Dolomites Training Camp

Dolomites Training Camp

Your unique Dolomites training camp

Whether you’re a beginner looking to get serious about cycling or an experienced racer aiming to fine-tune your performance, our cycling training camp will provide the structured environment and expert guidance needed to reach your goals.

In fact, the Ride Your Life Dolomites training camp is designed in a breathtaking landscape, featuring stays in two different locations: Alta Badia and Val Gardena.

Of course, participants will enjoy comfortable accommodations equipped with massage facilities, perfect for unwinding after a day’s ride.

In addition, one of the main highlights of our bike training camps is the presence of two essential figures: the mental coach and the nutritionist.

This is because we believe a training Camp should not only allow you to enjoy cycling, great food and connection with the local culture, but also enhance your understanding of technique, nutrition, and endurance, especially during climbs and long distances.

Dolomites training Camp

A unique and spectacular territory

When you bike in the Dolomites, you become part of a unique and spectacular landscape, dramatically framed by 3000-meter peaks, deep river valleys, and rocky cliffs that emerge from dense woods like sharp fangs. Not to mention sunrise and sunset when the rock walls glow a mesmerizing pink, making everything even more spectacular.

In addition, as you pedal silently up these climbs, you will be enveloped by the breathtaking scenery, feeling an intense connection with nature. However, it is incredible to think that 250 million years ago this area was an underwater coral reef. Today it is an ecosystem tailor-made for cyclists and climbers. Therefore, it is perfect for our Dolomites Training Camp.

The core of Ride Your Life training Camp: a holistic approach to training and wellness

At the heart of our training camp is a holistic embrace of training and wellness that integrates essential elements such as physical activity, nutrition tips, professional mental coaching, and indulgent wellness care.

Not only that, a luxurious spa is housed in the training camp to ensure that every aspect of your well-being is thoroughly cared for.

Overall, the entire training camp offers more than just a cycling experience; on the other hand, it provides an opportunity for enjoyment and growth in cycling that will leave you with valuable knowledge and good practices to incorporate into your daily life.

Ride Your Life’s unique Dolomites training camp is not just about fitness, it is a journey to holistic wellness.
