Applications are brining invited for a domestique for a short training camp main duties will be ensuring the fridge has cold beer and that the protected riders have adequate sun protection applied
Current squad Me Iain Coutie and George ( Charlie is a maybe)
Going out to Alicante Wednesday 13/09/17 returning Monday 18
Should get a ride Wednesday, through to Monday
Cost TBC
Note any application would have to pass the panel
Key personal skills are that you have adequate hygiene , non snorer , and that you can find your way to the bar .
If Charlie can't make it a degree of map reading will be required

Normally I would be first in the queue with my application. But, work requires my presence. Don't you just hate it when work gets in the way of cycling🚵🚵🚵

Would love to. But not this year. What town are you in again Billy? I'm in Moraira again this summer which I don't think is that far away.

Another time hopefully.

Still a space we are going out Wednesday 13th and back the Monday , you can suit yourself whether you come out for the same time or not
Costs are flight and a share of the cleaning costs , the plan is to have a more relaxed run with a few stops in the Sun likely 60-80 mile runs
PM or reply below if interested

First camp , and now begging to get some idea of the roads, Torrmendo , is a cracking ride and has a few different routes to keep you happy. Hondon valley is fantastic about 80/90 miles but the climb and the descent is worth it.
Garmin GPS pants too slow and likes taking you onto gravel roads.
Think the weather still a bit on the war side so might come out latter next year.

Next trip thinking about November for a long weekend

To enable you to find your *rs* with both hands. Gotta love technology.
I only struggle on the uphill bits. And the flat bits. I'm not good into a headwind either. And downhills are scary. Other than that, I'm fine.
