BCC Pre-Season Destination Training Camp (South Carolina)

BCC Friends,

During the off-season a number of BCC members expressed interest in destination bike tours and training camps.  

I have been in contact with another team that I have done destination bike tours with (Team Revolution, Klienburg) and they have scheduled a team climbing camp through Trek Travel in Greenville, South Carolina for end of April. 

I have proposed doing the same camp to the BCC Race Team members for preparation ahead of the Road Racing Season at end of March and I would like to extend the same invitation to all BCC members (all skill levels).

As noted before, the training camp is through Trek Travel in Grenville, South Carolina.  Here is the link to the Trek Travel website ... https://trektravel.com/trip/greenville-ride-camp-4-day/

The camp is 4 days long (Thursday - Sunday) and is "guided" for two days (Friday and Saturday).  The cost is $999 USD (approx. $1,400CAD) and it includes bike rental (Trek Domane SL) and accommodations at a local hotel (Embassy Suites by Hilton).  Flight and transportation from airport to the hotel is extra.  I have booked my flight for $380 CAD return.  Greenville is a "hilly" area and the primary focus of the camp is CLIMBING (ranging from 2,000 to 7,000 feet per day).

There are currently 2 of us confirmed to attend this camp  from March 23 to March 26.  

If you are interested in attending on the same dates please let me know so that I can give Trek Travel heads up that more of our team members will be attending (there are still 10+ openings available).  Also, you can reach out to Trek Travel directly and make your own arrangements.

Hope to hear from some of you and see you in Greenville.

Cheers, Luke.

I can't join you this time, but I have travelled through Greenville, SC a few times for work.  On every trip, I've said to myself that it would be a glorious place to ride.  If you can manage a side trip, it's worth the 1-hour drive to Asheville, NC.  The terrain for riding is equally good.  The main industry in Asheville seems to be microbreweries.  Be sure to visit Hi-Wire.  If you go to Asheville, try to get a table at Cúrate, a spectacular Spanish restaurant, and then walk around the block to French Broad Chocolates. Safe travels.

I'm envious, but can't join you this year.  Hopefully will be able to in future years!
