Gran Canaria 7-Day Winter Endurance Camp

We’re back in Gran Canaria for our winter endurance camp! Our 2016 camp here was a big success; we have created this trip as the weather is starting to draw in back home. The aim of this camp is to get lots of miles into the legs in anticipation of a long winter and when coupled with our Spring Training Camp, sets you up for a long, strong season.
The riding pace is not too strenuous, averaging 15-17mph each day with lots of climbing. You are free to ride as hard or as steady as you want. The experienced guides are always happy to show you a particular segment or shelter you from the wind on the coastal road!
The riding team at Arrivée Travel are all passionate cyclists that compete throughout the season, from weekly circuit races to the National Championships. Our camps have an amazing reputation for being stress-free and great value, with all rider needs taken care of – all you have to do is ride!
Our camps are known for being incredibly focused and the best in the world for competing and strong cyclists. Many riders go back home and win events off the back of the work done on the trip.
Gran Canaria’s reputation as a destination for winter camps has accelerated in the last few years. For all the different levels of cycling ability and fitness, there’s a constant series of riding challenges. From flat plains, to the monolithic, serpentine mountain passes, with short climbs and undulating coastal roads in-between. Gran Canaria is a cycling amusement park.
Gran Canaria is a land of brooding mountains, vast valleys and fast, smooth roads. The island is of volcanic origin off the coast of West Africa and enjoys year round sunshine with only twenty days of rain a year. Double World Champion Peter Sagan spends part of his pre-season preparation on the island. Its not uncommon to spot riders of the calibre of ex-world champion Lizzie Deighnan or Team Sky’s Peter Kennaugh.
We’ll show you why many pros call Gran Canaria the best place for a winter endurance camp.
This year we’ve moved slightly east from our previous base in Puerto Rico to Bahia Feliz to the lovely BlueBay Beach Club ****. We will stay in their twin en-suite rooms (doubles available for couples at no extra cost) with buffet breakfast and dinner provided. The hotel is a one minute walk from the beach, ideal for triathletes who wish to have an early morning swim before breakfast. Maspalomas, the main resort on the island, is a short bus or taxi ride away, and the capital, Las Palmas, is 30mins by car for those wanting to experience some authentic Canarian culture.
