|San Diego has some of the best riding in the entire country, especially now. The winters are mild, with the average January low temperatures being about 50 F. There’s no shortage of great terrain, from coastal flats and rollers to 6000ft climbs. We asked coach Sean Burke to tell us about the winter training camps he offers there… |
If It’s Good Enough For the Pros…
The pros have discovered San Diego and any have been training here for years. Floyd Landis lives in the northern San Diego County town of Temecula and is frequently seen climbing Palomar Mountain, Axel Merckx spends most of his winters here and can be found hammering on the Swami’s club ride most Saturdays from November to February, and it isn’t unusual to see Chris Horner getting in some winter training riding through the Cleveland National forest that runs through part of San Diego.
Even in January, the sun shines almost everyday in san Diego.
Plenty of Great Rides
After running several 3 and 4 day camps for the riders I coach, and guiding multi-week tours in Italy, I decided it was time to offer week-long training camps in San Diego that allowed “regular Joe” riders to get out of their winter funk and get in some great riding. I just wanted to share this great terrain and great weather with riders from all over the country.
Unlike many of the other camps, this is no “Ride With The Superstars” camp. This camp is simply about getting in the miles, and riding some great routes. The guides are local racers, and each ride has sag support so you don’t have to carry that extra jacket up the hill.www.pezcyclingnews.com/?pg=fullstory&id=3641
