Winter Road Miles Camp

WINTER BLUES NO MORE!

Break up the cold dark days of February and jump start your new year with plenty of sun drenched miles in beautiful south Florida. The objective of this camp is time in the saddle at endurance pace to boost your base fitness. Winter gets really long for everyone in the north and there’s no better way to break up the cold dark month of February than by getting away for a sunny road camp!

The camp will consist of 5 days of BPC coach lead group riding with follow car support. With strong athlete to coach ratios, every athlete is guaranteed the attention to detail you’ve come to expect from BPC. Wether it’s on ride tips and pointers to be more comfortable and efficient in a group, or through post ride power file review, we’ve got you covered!

SUNDAY

Today is arrival day. Out of town athletes should plan to arrive by 3pm if possible. Each athlete is responsible for building their own bike and ensuring that all their equipment is properly tuned and ready for a big week of riding. We will have our first pre-camp meeting around 5pm at the hotel and will complete the sign in/registration process. This is also when we will do individual introductions, general camp overview and plan for the week. Once complete we will go to dinner as a group at a local restaurant. **If you want to schedule a bike fit with ERO, you must arrive early on this day and schedule ahead of time with ERO directly at www.ero-sports.com**

 

MONDAY

The first day of riding is intended as a “cobweb-cleanout” for those athletes who have been trapped indoors for a few months and will serve as a calibration ride for the group. Today we will ride approximately 40 miles through the sleepy Key Biscayne islands so everyone can get acclimated to the abundant sun and new surroundings. At the end of the ride we will do a group recap over lunch and discuss the plan for tomorrow’s ride. This afternoon will be a great time to sit down with a BPC coach one on one to review your power data if you wish or any other questions you might have. We will then meet for dinner as a group at a local restaurant.

 

TUESDAY

Day 2 of riding will see us punch in 60 miles as we ride along the coast from Miami Beach north to Ft. Lauderdale and back. This will be our first chance to test our efficiency at endurance pace as a group as we build to the longer rides in the coming days. At the end of the ride we will do a group recap over lunch and discuss the plan for tomorrow’s ride. This afternoon will be a great time to sit down with a BPC coach one on one to review your power data if you wish or any other questions you might have. We will then meet for dinner as a group at a local restaurant.

 

WEDNESDAY

For today’s ride we head south from Miami Beach to Florida City and back. Our 80 miles today will be largely coastal riding with a little turn inland near the mid point before heading back the way we came. Our big focus today will be timely and proactive feeding patterns in preparation for our biggest day of the week tomorrow. A quick snack will be provided at the completion of the ride because we re-group for an early dinner in preparation for a big early day tomorrow.

 

THURSDAY

Today’s the BIG day! Expect an early start as we will have to transport to the start of our day in Key Largo. From Key Largo we will ride 100 miles one way all the way to Key West, finishing at the Southernmost Point in the continental U.S. Today will showcase everything we have learned thus far in the camp as you experience 100 miles of riding stronger than you every felt possible for January! We will change and have a celebratory dinner in Key West before we catch our transportation back to Miami Beach.

 

FRIDAY

This is our “cherry on top” day with a easy 30 mile spin to flush the week out of your legs before traveling home. Immediately following the ride we will meet at a local coffee shop for a bite to eat as we do a quick recap for the week and begin our travel home. BPC coaches will be available for a final individual recap of the week for power file review and to answer any questions. The camp will conclude by 2pm at the latest and athletes have the afternoon to themselves or can begin their travel home.

The Miami cycling scene is one of the strongest in the nation and for good reason! Even in February the average highs are in the upper 70’s and lows only dropping near 60. This means every daylight hour provides near perfect conditions to get out and log some much needed miles while absorbing plenty of vitamin D. Add to that the fact that February is one of the driest months of the year for Miami and this really is a cyclist’s paradise! 

We will be staying and base out of the historic Miami Beach area right on the oceanfront! We will wake up to the picturesque Atlantic sunrise daily, have time to hit the beaches in some of the afternoons and take in plenty of the latin culture and cuisine by night. All of this combined will make this cycling camp truly feel like more of a vacation than camp! Leaving you with fitness that will last in to the season, training skills for your career and memories that will last a lifetime.
