I was thinking about doing one for a short biking vacation.
Don't sugarcoat it, tell us how you really feelmavicwheels said:I wouldn't do a CTS camp again, even if I won it for free. We got to the airport in california, and the pickup was 2 hours late! The hotel was not as billed, I was with my spouse (also participating in the camp). The rooms were extremely small, no heat or a/c to speak of. There was construction going on starting at 5 a.m. Needless to say no sleep!
The bike mechanic that CTS hired broke the derailler hanger on my new bike, so I could not ride the first three days. The sessions were not well organized and the location of the feed zones during the rides changed twice with no notice.
Chris Carmichel was a friggin no show to boot. I would not recommend them to anyone. Their coaches are only interested in making money, and don't give a rat's A$$ about you except when it comes time to pay the bill
my .02 cents
That actually would be perfect, unfortunately no camps until next year unless Peaks hasn't updated the web page. I'll give a call today.Coolhand said:For North Carolina, maybe look at Peaks Cycling- really good with power, and I enjoyed the Tuscon camp I did with them.
Tuscon in February = awesome btw.
Surely you had a "heart to heart" talk with CTS after the camp. Something like "mail my refund to ....."! What was their response?mavicwheels said:The OP asked if anyone had done a CTS training camp, I did was not happy at all. ............ We found outselves lacking in both service and the expertise that was promised in the brochure...............
Thanks, it's about a 3 hr drive from here, would be convenient both in timing and taking all the crap I like to lug rather then packing the bike bag on a plane. Blue Ridge/skyline drive is Awesome, I'm fortunate here in VA to have a good chunk of it coursing through the state. Try the Front Royal VA 80 mile route, it's like a mini TDF stageroadie92 said:I did the camp in NC and it was the best time I ever had on a bike. I am going again this summer. The coachs are GREAT. You learn a lot. There are hotels all over the place so it won't be hard to find on. One of my favorite places is riding the Blue Ridge Pakway it is really pretty up there. I would recommend going to the camp in NC!!!!!
