something new and gain form during a week on one of these camps.

See what Cycling Weekly have to say about our training camps in this short video.

What Cycling You'll do

Tenerife is a hilly, volcanic island, although lush with greenery, and so we will be taking advantage of the opportunity to do lots of climbing and descending at your own pace. Mount Teide goes to 3800m and there is a large plateau at 2000m.  We will be using the routes to this plateau, and Tiede to give your training some edge. 

For the regulars to our training camps, we have completely re-written our routes for this year.

Hotel Sandos San Blas Nature Resort & Golf 5*

We have secured rooms at a new hotel for 2018 the Sandos San Blas Nature Resort & Golf . We are very excited to be using this hotel as it is away from the main tourist areas in the South and lends itself to lots of new routes. It is located in the South near Golf del Sur and opens up the opportunity for non-riding partners who play golf to also join you on one of these weeks or simply relax in the luxurious aurroundings. The all Inclusive hotel offers luxury accommodation with beautiful sea views and is only a 3 min walk to the beach. The hotel has 8 swimming pools, free WiFi, and a fitness centre and mini-spa with Turkish baths for an extra charge. 

The resort includes attractive gardens and guests can enjoy easy access to a 800,000 m² nature reserve. There are also tennis and volleyball courts. A free shuttle service to Playa de las Americas runs twice a day from the hotel. 

Rooms at the all-inclusive San Blas are spacious and feature contemporary design. Each room has a balcony and hydromassage bath.

Evening meals will be taken in the main buffet restaurant for the first 6 nights.  The final farewell dinner will be a group dinner at the al carte restaurant.
