Welcome to the Gold Coast
Our trip starts with staff meeting you at Gold Coast airport at 11 am. It is only a short drive to our hotel in the heart of the Gold Coast and a short walk from the beach.
For those arriving a day or two earlier, Bikestyle Tours can arrange a pre-trip accommodation on the Gold Coast. Soon after arriving at our hotel, we will assemble our bicycles and head out for a short warm-up ride to check our bikes, cover group riding skills and etiquette which we will need for the weekend.
After returning from the ride you will learn the “hows and why” of periodisation of training.
We will celebrate the start of our trip together at a local restaurant.
Our ride today will see us head over of the border for an amazing and challenging ride. We will combine today’s ride with several training elements we learnt yesterday to hone our skills. The ride will include group efforts, individual efforts and skill development (descending and climb) plus there will be time to enjoy the spectacular coastline.
Our focus for today is to learn “how to train” and the basic building blocks to construct a detailed training plan.
In the afternoon we will hold a seminar on nutrition to get the most out of your training.
Gold Coast Hinterland
Today will explore one of the many rides in the Gold Coast Hinterland. Our ride today will see us climb one of our favourite rides up to Springbrook, a gentle 8km climb with spectacular views of the Gold Coast Hinterland. We will enjoy a great descent back to our hotel. Staff will be on hand to assist with packing your bike in preparation for your trip home.
After our ride we will hold a Q & A session before wrapping up the weekend.
We will provide a single transfer back to Gold Coast airport at 3pm.
