Girls Summer Training Camp: 29th June – 1st July

2015 training camps

Following the success of our February Mid Term Training Camp, the Women’s Commission of Cycling Ireland will run a Summer Training Camp at the end of June.

Our Summer Training Camp will run for 3 days, from Monday 29th June to Wednesday 1st July. The Training Camp will be open to female riders from 13 years old to 23 years old.

The Summer Training Camp will be run on the same lines as last year’s Summer Camp, and will also incorporate some of the feedback from the Mid Term camp in February.

The camp aims to cater for everyone, and included in our itinerary will be Road Skills, Mountain Biking, Track Cycling and BMX cycling. There will also be mock racing, hopefully in all the above disciplines.

There will, as usual, also be a Road Ride/Training Spin, and with this in mind all participants should note the distance abilities we will be operating around:

  • 13 – 14 years should be able to ride up to 40km in one spin
  • 15 – 16 years should be able to ride up to 70km in one spin
  • 17 – 23 years should be able to ride up to 90km in one spin

Accommodation for the Summer Training Camp will be in Kippure Adventure Centre, Manor Kilbride, Co. Wicklow. This is the same venue we used for our 2014 Summer Training Camp, and all who attended agreed that it was ideal.

During the three days of the camp we also hope to try some of the other activities on offer at Kippure Adventure Centre, time and weather permitting.

The camp will be self-catering over the three days and two nights of it’s duration. And once again we look forward to having top sports’ nutritionist Beth McCluskey on board to teach participants about nutrition for sport.

Thanks to the funding provided by the Women’s Commission, the cost of the camp will only be €100 per participant. This fee includes accommodation, food and training sessions.

A full programme for the Summer Training Camp will be sent to all those attending, this will happen a few days after the closing date.

Places on this Summer Training Camp will be strictly limited, and will be on a first-come-first-served basis. To book your place please use this link and please note that the closing date for booking is Sunday 21st June.
