7 nights 23rd-30th March 2019
We are delighted to announce that we will be organising the VC Meudon/GS Vecchi Spanish spring training camp for the 2nd year in a row. After last year's training camp in the area, Meudon Soreveign Pedal Heaven RT went on to win the Surrey League team and Simon Laws from GS Vecchi the LVRC National Championship.
This year we will be based at the 4 star Gran Hotel Sol y Mar where many World Tour teams base themselves over the winter months.
The package includes the following:
Half board accommodation
Daily led rides with high ride leader/guest ratio
Transfers to/from Alicante airport
Welcome pack and rider manual including GPX files
Storage and maintenance space for bikes
One fully supported epic ride with the Siempre Skoda on-route.
Exclusive trip open to members and friends of VC Meudon and GS Vecchi.
With temperature highs of 20 degrees and average daily sunshine of 7 hours, March in Calpe is perfect to get some pre season training, it is no wonder most World Tour teams base themselves in Calpe over the winter months.
A Sample itinerary for the week would be as follows, however subject to change depending on weather and the group:
Day 1 - After arriving, bike set up and rider briefing, a 74km (1,000m) loop into the Jalón and Orba valleys.
