I'm looking for a training camp to go to this spring and was wondering if someone might have some information on where to start looking.
Thanks

I just got this info: www.bikecamp.com run by Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter.

Unless you want to go to Italy, Bikecamp is at the end of July/early August.

Eddie B.(sp?) runs a spring camp in Florida. There are usually ads in Velonews or on their webpage under "camps". Steven Roche runs a series of Spring camps in Spain. As for Spain, believe it or not, the cost would be about the same or less than going to Florida or Colorado for a week. ...thank you strong US dollar and cheap airfares.

I live in Florida, do you have his web page? Spain sounds interesting.

good luck.

P.S. I was all signed up and reserved for the Roche camp in the spring of '00, but had to back out. The pain of getting me and my bike to Majorca, Spain was too much. After 15 hours of traveling, I would have to do 70 miles the next day. NOT! If you have a few days on either side to travel and re-adjust, then Spain would be awesome!

I can't seem to get prices from the website, so if you don't mind me asking, how much is the Roche camp? It sounds awsome.
Thanks

If you aren't looking for a racing camp, the Pac Tour folks offer one that is oriented towards distance riding... either riding a faster century, doing your first Brevet, riding RAAM?

The website is www.pactour.com

The camp is in southern Arizona in early March. Sweet!!!!
