The goal of this cycling camp is to focus on improving your ride skills and techniques as well as race tactics and strategy. The beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains are the perfect place for a spring cycling camp with awesome climbing opportunities, quiet country roads for race scenarios, and it’s the hometown for the Peaks Coaching Group Headquarters. You will receive daily on-the-road coaching from Hunter, Scott, and the team as well as after ride power analysis and power training that will help your training all season long.
