Camp de Femme - Alpine

Bright, Victoria Australia

16th - 20th November 2016

REGISTRATIONS NOW CLOSED

Based in Bright Victoria this is a true Alpine Training Camp with something for all riders. Over 4 nights/5 days we have rides to challenge each and every rider, flat rolling TT courses through to rides with multiple climbs and over 2000m of climbing. Many of our rides will be over the courses that are used each year in the Tour of Bright.

All rides are fully supported with ride guides and a car, we even throw in some ride nutrition along the way and a QOM section each day.

Food?  There’s no better way to complement a good cycling holiday than by adding great food so each day starts with a cycling inspired breakfast to get you fuelled ready for the day. Bright is also home to many vineyards and we take advantage  of this by offering an option for a beautiful 3 course degustation lunch with matching wines at Gapsted Wines on one of the days, this was one of the many highlights last year as I’m sure it will be again this year.

So – great company and accommodation, small group numbers and lots more over the 5 days makes this a Training Camp to book now. As ride numbers are very limited don’t wait as you may miss out this year.

Sensational choice of mountains to train on and maybe in 2016 Falls Creek could be incorporated? The pool was great for recovery and nice to swim or sit in the sun after each days ride, chat and have a few cold drinks!

The camp was excellent and exceeded my expectations! The alpine cycling and coaching was superb with optimal recovery time after each ride to rest for the next day mountain stage.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What will ride distances and climbing be each day?

You can expect Ride distances to vary between 50 and 120km & ascents from 415m to 2970m. All of the rides are ‘out and back’ which allows for each rider to complete as much or as little of each ride as she wishes.

How fit do I need to be complete & enjoy each days rides?

As the camp is held in the Alpine region and the emphasis each day is geared towards hill climbing it isn’t all up hill. If you have a good base fitness and are doing a minimum of 1 hill climbing session each week for 5 weeks before the camp you should be able to complete each days rides.

What clothing & gearing is recommended?

A full list of recommended clothing will be sent before the camp in your “Ride Guide”.

It would be recommended that you have compact gearing with a minimum of a 28 cog on the back. Better to have it and not use it than to be left wanting on the climbs.

Please bring your normal spares such as tubes and gas cylinders. If you run other than Shimano or Campagnolo 11 speed gearing please bring a spare rear wheel as well.

What happens if it rains?

While every effort is made to ride each day sometimes the weather may not be in our favour. As it is in an Alpine region e can change rides to suit the days weather and have done this as needed previously. With options for shorter harder rides we can also do more Yoga & Stretching sessions along with S & C sessions.

I haven't been to Bright before, where does each days ride go?

Your Camp Info Booklet & Ride guide will have the overview for each days rides along with a description of elevations and distances. All rides will have a GPX file available prior to the camp. You can simply upload these to your Garmin.

Don’t forget you will have ride guides and a support car each day so you won’t be on your own on the rides.

What time does the camp start on Wednesday?

Camp Registrations start from 11am and the first ride leaves Delany Lodge at 2pm.
