Breaking Through - Fall Fundamentals Cycling Camp


October 15-17th

Cost $500


It’s time to raise the roof!  What roof are we referring to, you ask? This time of year is the perfect time to raise the ceiling. 

Your ceiling is also known as your long term potential. This camp will give you the knowledge, hands on guidance, and experience to set yourself up to break through ceilings in 2022!

What levels are this for?  All of them!  We will have riders who are just getting started with cycling to riders who are at the top level.  To accommodate each level we will be breaking up into groups out on the road for specific work as well as pacing. 


We will work on:

Solo and group riding skills

Raising your fitness ceiling increasing the long-term potential of zone growth

Building Muscular Strength

Increasing cardiovascular capacity and V02 Max

Increased top-end explosive power 

Group riding skills 

Bike handling skills on pavement and off road
