YELLOVELO TRAINING


ROAD BIKE TRAINING 

Yellovelo Etape Du Tour FinisherExperience the feel of the tarmac under your wheels on these incredible routes & climbs and choose a training camp that suits you and your ego!

If you are aiming high, for the rides of a lifetime, like the Tours Stages and some of the most renowned challenging Alpine climbs, take a look at the Etape Du Tour, Marmotte & Mountain Goat Camps. 

If you are new to the mountains and haven’t really had the best start to your cycling then our Mountain Rookie Camp will give you the skills to ride better, safer, for longer and more efficiently.  

 

Whatever your goals, you will benefit from rider Alex’s 20yrs experience of instructing sports as a fully qualified ISTD/BEES Ski Instructor  and in addition, from his years of training experience for events such as the Etape Du Tour, Haute Route, Marmotte, Morzine, Megeve sportives and many more.  Finishing in the top 4% of the 2016 Etape Du Tour means Alex knows what it takes to not only complete but also to compete! Yellovelo can help you with all aspects of riding.  Whether you need help with certain skills, want to really progress or you like the idea of a bespoke one on one session or you are a cyclist that just doesn’t know what kind of rider you are or lack the confidence to try new things on your own, then we have various itineraries to suit you.

BRITTANY PRE SEASON TRAINING FOR CLUB RIDERS

imgp9090Training in Brittany gives any rider the luxury of quiet roads and endless route options to suit various training programmes.  Undulating terrain with surprisingly steep & cheeky gradients, invisible mountains and long descents all make an ideal training ground for any rider’s ambitions.

Why Brittany? What’s so  special about it? Bernard Hinault 5 times Tour winner, Louison Bobbet Winner of the Tour De France three consecutive years, rookie David Gaudu who won Tour De L’Avenir in 2016 and not forgetting French pro rider with Giant, Warren Barguil were all Brittany born and trained! Not forgetting of course that the famous town of Plumelec that pops up in the Tour De France as well as hosting the 2016 European Cycling Championships.  Enough said!

Yellovelo can assist coaches with guiding and vehicle support and plan routes and itineraries to suit the clubs training needs.  Full board and accommodation provided and airport transfers available upon request.

Coaches, please get in touch with us with your requirements and we’ll do the rest! Contact Us
