Sands Beach Resort, Lanzarote
With its strong winds and hills, Lanzarote is the perfect location for cycle training. The island is a hub for cyclists and triathletes, road conditions are good and generally quiet. It is also home to the famous Ironman Lanzarote along with numerous other races.
Conditions in March are typically warm, with an average temperature of 18C, little rain and generally lighter winds. A perfect location for a training camp.
Sands Beach Resort in Costa Teguise will provide high quality half board accommodation for the week. The resort includes a 25m pool, trails for running and easy access to Lanzarote's cycling routes.
The focus for these camps is early season training volume, a hint of competition and some fun. Each day will involve swim, bike and run: coached sessions in the 25m pool, guided rides around the island, including the Ironman course, and daily run options to complete the training.
Sessions will incorporate sections of the Ironman bike course and the Lanzarote 70.3 bike course, along with the traditional time trial up Tabayesco.
