Gaps Climbing Camp
A FULLY-SUPPORTED TRAINING WEEKEND DESIGNED TO HELP YOU REACH
YOUR FULLEST POTENTIAL AS AN ATHLETE.
Live the life of a professional athlete for a weekend by joining us at our Gaps Climbing Camp. Your coaches have one goal in mind – making you the best you can be.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
A weekend focused on training without all the daily pressures or distractions that surround you. You’ll wake up to a healthy breakfast and head out to your bike which is tuned and ready to go. Want to try out a new choice for nutrition? Mix up a bottle or grab some packets on the way out the door. Get live feedback from an experienced coach while out on the road and if you have a flat or need a refill, our SAG support will arrive within minutes.
When you’re not training, you’ll learn valuable information that you can apply to your training, loosen up from a long day with yoga led by the experts from Infinity Yoga, dine on nutrient-rich meals and enjoy a community of like-minded individuals.
This trip is all-inclusive so you don’t need to worry about housing, commute times or directions. Once you arrive, we’ll take care of everything.
Arrive between 2 and 5 pm. Check in and get your bike checked out so it’s ready to ride. You can add optional services like saddle fits, hydration system installation or one on one yoga instruction this day. We’ll start with dinner as a group and get an overview of the weekend and best practices for climbing.
Optional add-ons Thursday: VO2 Max Testing or Cycling Video Analysis and Feedback.
After enjoying a hearty breakfast get ready for some climbing. Today we’ll divide into groups and take on the 3-Gaps ride. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned climber, you’ll get valuable feedback and a challenging day in the mountains. Return for a healthy lunch and then an optional afternoon trail run or hike before a late day session with mobility session. Finish the day with a group dinner and time by the campfire.
Today we’ll tackle some of the tough climbs of the North Georgia Mountains with the Six Gap Ride. Average ride time will be approximately six hours. We’ll return from the ride for a hearty lunch and some time for relaxation and an athlete-focused session with Infinity Yoga before our group dinner.
Start your morning with Infinity Yoga and then head out for a trail run before we head out the door by noon.
