BikeEnvy office is closed

The BikeEnvy office is officially lacking in staff this week, both Jan and Bex are in Spain on road training camps.

Jan is trying out a road camp in Majorca putting in some serious miles before her track racing season, and Bex is coaching a group of American cyclists in the hilly coastal region of Costa Brava with Eurocycler*.




However many camps we’ve been on, the night we arrive and before riding begins is always a tad unsettling sleep-wise. The anticipation and adrenalin does something weird to the body and mind, doubled with being tired from a crazy early flight, we wonder how can one be so tired yet sleep so lightly? Maybe it’s the aftermath of a day sitting in airports breathing stale air from the great and unwashed public?


Anyway a prologue ride rinses away all that quite nicely, especially after 1000m of climbing and 65km on the stunning coastal rodes. Today we rode from our seriously kitted out sports resort near Tossa de Mar along the coast too Sant Filiu de Guixols to the hill top village of Romanya and back through the rolling farmland over one more pass before an epic descent back to the resort in time for a late lunch and some serious beach-time. There’s only just time for a dip in the hydrotherapy pool before drinks and supper!

How fabulous that the km’s zip by so quickly on the new and gleaming tarmac surface and how much better that we get to do this for another week before the office beckons us back?
