Why do you love cycling? It’s gets you fit, keeps you in shape, keeps your heart strong and your body healthy. It takes you to beautiful places, it feels freeing and the wind in your hair, the sweat on your face, the continuous forward movement makes you feel alive. You get to meet like-minded individuals, who become your friends over hills, coffee stops and guilt-free cake. Our Cycling Retreat is a melting pot for all these things, the best of all of it, with additional care and attention to your body and an added pinch of adventure to all you free spirits out there, in need of shaking off some shackles!
This trip, in conjunction with Anna’s Legs and VeloVixen, is designed to make you stronger as a cyclist by first and foremost, focusing on your legs. The hilly rides will leave your legs tired, but evening cycling specific yoga classes and a personal massage/physio session will give your muscles the work they need to recover each day. At the end of the week, your legs will have built muscle and stamina with the necessary recovery to allow you to start benefiting as soon as you return home.
But this is not a factory training camp! This is for those who are seeking complete stimulation of all senses. You will see views that will blow your mind, stop for lunch in towns that the tourists forgot, experience the warm Andalucian culture, feel wet sand between your toes, gasp at the cold water of the waterfalls and chat, laugh, eat and drink in our welcoming villas.
Spend 4 nights in our tranquil villa in white-washed mountain town of Mijas, from where we will take you on 3 cycling routes, followed by a nutritious, vegetarian evening meal by our in-house chef. Relax by the pool, pop into town for a Sangria and partake in the yoga classes on a beautiful terrace with a view of the sea in the evening. The 4th day is a forced rest day and you have the choice of blissfully doing nothing in the calm of the villa, getting a bus down to the sea and shops or joining us for a scramble along the river bank to discover the beauty of the famous Timotei Waterfalls.
Day 5 we will transfer you an hour in-land to get mesmerised by the world-known National Park of El Chorro - the home of Anna’s Legs photoshoots. Your two rides here will take you past turquoise green lakes, golden fields and hazy blue mountains. It holds a beauty that you will never forget. Yoga continues in our new villa and wetsuits are provided for those who want to feel the lakes as well as see them.
IS THIS FOR YOU?
Can you manage 60KM rides?
Our mantra is that nobody gets left behind. For those chasing Queen of the Mountains, there are long climb opportunities for everyone to push themselves at their own pace, to train and to improve. But we always regroup and ride together at the pace of the weakest person. The Anna’s Legs ambassadors will be in attendance, ensuring that everyone feels the stoke and part of the group. Our shared values are that we want to see more bums on saddles and smiling faces. We know the importance of friendship and encouragement and we know that you will not find a more welcoming cycling camp in the world!
