Murcia Cycle Training Camp
We aim to provide you with the complete “pro-team” experience with a support vehicle, mechanic and guide. The team at Arrivée Travel are all passionate cyclists that are equally passionate about riding some of the best roads in the world. Our camps have an amazing reputation of being well organised with all rider needs taken care of – all you have to do is ride (and eat)!
Our second training camp for 2016 takes in the Sierra Espuña national park in Southern Spain. The park is named after the highest peak, the Espuña which tops at just over 1500 meters!
Whilst the Espuna is no doubt the ‘Queen’ day, the other day’s riding takes in the Barranco de Carrascoy National Park with it’s medium length climbs, and the La Muelo Cabo Tinoso near Cartagena, which has both long, steady climbs and short, steep lung-busters. What all three Parks have in common however, are the stunning views they offer to distract you from your effort. As a way of easing into each ride (or accumulating the miles, depending on who you ask), we have around 10-40miles of flat miles at the start of each ride to get you warmed up before the race climbs.
Our base is the stunning 4 star Hotel Traina in San Pedro Del Pinatar, a short walk form the Mar Menor salt-water lagoon, the largest in Europe. The restaurant, something that becomes ever more important as the fatigue hole gets bigger and bigger, is recommended by the Michelin guide. The is also a café that serves amazing café bon bons, perfect to sip whilst the País Vasco (Tour of the Basque Country) is shown on the big screen. When the racing isn’t on, the rooftop pool with extensive views is a good place to relax post-ride.
At Arrivee Travel we try to go above and beyond what similar camps offer; we pick you up from the airport when you arrive and drop you off again after the week’s riding; in-ride nutrition is provided by local suppliers in the form of fruit, pop, biscuits and whatever Andy, the driver, decides to purchase on the day! Also included are easy-to-eat, delicious bars, flapjacks and gels courtesy of OTE Sports Nutrition. As part of your booking, you’ll even get a discount code for 25% off online orders via OTE’s website
