Power Training Camp
Wales, United Kingdom

 

 

CPT Cycling announces an exciting new Training Camp for 2021, to be held in Wales. We are aiming to keep many of the popular elements of CPT Cycling Camps, including capping the amount of places available to enable personal on road coaching and face to face individual power analysis with coach Richard.

There will be iconic climbs in the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, such as Rhigos and the Tumble. But this time there may be dragons! There will also be some days along flatter terrain to allow for more riding as a group.

We have chosen to hold this camp in September, firstly because the weather in Wales should be slightly warmer and dryer than in the winter! but also to give a kick of form to your late summer race season if more events are moved forward and it is also perfect timing if you are preparing for the Tour of Cambridgeshire.

This Camp will be based in a Central Cardiff Hotel with breakfast included and we will also have a lunch cafe stop on most rides, midway and after most of the climbing has been completed.

Gweld chi yno. Stay tuned for updates!
