Well, I have just returned from the lovely sunshine in Lanzerote, 20plus degrees, to yet more rain and wind, and it would seem even more to come! This was my first trip to Club La Santa, and the first time I have escaped to somewhere hot to train in the winter months! I thoroughly recommend it. I had not been outside on my bike since Christmas eve, and was beginning to get the training blues before I travelled, primarily because I was fed up with getting up in the dark, getting cold and wet, and only looking at the walls when training on my bike! However, a week of training in the sunshine, having the sun on my back, and getting miles and miles of biking in has renewed my enthusiasm, and has made me refocus on the season to come! Thanks for the company Liz, Louella and Mandy, great fun was had all round! If you are interested in getting abroad for some training, don’t forget our Alpe Dhuez Training week! More details on this will be following shortly, however, in the meantime, have a read of the blog on the website and please contact us if you are up for some mountain climbing!
