Spring Training ...


There’s nothing like a weeklong training camp to get you ready for the new season. 

Why not do one in one of the most cycle-friendly and beautiful places in the world?  If you are new to racing and want to gain experience and confidence, we can help.  If you are a team looking to train for a specific event, we are happy to set this up.  If you are a serious amateur who wants to get away for some good riding with new scenery, come check us out!


Our training camp is based in La Londes-les-Maures, a tiny resort town on the Mediterranean between Toulon and St Tropez.   We are lodged in studio apartments nestled in a vineyard.  We train on the backroads of the Var region of France. 

The region is characterized by its mild weather, cycle friendly and traffic free roads, charming villages, and breathtaking beauty.  There are many tourism sights to add interest to your cycling week.



Our package includes:

-  Ground transportation from the Toulon or Nice airports
-  Seven nights lodging in a studio apartment
-  Half board (all breakfasts, and all dinners)
-  Coaching from a USA Cycling certified coach
-  Guided daily training rides
-  Team car support

We will write the cycling program according to the abilities and desires of the group.
